Editorial Reviews

Review

Church, like [Rosanne] Cash, can shift effectively from emotional, cerebral tunes to peppy, rhythm-driven material, and [Rodney] Crowell takes full advantage of her versatility. -- People

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Voice, Great Songs July 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard "What's the Matter With You, Baby" on an airplane, and since the program guide on the plane was incorrect, I didn't know who was singing. When I got home, I spent over an hour on the web trying to find out, and I'm glad I did! Claudia Church's voice is clear and beautiful, and the songs are fabulous - you can listen to this album over and over. There are bouncy songs, along with slower ones, like "Home in My Heart (North Carolina)." I especially like the songwriting team of Annie Roboff and Beth Nielsen Chapman who wrote "What's the Matter with You, Baby" (they also wrote, with Robin Lerner, Faith Hill's "This Kiss" and "There Goes My Baby" sung by Trisha Yearwood).

4.0 out of 5 stars Sadly overlooked and underplayed pop country LP June 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
While Church isn't exactly breaking new ground with this debut, she does show how country and pop can be married without losing the benfits of either. Unlike the soundalike hacks that dominate Nashville, Church and producer/husband Rodney Crowell have fashioned an LP that retains the heart and soul of country music while finishing it with the chiming guitars of 60s pop.
The backgrounds inventively mix steel and fiddle with 12-strings and pop harmonies, while the lyrics reach from the Cyndi Lauper-esque "What's the Matter With You Baby," to the beautifully rendered memories of "Home in My Heart (North Carolina)," and "The Streets of Nashville."
"Just As Long As You Love Me" brings to mind Bobby Fuller's galloping hits like "I Fought the Law," and her steel-laden cover of Carole King's "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" may not have the gut-wrenching emotion of the Shirelle's original hit, but it's still a sweet take.
Church is a fine vocalist, sure-footed and strong, and has thoughtfully picked and written material that suits her. It doesn't add up to a watershed LP, but it does demonstrate some fruitful new paths that pop-country could wander. If only Nashville were listening, that is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Claudia Church Gets The Pews Rockin' and Inspired May 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Its not to often I take a chance on an apparent unknown singer. I saw Claudia's video of, "What's The Matter With You Baby" on CMT. My first reaction was where has this singer been hanging out the the last few years? It was great and catchy. I went down to a local Music store and her album cover caught my eye. It looked like the store owner was featuring this new artist. Being a little cynical from being burnt in the past,I didn't immediately get the CD, thinking what if the song I like is the only good song on the album. After a second trip to the music store looking for something else, there it was sitting again in front of the country music section. So I took a chance on this Church woman.I couldn't stop playing it. Every song, and I mean every song was outstanding and seemed to be right from her guts.It became my favourite CD for 1999. Unbelieavable voice, great variety of style, from traditional country to the new country sound. It seemed like the song selection was very carefully chosen. There was a fun sound to them yet a healthy upbeat kind of message came through loud and clear. A new singer who comes across with a lot of substance and conviction. I have lost track of how many of my friends who have gone out to purchase Claudia's album. Of all the albums I've recommened to friends over the years, more have gone out and purchased this one than any other. I've never reviwed a CD before, but felt this one was more than worthy of a few comments from someone who has been converted over by the Church. If "Church's" played music like Claudia Church's they'd be full. I would join her congregation any time. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Country Pop June 30, 1999
Format:Audio CD
It's been said that if the Eagles were breaking today, they'd be considered a country band. Claudia Church walks that line with about two-thirds pop and one-third country. The first single "What's the Matter with You Baby" is bouncy, fun, and catchy. My stereo keeps playing it over and over! Living in the beautiful state of North Carolina, "Home Is In My Heart (North Carolina)" is the best Carolina song since James Taylor. Its simple childlike melody echoes remembrances from the Vietnam era. The only song that I don't care for is "This Man I Love." It's got a catchy tune and melody, but something about a woman needing a man to tell her what she wants portrays a rather unliberated attitude. The remake of Carole King's "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" is a great country-pop version. It's such a good song, that it seems to deserve to be brought back. This is a very smart album. It's done well from the singing, music, and playing. Anyone who likes the Faith Hill-This Kiss kind of country should get Claudia Church!

This CD has a few good tunes on it. I particularly like "Streets of Nashville." Otherwise, it's O.K. but didn't really grab me as a whole. Read more

Church's maiden voyage holds up very well even to todays flock of country-pop songstresses. Whats the Matter With You Babe spawned a good concept video as well. Read more

Too much pop, not enough country. After all of the five star reviews of this cd, I was disappointed. Church offers nothing new or different for country music.
