Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Since the breathtaking purity of her debut, Living with Ghosts, Patty Griffin has proven she can luxuriate in glamorous pop, rock like a biker, hold her own on stage with the Dixie Chicks, and write hit songs and singer-songwriter classics. What she hadn't done is craft an album as wholly exquisite and emotional as her talent. With the spare, acoustic 1000 Kisses, she has done just that. In the basement of longtime guitarist Doug Lancio's Nashville home, Griffin takes a suite of intensely personal songs (and three covers, including a tingling version of Bruce Springsteen's "Stolen Car") into the close confidence of her airy but twang-shaded voice, and draws accordion, cello, mandolin, brushed drums, and even Emmylou Harris into a candid and rare musical space. After a four-year wait, 1000 Kisses is more than reason to celebrate Griffin's return--it's a guileless, glowing masterpiece. --Roy Kasten

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, Spare, Accoustic Gem July 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
On "1000 Kisses," Patty Griffin manages the difficult trick of producing a hard-hitting album of accoustic songs. Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska" has always been the benchmark for such efforts, and "1000 Kisses" stands up nicely next to that masterpiece. Griffen even covers The Boss's song "Stolen Car" from his album "The River" and manages to move it into "Nebraska" territory. Of the original songs on the album, the opener "Rain" sets the tone, while "Making Pies," "Long Ride Home," and "Nobody's Crying" are the other gems.
Emmylou Harris puts in a guest appearance, which is fitting since the sound of this album somewhat resembles Harris's recent solo work. The only drawbacks are the album's brevity (10 songs, less than 40 minutes) and the fact that the last two cuts, the Spanish language version of the title track and a short instrumental number, really don't work. Otherwise, this album is as haunting as any that has been released in the last few years.
Overall, an accoustic tour-de-force from an artist with talent to burn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patty Griffin's warm and welcome "Kisses" April 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I attended a concert earlier tonight at Joe's Pub here in NYC where Griffin performed most of the tracks from 1000 KISSES live. That, after weeks of daily aural intake of an advance copy of the CD. Seeing Griffin perform live will always be one of my favorite things. Greedily, I always leave her shows wanting more. But, happily, I'm always filled to brimming with the quality and honesty of what she delivered.
I've been hooked on this remarkably talented artist's music since the folky LIVING WITH GHOSTS was released nearly 6 years ago. FLAMING RED came two years later and shared a similar quality of songwriting with its predecessor, albeit with a bigger, bolder sound behind it than LIVING WITH GHOSTS.
Now, 1000 KISSES curls easily into the ear with a little of both those previous outings evident.
Before the wrapper is even off the CD, the first thing most listeners will notice is that 1000 KISSES offers the fewest vocal tracks from a Griffin album to date (Track 10 is an instrumental reprise of "Mil Besos," which I'll get to later). But Griffin has never been one to opt for quantity over quality, which one would be foolish to hold against her when what she presents is so solid and whole just as it is. As has been happily reported in industry magazines, this is undoubtedly Griffin's most honest and emotional album yet. And that's saying a lot considering how much those qualities were already evident in her previous work.
A number of fans balked at the forward-thinking approach to production on FLAMING RED, complaining it was too beefy, too rocky. Those folks should be pleased to know that the production this time around certainly leans more toward the organic sound of Griffin's debut CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1000 Kisses couldn't be sweeter April 11, 2002
By toddw
Format:Audio CD
It was a long wait, but the new release by Patty Griffin, 1000 Kisses, is a lyrical and musical masterpiece. Easily the most powerful release of this year, or perhaps of many years, it is a bold display of complex lyrics, textured arrangements and a singing voice that strings the listener along, begging for more. One of the many highlights for me is the opening track Rain, it starts softly, builds in complexity, with beautiful spiraling layers of music and vocals rich with emotion, letting one down gently again at the end, like a roller coaster. Patty Griffin again shows with Stolen Car that only she can sing a Bruce Springsteen song better than the Boss himself. But it is the originals that steal the show on 1000 Kisses. Making Pies, Be Careful, Long Drive Home, with otherworldly harmonies from Emmylou Harris and the stellar Nobody's Crying pack enough emotional punch to keep one listening to this CD over and over again. I cannot say enough about the quality of this singer and this recording. I just hope that we don't have to wait as long for the next one, I wish someone could/would release Silver Bell!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Patty returns to her roots May 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
So my story with Patty Griffin is I saw her at a Landmine Benefit concert in Chicago. I swore before the concert I knew all the performers, although I could not name a song by Patty. Then she sang her first song of the night. Afterwards, my beloved Steve Earle said "Yikes!" before he tried one of his own songs, realizing what a formidable act he had to follow. I realized I had never seen or heard of Patty before, and I had to have more. I bought Living with Ghosts, and fell in love with the album, in particular the song Sweet Lorraine. However, with 1000 Kisses, in my humble opinion, Patty surely bests Living with Ghosts. Thanks to Dave Matthews for rescueing Patty from record label limbo. I love this album. My favorite song is "Long Way Home", a song of total irony. Here is a sad song about a funeral and burying a love of 40 years, and my 6 year old daughter is dancing a jig to it. "Be Careful" is a total chick song - who hasn't felt so vulnerable when in love. The mournful tune "Rain" breaks my heart while Patty's voice soars. "Tomorrow Night" puts most broken-hearted lounge singers to shame. "Chief" boasts a Dave-Matthews style tempo change as it ruminates on the dreamer in us all. Patty, with the voice from heaven, has crafted one of her finest albums yet!
