Editorial Reviews

2010 debut album from the Nashville-born singer. Caitlin appeared amidst a whirlwind of praise at the start of the year with her stunning first offering, the critically acclaimed Dead Flowers EP. Produced by Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Will Oldham and Andrew Bird) at the Beech House in Nashville, Own Side Now is sheer perfection, drawing further on her love for the female greats such as Linda Ronstadt and Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac's 'That's Alright' gets a delightful airing here) as well as those from a pure Country lineage such as Patsy Cline, and firmly places her in the same league. Dead Flowers showed the budding of a ripe talent, but this time around she has a seriously talented full band to assist in elevating Own Side Now into a different class. Names.

Her mother Liz has a Song of the Year Grammy to her credit ("You Belong With Me", written with Taylor Swift for Swift's 2009 album FEARLESS), and her father Johnny is a veteran of the Nashville music scene. So one might expect that OWN SIDE NOW, the official feature-length CD debut of 23 year-old Nashville songstress Caitlin Rose, would sound like almost anything from the Taylor Swift/Carrie Underwood school of inoffensive and conservative country radio, especially since Caitlin is only two and a half years older than Swift.

But expectations are meant to be challenged; and so it is with this CD, thanks in part to her parents' having schooled her in the fine art of classic country, 1950s rockabilly, and 1970s West Coast country-rock. Caitlin has a voice that is as young and developing as she is, but she also has a songwriting gift that shows her to be wise beyond her years. With the sole exception of "That's Alright", a countryish cover of a song from Fleetwood Mac's 1987 album MIRAGE, everything on OWN SIDE NOW is either solely written or co-written by Caitlin. She takes more than a few pointers from Patsy Cline on songs like "New York" and "Shanghai Cigarettes", a little bit from Sun Records-era Elvis on "Coming Up" and "Spare Me", and 1950s pop on "For The Rabbits." And on other songs, like the title track and "Sinful Wishing Well", she channels the acoustic-influenced country-rock of her biggest avowed influence Linda Ronstadt (astounding in and of itself, since she is four decades younger than Linda). Caitlin, however, does right by herself by not being slavishly imitative of what she has been influenced by, and just being authentically herself (as Linda herself once said, "You don't have to be original, just authentic").

Caitlin Rose is the daughter of Liz Rose, the Nashville songwriter who collaborated with Taylor Swift on one or two of her award-winners. Thus, at first glance, one might be led to think that the CD here under consideration would be full of pure Swift-style Nashville commercial pop fluff from a little diva who jet-sets around like Swift does, churning out songs about the latest pretty boy she's broken up with--but absolutely nothing could be further from the truth. Not that Caitlin Rose's sound isn't pure Nashville, because it is: it's just the Nashville sound and aura of a bygone era, a good deal more elemental and rough around the edges than anything a twenty-first century pop diva would be expected to come up with. Think of Patsy Cline just starting out her singing career at a honky-tonk. Even the hardest-rocking track on the CD, "Shanghai Cigarettes," has more of a country soul and feel to it than most of the stuff you hear on CMT. If this is the future of country music, I'm looking forward to hearing more of it.

My attention was grabbed upon listening to Caitlin Rose on World Cafe Live on WXPN (all you Philly area people take note). I heard several songs played acoustic along with the oddball interview. Within a week or so I listened to Own Side Now and I have to say that I am mightily impressed.

I have to say I am very picky when it comes to country. Johnny Cash. Waylon Jennings. Bonnie Raitt. Lucinda Williams. Doc Watson. That is basically what I am into for the most part. I am always very disappointed with whatever is current in country because whatever it is, it usually really stinks to high heaven. Let me tell you this: Own Side Now is what pop country should be! This stuff is great! The music AND the lyrics. Caitlin Rose has put together a very nice collection of tunes here.

My standout favorites right now include: "Own Side", "New York", the Stevie Nicks cover "That's Alright", "Coming Up" and "Spare Me (Fetzer's Blues)". "Spare Me" includes my favorite lyric from the album right now: "And love is just one more useless thing you don't need but you can't throw away".

The best I can explain this album is that it is smart country-pop. I don't know what that means, but that is what I am calling it. The music (which is most important to me) will satisfy greatly, as well as the lyrical moments. Caitlin's voice is the best I've heard in a while. It grabs me like Madeleine Peyroux's voice did several years back. These days, people are telling me about Adele. I am impressed with her voice, but the songs, well - ehhh - not so memorable. She will likely be forgotten. Caitlin Rose, however has a promising future ahead. Lend Own Side Now your ears.

I heard a 5-year old girl sing Own Side Now on Youtube and really loved the song so I purchased this album. I read some great reviews about this singer so thought I'd give this a try. I really don't like her voice or delivery. Much better presentation by the 5-year old. Rowan is her name if you want to hear her. She's pretty incredible.

You know what I mean by "PIXIES"------THE SHINS, OF MONSTERS AND MEN, THE CRANBERRIES. CAITLIN ROSE is NOT of THAT CLASSIFICATION. This CD presents a variety of her music, all good in every way. I'd like her to do a foot stomping, hard driving live recorded COUNTRY ROCK CD, like the tune "SHANGHAI CIGARETTES"
