Editorial Reviews

The Wild Strawberries are a band largely driven by the husband and wife duo of Ken Harrison (keyboardist / songwriter) and Roberta Carter Harrison (vocals).

The sultry voice of Roberta Carter Harrison has an authority and strength that enables it to float along on its own melody through the album's labyrinth of sound. On the up-tempo tracks, Roberta's smoky voice commands that you follow her every word, seducing the listener like a femme fatale in a black and white movie. Roberta's signature vocals drift along the haunting waves of Wild Strawberries' heart-achingly beautiful ballads, proving that sometimes a delicate whisper is more powerful than a deafening scream.

The previous releases by the Wild Strawberries have mapped their gradual progression from radio-friendly innocence (Grace, Bet You Think I'm Lonely) to the gold selling anthem-filled Heroine.

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

the first time i heard of the wild strawberries was when i heard the song 'i don't want to think about it' on the foxfire soundtrack. it was a great song, so i decided to get the cd, hoping there were a few other good songs on the album. heroine turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. i found that as much as i loved the first track, it was way down on my list of favorites from the cd. heroine is one of those rare cds that i can listen to without wanting to skip a single track. the title track is great, and the true gem on this cd is the haunting 'everybody loves you when you're dead' which keeps you thinking long after you've finished listening to the cd. combined, the richness of the music, the poetic lyrics, and her beautiful accent make this a must have for any collection... i'd bet that long after i've sold my other cds from the time period, i'll still be listening to heroine.

An excellent album from Canadian couple Ken and Roberta Harrison. Roberta's voice is very dreamy in the Margot Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) style. Ken plays a variety of instruments on this album, including piano, organ, and guitars, plus he wrote all the songs. On the first 2 tracks Sarah McLachlan plays guitars, and on various tracks Ashwin Sood (Sarah's husband) plays the drums and other instruments. This is a dreamy album...synth rock/pop at its best. The booklet contains all lyrics.

Both this album and Quiver are excellent. The instrumention, sound and mix are something like Bjork - modern, clever, sophisticated - but where Bjork would go operatic, the Wild Strawberries have gone '60s black-girl electro-pop. A lot of quirky character in the music and a lot of fun. A truly great electro-pop band.

Saw the Wild Strawberries at Lilith Fair in Vanc,BC last August 98. Although I was not familiar with the band-I loved their performance and their music was so unique and melodious. The lyrics are great. Any friend I've lent the CD to buys their own because it becomes one of their faves too.Favorite song: "Heroine" but all the songs are great!
