Jim Farber (NY Daily News) gave this album a 5 Star review - quite a while since I have seen any reputable critic (IMO) do that, so I thought I would fork over the 'readies' and check this out. Generally I will avoid albums that are mostly covers of other artists works but, when I saw who she had taken on (The Jayhawks, Pink Floyd, Jeff Buckley, Ben Harper, etc), my interest was increased. Love the whole thing - especially 'Lover, you should've come over'. She has a great feel for her subject matter - reminds me in a way of Joan Osborne(not vocally) when she is motivated on certain albums - shades of early Jackson Browne come to mind also. Excellent album stylistically, great backing musicians, one definitely that will only get even better with repeat listenings.
On a side note - I have to agree with another reviewer who has written about the 'haters'! If you don't like her politics, find another website to vent your spleen!

At the heart of it, this is a beautiful soulful, rocking album of love songs. It's introspective and extraspective. Natalie Maines delivers heartfelt performances of each song. The songs themselves are beautifully written and you fall deeper in love with them with each listen. Though a lot of people associate Maines with the opinion she offered about the George W. Bush and his Iraq War, she is first and foremost a serious artist and this recording is the perfect exhibit of that fact.

Natalie Maines has an absolutely amazing voice and she has sung her heart out on this CD. The songs she's selected are wonderful making this CD truly shine. A wonderful effort and a truly wonderful CD.

I came here with the intentions of buying this album straight out, without listening, because I am such a fan of Natalie Maines' voice, but after reading somewhat mixed reviews I decided to go listen to the full album on NPR before buying. Well, I listened and...I really like it. I think, as with anything, it is a matter of personal preference. I normally listen to rock and blues and am not a big country music fan but there are some country artists I like, the Dixie Chicks being one of my favorites. The only track I am not quite sure about is the title track, Mother. It was just ok for me. Her vocals were great, but I cannot help but compare to the original, no matter how much I tried, and maybe that is why I am just not feeling it. A lot of the other reviewers dissed Silver Bell, but it was one of my favorites (again personal preference), and I think this one could play well on radio along with Trained and Come Cryin' to Me. I think those who didn't care for this album must be more country inclined and expected that to be here. There is still a lot of country in these tracks though, especially on I'd Run Away. In the end I think her beautiful voice still comes through and I hope this gets the air play it deserves.

Miss you so much Natalie! Too bad the country fans turned on you. I guess people interprete anything they want it to mean for themselves. You and the Chicks are still the BEST! I recommend this CD if you love Natalie's voice.

I have loved the Dixie Chicks for years, so when Natalie Maines took a 7 year break, understandably, her beautiful and soulful voice was sorely missed. Her vocals have always cut right thru me...to my heart. A sad song sung by her made tear up, an upbeat one, filled me with joy. This album is no exception. I love hearing the new Natalie, appreciating where she is now in her music career and looking forward to new music. To say I don't miss Martie and Emily would be a lie...their vocals and amazing music was magical when they were together as the Dixie Chicks. But as Natalie has moved on, so have I when I listen to "Mother." Each one of us have had experiences since 2003 that has changed us in some way. This album reflects how Natalie has changed in a very brave and interesting way. The only thing that I am slightly having a hard time getting used to is the 'Beatle' influence in the music. The steel guitar (?), I believe played by Ben Harper, is reminiscent of the Beatles' guitar sound, and in my opinion, is grating since I have never been a Beatle's fan. This is a minor thing and probably liked by most fans. Best of luck and success to her on this new album.
