Album Review

When Mila Mason first moved to Nashville, she came to write songs. In 1996, Mason emerged as a recording artist with a single called "That's Enough of That," which garnered her significant attention and a debut album with the same title. After a second album producing her signature song, "Darkhorse," Mason faded from the airwaves to continue honing her songwriting. Now, the call of record-making has led Mason and her blond curls to a new label and a self-written album entitled Stained Glass Window. The album has only ten cuts, which is unusual considering the new trend is a 12-14 cut release; it's a good thing sometimes less is more. The staple cut is "Maybe, Maybe Not," a story about coincidence so finely crafted by Mason and writing partner Jim Collins that not only are the images of a quarter tumbling in the dryer vivid and real, but the melody is also infectious. Cut two, "What Are the Odds," also a story of fate, is about getting back a five-dollar bill with a personal message written years before. The title cut is deeply personal and teaches a great lesson about not being overly judgmental. Mason's duet with husband and co-writer, Jason Grainger, on the religious love song "Somebody Must Love Me," comes out a bit uneven, as Grainger's R&B-tinged vocals (his style evokes the image of a male Tracy Chapman) contrast greatly with Mason's sultry rasp. The Hammond organ in the background is a nice touch, though, and the writing is superb. Grainger's writing influence is also part of "Blame It on Me," an ironically positive, up-tempo tune. What this album really has going for it is rhythm and soul. Not all of the songs are top-notch, but the musical arrangements are original and appealing. Mason clearly has plenty to offer country music.

Customer Reviews

Who wrote that album review

The song Dark Horse is not on Mila's second album, The Strong One, which iTunes sells but it isn't listed under the same Mila Mason as the Stained Glass Window CD. It was on her first CD, That's Enough of That, which iTunes doesn't sell. Whoever wrote this review should check their facts and iTunes need to list all her work under the same name instead of having her listed twice. Mila was underated as an artist and a song writer. She had a unique sound which is missing from a lot of today's country music. I wish she had been a bigger star.

THATS ENOUGH OF THAT ALBUM

I agree with the last/only review of this album to date. DARK HORSE is on Mila's THAT'S ENOUGH OF THAT CD, which is an amazing album!!!!!!!!!!!! Why is it not available??? DARK HORSE is probably one of the best songs ever, and only Mila can sing it (there are other versions by other artists). It's very hard to find this album, so much this song, nowdays. My only question is WHY?? Because it truly is such a shame!!!!!!!!!!!

Biography

Born: 1974 in Dawson Springs, KY

Genre: Country

Years Active: '90s

Mila Mason first moved to Nashville at the age of 17 with her mother, a successful performer who toured Europe and had a regular gig in Las Vegas opening for the Commodores. Yet, it wasn't performing that first lured young Mason into the music scene; her love of songwriting was what really spurred her on. Mason looked at herself as a hopeful trendsetter on the Music City scene. To make ends meet, Mason sang demos and jingles while knocking on doors at Music Row like most aspiring artists and writers...
