iTunes Review

Seven years after her last work with The Dixie Chicks and 10 since she was effectively banned from commercial country music radio for criticizing George W. Bush's war in Iraq, Natalie Maines bypasses country music for a far more adventurous rock sound that lets her sing as never before. Producer Ben Harper keeps the arrangements fluid; his song "Trained" is delivered as a two-and-a-half-minute blast of pure hard rock release. Pink Floyd's "Mother" takes on a new point of view when sung by a woman. "Come Cryin' to Me," written with the other Dixie Chicks, nails down a solid Americana-rock sound. The Jayhawks' "I'd Run Away" defies gravity and takes flight. Dan Wilson, who cowrote a few Dixie Chicks hits, brings "Free Life" for Maines to deliver as a soft rocker. Patty Griffin's "Silver Bell" chugs along as a '70s Stones–like rocker, with thick guitar riffs and a pounding piano pushing Maines forth. But it's Jeff Buckley's "Lover, You Should've Come Over" where Maines uses every vocal technique in her arsenal to transcend all genres, ending up in a place of unique expression and art.

Not the chicks but def something worth buying and listening to. :). Something from her is better than nothing. As for those of you that continue to boycott her for something she said years ago, may you never do something in your life that results in judgement by others and if you do I hope they give you hell!


so glad that natalie is making music again. even if she does not forsee a time when she will want to record new songs with the sisters at least they will still tour live together. It would have been such a sad thing for someone with as much talent as her to have quit music professionally completely.


It took long that its here, it seems like a subdued number to kick off the collection. Nonetheless, I am highly expecting a grat freshman project. Now that she is back, here's hoping she will kill it! Good job!
