This is the CD that, in my mind, rivals her debut. I have been a Tracy fan since her debut CD. Along with Crossroads, Tracy Chappan and New Beginning, Telling Stories provides consistent brilliance through out. It is a blend of folk, organic rock, a bif of dance (believe it or not). Stand out songs: Telling Stories - great start and guitar work It's OK - upbeat - you got to get up and dance Wedding Song - somber and beautiful Devotion - One of my all time favoriate Tracy song. About love, obsession, infatuation, devotion.. You will not be dissapointed.

Let Tracy Tell You A Story.

This album is brilliant. Tracy never ceases to amaze me with her talent. I personally love Telling Stories, Speak the Word, and Wedding Song, and the others are amazing as well. Thank you Tracy for inspiring us all with your insightful music.
