iTunes Review

Prolific and multi-dimensional, Eliza Gilkyson has been steadily releasing smart, melodic folk-rock since the late ‘80s. On Roses At the End of Time she explores an assortment of textures and moods to create a balanced album filled with finely crafted songs. Her diversity and creative restlessness are on full display here. “Blue Moon Night” and “Death in Arkansas” unfold slowly and carefully, “Slouching Towards Bethlehem” grooves to a lazy shuffle beat supported by trombone and dobro, and she uses loops and drum machines to great effect on “Belle of the Ball” and “Once I Had a Home.” With the voice of a true storyteller she intertwines social and personal topics through vivid, intelligent lyrics as on the energetic “Looking for a Place” and “Vayan al Norte,” which tells the tale of illegal immigrants. Gilkyson fans will find Roses At the End of Time to be another solid and satisfying release by this talented singer-songwriter.

Great, Great, Great!

I love Eliza. What an American folk treasure. Red Horse was wonderful and so is this new record. Support this beautiful artist and buy it!

Stunning

I only recently started to listen to Eliza, but have been adding her music to my collection at a frantic pace since the night I first saw her in December 2010. This album is just one more in a long line of outstanding albums. Her lyrics are poetry and her voice is beautiful and versatile. Favorite track is "Belle of the Ball," which contains recollections of her mother. It's sung in a beautiful dream-like way, and reflects exactly how you remember little snippets of a loved one. Brilliant.

Another Treasure

One more in a recent series of wonderful albums by a fantastic songwriter.
