Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Thanks to this 1986 disc, her full-length debut, Maryland-born but Massachusetts-based Cheryl Wheeler burst on the singer-songwriter scene in a big way. Produced by Jonathon Edwards, for whom she once played bass, this robust offering features a full band and outright rock tunes such as "Lethal Detective" (with a screaming electric-guitar solo by John Jennings) that will scare or amuse fans of her ensuing solo-oriented work. Filled with new-wavy accents like cheesy keyboards and radio-ready multitracked vocals, this disc is rescued to a degree by first-class songs, including "Addicted" (which was a No. 1 country hit for Dan Seals), "Behind the Barn," and "Arrow." Listen for Mary Chapin Carpenter singing background vocals. --Robert Baird

This was my first introduction to Cheryl Wheeler. I heard Tom Rush do "Quarter Moon" in concert and found this album in a music catalog from a small music company called "Hear" Music. You'll recognize "Addicted" if you're a country music fan. I enjoyed her music so much, I've purchased all of her CD's. She's an amazing writer with a great sense of humor and a hauntingly beautiful voice.

Among the too numerous to mention singer/songwriters, Cheryl Wheeler's music stands out for its intelligence, witty lyrics, great melodies, and fine vocal performances. Whether she is doing a poignant love song, a traditional folk song, or one of her incomparable humor songs, everything about this artist is first-rate. I own all of her CDs and this one is among my favorites. Highly recommended for any Cheryl Wheeler fan.

I was introduced to Wheeler's music some years ago, and recently decided that I wanted to have all of her CDs....so I was happy to find this one. All of her music is good, I can't say more than that

If you love Cheryl Wheeler music, you'll likely be disappointed with this album. This is her first album to get relatively wide distribution, and it doesn't contain the style and songs or wonderful lyrics she is known for. There are a few good songs, such as Behind the Barn, Quarter Moon and Paradise in troubled Waters,but the rest disappoint. If you are a major fan you'll want it for your collection, but this is not quintessential Wheeler by a wide margin.
