Editorial Reviews

Born in LA in 1964, and having released two albums with Lone Justice, this is Maria McKee's first solo album. Released in 1989, and recorded in Hollywood, Dublin and London, nine of the eleven tracks were written solely by Maria. A tenth ('More Than a Heart Can Hold') was co-written with Robbie Robertson. Featuring, among other things, a Hammond organ and strings, the best description is country-rock with a slight bluesy twinge. Out-of-print in the US. Universal. 2005.

Her voice is much softer and introspective.

It's sort of country, sort of rock, sort of soul, sort of rhythm and blues, sort of bluesy, sort of ... Buy it anyway.

Three years after Lone Justice's second and last album, Shelter, lead singer Maria McKee stepped out on her own with her eponymous debut. She adds some more country tinge on some of her rootsy guitar sound, and still has that husky rock-country voice that is lilting soft on one hand, goes into an emotional crescendo the next, and even into a quasi-yodeling mode at times.
"I've Forgotten What It Was In You" veers towards country and features some nice strings. A very good opening song that sets her new material from the old.
There's a Bruce Hornsby-Dylanesque feel in "To Miss Someone", in which she plays a fragile, lonely woman going through the aftermath of an affair. "Nothing fits and everything feels wrong/I guess it's useless to deny it/I'll admit I've been crying/Guess I'm not so independent after all" she says in one verse.
OK, the moment I've been waiting for. Maria here was the originator of the wry "Am I The Only One (Who's Ever Felt This Way) a full decade before the Dixie Chicks did it on their Wide Open Spaces album. When I heard it, I thought, "Hang on a minute, I know that song!" It's country-tinged like the remake but emotionally, Maria's original is more convincing, especially when she speaks of "a wound inside of me/...bleeding like a flood."
"Nobody's Child" features her lilting and lovely highest range. This might as well be the "Bridge Over Troubled Water" on this album, a sad ballad of comfort: "Take this veil/and I'll dry your eyes/In a world like ours/you're nobody's child.

The woman can take you off-planet with her voice, write songs that drip with atmosphere and heart, and even make 'distressed roots' producer Mitchell Froom behave himself so that the focus here is on putting each song in a damn near perfect setting and performance.
Doesn't hurt that Brit guitar god Richard Thompson is laying down textbook tasty licks and heart-arcing solos all over the place (try 'Breathe' and 'This Property Is Condemned' for examples). Organist (Paul?) Brody shows how it should be done with his inventive and evocative textures. There aren't many albums I've heard where it all comes together better than here.
If you've heard the Dixie Chicks cover of Maria's 'Am I The Only One (Who's Ever Felt This Way)' buy this album to check out the real thing, in every sense.

Maria McKee is easily the most overlooked female singer in music history. Quite a claim! I know, but I challenge you to find a stronger voice after, say, Aretha Franklin. There is simply no better country singer on the planet - not Loretta Lynn, not Tammy Wynette, none of the moderns - forget the Dixie Chicks, and Neko Case, as glorious as she can be, cannot begin to approach the tortured angelic ecstasy that pours out from Maria's voice. She leaves everyone else in the dust. Listen to Panic Beach off this record and experience four minutes of rapture. If you're still in one piece, try More than a Heart Can Hold for the best country gospel you're ever likely to hear! So uplifting, it's a religious experience... every time I listen I want to dissolve myself in her breath and spirit.

Born in LA in 1964, and having released two albums with Lone Justice, this is Maria McKee's first solo album. Released in 1989, and recorded in Hollywood, Dublin and London, nine of the eleven tracks were written solely by Maria. A tenth ("More Than a Heart Can Hold") was co-written with Robbie Robertson. Featuring, among other things, a Hammond organ and strings, the best description is country-rock with a slight bluesy twinge.

The album gets off to a great start with "I've Forgotten What It Was In You (That Put The Need In Me)". Despite the title, it's quite an up-tempo number that sees Maria fairly belting out the vocals. She puts in a similar performance on "This Property is Condemned", which also features a moody bassline and rock-n-roll-esque guitars. However, it's "Panic Beach" - another of the album's livelier songs - that I'd pick as the best track. It has a great tune, great lyrics and could easily have been subtitled "When Showbiz Goes Wrong". Sometimes, it does you good to hear a song like this !

There are a couple of more gentle songs on the album - "Has He Got a Friend For Me ?", the only song that doesn't see Maria with a writing credit, is a very good example. She also gives her backing band its only break for this track, and accompanies herself on the piano. Two of the songs that were released as singles also stand out : "To Miss Someone" shows just what a nice voice Maria has, while "Breathe" is one of the few songs where things actually seem to be working out !

There simply isn't a bad song on this album, and I can't understand why Maria McKee didn't become a huge success. She has a voice that can convey the mood of a song perfectly - hurt, need, calm or just generally fed up ! Highly recommended !
