Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While the hype machine forever proclaims this or that new artist to be "unique," "original," or "a fresh new voice," most of the time what you hear is more of the same old, same old. Thus, it is a rare joy to hear a newcomer that actually qualifies as all of the above. Mindy Smith fits loosely in the alt-country genre but adds some distinctive touches that set her apart from the field. A residency in Nashville brings a welcome Music Row level of craftsmanship to the playing and production, while her singing and songwriting take the music to places where cliché has never been. A song like "Hurricane" has a hook Faith Hill would kill for, but tells a tale of rebirth that might prove a little raw for her emotional range. Like Julie Miller, Smith writes songs that deal with redemption and spiritual matters in a way that is powerful without being off-putting to the more secular among us. Likewise she can write about her stepmother's passing in terms general enough to make it a stirring ode to the loss of any love--and do it in a voice that could make a statue misty. Smith more than held her own on the Dolly Parton tribute, Just Because I'm a Woman, alongside the likes of Alison Krauss, Norah Jones, and Dolly herself. One Moment More proves that it was no fluke. This time believe the hype. --Michael Ross

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut CD February 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard of Mindy Smith when I saw the video "Jolene" on a country music station while flipping through the channels on TV one night. The song hooked me with the smooth vocals and haunting sound. Mindy Smith has a wonderful voice and this, her first album, is much more folksy than country. The lyrics are all straight forward, and her subjects are of a wide enough range that you're likely to find at least a few that you can personally relate to your own life.
An overview of the songs:
Come to Jesus - I'm not a religious person, though I do have a spiritual side. This song still hits me in a personal place even with the religious overtones. Mindy Smith does a good job pulling it off without it sounding preachy at all. A smooth song that will make you feel watched over. It's one of my favorites off of the album.
Falling - This was the second song I ever heard by Mindy Smith, which I heard months ago on her website. A soft, sweet song about how love pulls you in from your troubles.
Raggedy Ann - Another slow melodic song, this one holds more of a sad tone than the others. "I'm just a little girl / I'm Raggedy Ann / making believe I'm happy." A song about feeling unnoticed and lonely.
Fighting For It All - This song picks up the pace. The title tells all - it focuses on fighting for the things you want, and the upbeat tempo of the song mirrors the purpose well.
Train Song - A folksy ballad about a lover waiting for a train to bring her man back. "I'm just wondering / I need to ask / is my sweet man on that train?" You can hear the worry in Mindy's voice at the possibility that her lover might choose not to return.
It's Amazing - A light, happy love song about how love has changed her for the better and set her free.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best of 2004 February 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is truly a fantastic cd! I picked up this cd after hearing her perform live and it was immediately accesible. But the more I have played it, the more I love each and every song. There is simply not a lame song on the entire disc. Her voice is quite similar to Patty Griffin, and while comparisons are inevitable, she is no tag-along. She has already developed her own unique sound and style as a songwriter.

I have laughed at some of the other reviewers comments about the opening track "Come to Jesus." One said Mindy was "flakking for Jesus." I am not quite sure what that means, other than that the reviewer needs to get over his religious insecurities, but if her struggles through faith and death are flakking for Jesus then okay. Can a songwriter not honestly wrestle through her doubts and beliefs in an artistic way and not be lambasted by mentioning Jesus positively? Undefined spirituality it seems is fine as long as there is no real content to a person's faith, but as soon as any suggestion is made that Jesus might actually mean something definitive to someone then they are written off as some kind of back-door evangelist. This simply doesn't grasp the depth of Mindy Smith's poetry and unfairly creates a small box of lyrical content from which to choose. If you have seen Mindy Smith live, you will learn that she is certainly not attempting to convert anyone, but in my opinion, helping them think and investigate.

Anyway, purchase this disc (ven though it does mention Jesus!) And then see her perform live!

5.0 out of 5 stars A FEAST FOR THE EARS February 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Wow!
"One Moment More" is a cd of songs about feelings--in the best sense of that word--as opposed to plots or stories (Dolly's "Jolene," of course, being the exception). Mindy's young and sounds young--again in the best sense of that word. She makes these feelings hit home strongly due to her absolutely amazing voice. It just carries one away.

It's also a quiet album. Lots of silence against which her voice soars. Listen to how often things get very quiet--this makes you listen to her even when she's singing softly. Beautiful arrangements--lovely acoustic guitar and mandolin work. Even the songs with prominent electric guitar have very interesting instrumentation.

Much of the emotional power of her voice comes from the way she sings certain phrases at certain times. Quite amazing. "we're falling" and "you went straight for my heart" from "Falling." The repeated "hey" in "Raggedy Ann." The way her voice goes sinkingly down in the verses of "Fighting for it All" and then soars back up in the choruses. The way she phrases the questions ("is my sweet man on that train?") at the end of each verse of "Train Song." The lovely sound of "over us" and ""running out of love" in the chorus of "Angel Doves." The conversational but heart-wrenching delivery of "little things that seem to be getting to me today" and "I'm doing what I can not to be getting down while I'm going down in flames" from "Down in Flames." The way she sings the words "only way" in the choruses of "Hurricane" and, especially, the very emotional final line, "no there's no sign of you anywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a Superstar!
I can count on one hand the number of cd's I have heard and I love every song on it. This is definitely one of them. Can't play it enough.

This song :One Moment More is very good. The rest of the album is O.K. but not what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of "Jolene." Ever.
This is by far the best performance of "Jolene" that I've ever heard. It was always Dolly Parton's song, and that was good - for its time - but this is so much stronger. Read more

It sounds like modern alternative country music. awsome. Instead of listening to the same old boring country music, try this for a change.

Just a beautiful voice that seems effortless for her. The music is simple, heartfelt, human. The only complaint is that it's too short.
