"Rich from the Journey" needs time to be absorbed. At first listen, expecting something like "West Texas Heaven" I was a bit stunned to find it was nothing like it.
However, the tunes are really catchy, (I found myself humming them inadvertently after no time) and the songs are intelligent and uplifting. If you want sad songs, don't listen to this CD.
This CD is rather more "pop" than her previous recordings, but very beautiful, if you are prepared to open your hearts and souls to the songs.
My favorite tracks are "Shine All Your Light" (a positively scintillating song) and the beautiful duet Kimmie performs with Gillian Welch on "God's Acre"
There isn't a bad song on the whole CD, it's all fabulous.
And of course Kimmie's exquisite voice is really shown to advantage in this little jewel box of a CD.

I'm lucky, I didn't have any preconceived notions of Kimmie Rhodes. I have fairly broad tastes in music, as well. My tastes run from harp, folk, classic country, English folk, and classical, to punk, heavy metal, British Invasion, and especially alt.country. I wasn't stuck in some shallow Nashville rut and unable to grow with a gifted artist like Kimmie Rhodes. It would be an over-simplification to think of Rich From The Journey as a cross between Nanci Griffith, early Amy Grant, and Enya. Kimmie has far more folk and country. Kimmie's lyrics have far more to offer than the hackneyed lines of Enya's lyricist, Roma Ryan, too. I think the gentle and lovely synthesizer washes are off-putting for those who prefer tired old recycled guitar riffs, steel guitar, and the stale pop/country formula. Those synthesizer washes, in several songs, provide an almost heavenly ambience that is appropriate and gorgeous for those songs. This collection is full of life-affirming positive tunes that never fail to brighten and soothe me. This is one of my most played cds and I selected the title track to be on my own compilation of favorite female vocalists. The duet with Gillian Welch is a delight, there's a Tex-Mex sounding tune, several life-affirming songs with spiritual references, a country/folk train song (This Ol' Train?), and more. This is a modern record by a real ARTIST who has rich and diverse influences, including folk and country. It is uplifting, rewarding, and satisfying. The lyrics are thoughtful, intelligent, and moving. The melodies are distinctive. The instruments are played well and it is well-produced with good sound. Kimmie's gentle but expressive voice is in fine form. This record is suitable for all ages and many tastes.Read more ›

with this album. I had never heard of her before, until one day my husband brought home this CD. The tunes in this collection are melodic, uplifting, and relaxing at the same time. Great to listen to when feeling stressed. It is one of our favorites. I especially enjoy the title track, Rich From the Journey, Espiritu Santo Bay, and I'm So Amazed.

It's important to let go of any cynicism you might have to appreciate this album fully.
I am a fan of Kimmie's previous albums and at first missed the "gutsy rootsiness" present in that earlier work, as this album is musically lighter (though impeccably produced and crafted by Kimmie's son Gabe).
Lyrically though, it is highly advanced and together the songs form a kind of concept album of meditations on life and death, this world and the next.
The sheer positivity of the lyrics form a great recipe for living life and to see the world as Kimmie does in these songs is, in my opinion, truly a way to deep personal happiness.
Kimmie is obviously not a person to be pinned down or categorised into one type of music. I look forward to discovering whatever she comes up with next and shall certainly be using this album as one of my aids to my own personal growth and happiness.

Apparently this 2000 offering was substantially different from Kimmie's earlier efforts. However, since this is my introduction to a delightful singer/songwriter, I have no preconceptions to be dashed. Instead, I find a woman singing about spirituality in a very personal and entrancing way. From the cover & insert photos of Kimmie walking in the water with her guitar, there is a sense of freedom & connection with the beauty of nature. On the high profile track, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings join Kimmie to sing the sweet "God's Acre." Its sweet simple melody & loping beat give an old-timey gospel feel that would be at home on Iris DeMent's "Lifeline" CD, "There is a pathway straight & narrow leading to the golden streams, There is a mansion ready for me in the valley fair & sweet." Produced by her son Gabe Rhodes, "Rich from the Journey" achieves a laid-back feel that harkens as much to San Luis Obispo as it does Kimmie's native Lubbock, Texas. "The Wonderful Sound" has a slow gorgeous melody, "Let your faith resound, make a joyful sound, one wish for peace is all we need to turn our world around today." The set concludes with the chugging "Bells of Joy" that'll set your toe tapping as you throw your arms skyward in praise. My favorite track is "Shine All Your Light" that marries a slow dreamy melody, Kimmie's trembling vocals and an exquisitely uplifting lyric, "Here under Heaven's eyes, down under Paradise, sometimes it seems like we're so small, Here on the shores that reach into infinity, how could we matter much at all? Would it be enough if each of us would give our love?" "I'm So Amazed" is a spiritually fragrant midtempo lighthearted romp that makes me hit the repeat button. "Rich from the Journey" is a satisfying set that deepens the more it saturates the sonic soul. Enjoy!
