Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Vamping blues, back-street rock & roll, Irish whistle folk, slick new country, and gospel praising both body and soul: for their sixth album, Annie, Jeannie, and Marie Burns continue melding their charming harmonies with perky, adult, feminist rock. Out of the Blue is their most musically catchy and accomplished recording; it's also their most lyrically forgettable. Marie and Annie write songs about relationships, whether broken or enduring, but rarely transcend prefabricated pop sentiments. Cliches are tacked together--"For your love, I'd climb the mountain / For your love, I'll swim the sea" and "Stand up for what you believe / To yourself be true"--which might be forgivable if the writers weren't so laboriously earnest. Humor nearly saves the Earth-mother preaching of "God Made Woman" and the fun country fluff of "Two Step Recipe," but Out of the Blue rarely makes it out of the commonplace. --Roy Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars Burns Sisters deliver Something Real July 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Their uncanny ability to master many musical styles has been honed to its finest on this album. Annie, Jeannie and Marie tell their stories through folk, country, bluegrass, pop, blues and gospel tunes. Yet their signature three-part harmony and rotating lead vocals keeps them sounding unmistakeably original.
The album starts with the tongue-in-cheek pop anthem "God Made Woman". This has been a crowd-pleaser at their concerts for over a year, and it's wonderful to finally have it available on CD. I laughed out loud the first time I heard it, and I bet you'll at least smile. The CD ends with the a capella "Prayer of St. Francis" which gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it.
In between, the Sisters deal with the search for meaning ("Something Real"), rising above misfortune ("Bedrock") but most of all, real love: the sweetest love, the wished-for love, the lost love, the forbidden love, the love that might have been, the love that ruins everything, and the "let's get away from the kids and go out dancing love". Every one of these songs touches a place in my heart that still yearns, burns or aches.
If there's a roadblock in the way of their success, it could be their versatility. You can't pin them down to a single style or label. I think this has been what's kept their following to a small base of fiercely loyal fans. Too bad. If any band deserves to be famous, it's the Burns Sisters.
Yet there's no hint of bitterness here. Perhaps Marie's "Bedrock" best sums up their attitude: "life can be rough, but I can be tough... I keep my eyes on the sunny side". They've kept their energy positive, making beautfiul music since the mid-80's. Out Of The Blue is their most impressive recording yet. If you give it a spin it will live in your CD player for weeks and weeks.

Out of the Blue" was the FIRST CD of the Burns Sisters I acquired for my music library after seeing them for the first time at the Club Passim in Cambridge, MA. Since then, I have actually worked backwards, with the exception of their recent solo releases, in adding ALL of their CD's to my collection. With them for me, it is musically, a NEVER ENDING STORY.
This continues to be my VERY FAVORITE of their releases, and I think their very best, indeed. This summer is three years since I first saw them at Club Passim, and I'm still as in love with and as in awe of them as performers and as three wonderful ladies as I was that first night.
There's a touch of rock n'roll, a bit of blue grass, gentle love ballads, and a vein of pure folk running through the fabric of these tunes. It is rockin' n' rolicking, tender and sweet, and a most haunting patchwork quilt of music.
"God Made Woman" and "Bedrock" kick some solid and serious folky [tush] out there for digesting, particularly Jeannie Burns' powerful, bluesy and torchy moments, with Marie and Annie providing a back-up that is equally as energetic.
"Longtime", "With I Never Met You," "Something Real" and "Out of the Blue" pull at the heartstrings. These songs tell of the many facets of love, the title song in particular being so beautiful anyone would want to claim it for their very own love song.
My very favorite on the whole CD is "The Prayer of St.
Francis", written by none other than Saint Francis of Assissi, the Catholic patron saint of animals and ecology, and was set to music by someone in the mid 16th century A.D. It is powerful, yet gentle, simple yet complex, and is rendered hauntingly and exquisitely by a blend of three of the most beautiful voices on the planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! FANTASTIC!!!!! September 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite album of this group to date. Always hard to categorize, the music of the Burns Sisters is full of beautiful harmonies, at times soul-searching, at times rockin' and funny. "When God Made a Woman" is hilarious, and shows their sense of humor. "Prayer of St. Francis" is deeply touching. I love the way the sisters' vocals complement each other so perfectly, and their three-part harmonies twine in and out of each other so beautifully. Crosby Stills and Nash had nothing on these women!
Go Burns Sisters! We LOVED this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful harmonies and beautiful vocals! August 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Out Of The Blue represents a Burns Sisters compilation with two distinct deliveries. Annie uses her strong vocals to create lively arrangements with a kick. Bedrock and Two Step Recipe stand out among the selections in this category. Marie's gentle lead vocals are surrounded by sweet harmonies that attract me with purity and honesty. She melodically carries the listener through love ballads that touch the heart -- I Love You Anyway, For Your Love, Out Of The Blue and Wish I Never Met You. The hauntingly beautiful rendition of Prayer Of St. Francis will echo through your soul long after the music stops. This CD will grow on you with repeated listenings.
