Editorial Reviews

Carrie's sophomore release, She Ain't Me, still showcases her intimate croon, but this classically trained singer/songwriter has just begun flexing her artistic muscles. She Ain't Me is an expectation-confounding statement from Carrie, who notes, "Because I took some chances, wrote with some new people and actually co-wrote most of the songs on the album, it's very different." For She Ain't Me, the Austin-born, Berklee-trained violinist-turned-fiddler teamed with producer Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Kaki King) and wrote with Gary Louris of the Jayhawks, as well as Mary Gauthier, Dan Wilson, and Jim Boquist. The album also features a guest vocal appearance by Lucinda Williams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rodriguez delivers August 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In her second solo album Carrie Rodriguez leaves her fruitful partnership with songwriter Chip Taylor further behind. Most of the songs are at least partly hers: she collaborates with a group of talented co-writers and is backed up by a really great band, led by guitarist Hans Holzen, that forms a perfect foil for her distinctively smoky voice. The total sound, overseen by veteran producer Malcolm Burn, covers both pop and country territory but is all of a piece, avoiding the slightly overproduced feel of her first solo outing, "Seven Angels on a Bicycle."

Whether laying down the political gauntlet in "Infinite Night" and "Mask of Moses," or mulling over love's sorrows in "Rag Doll" and "Can't Cry Enough," or getting down with some gritty fiddle playing in "Absence" (too bad there isn't more on this album) Rodriguez delivers unforced, sincere emotion, even when her different vocal registers aren't perfectly in sync (high notes tend to be little more than whispers). The title track is a knowing, sassy take on the old "cheating song" theme that could well be delivered by the likes of Dolly Parton. It has an agreeable way of getting stuck in one's head that suggests it could get lots of airplay. I've listened to all of this artist's albums from the beginning and eagerly look forward to more.

3.0 out of 5 stars making a sow's ear of a silk purse August 16, 2008
By GWS
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In fairness I've only listened through a couple of times but I'm sorely disappointed in the effort. Carrie Rodriguez is a remarkable talent who has thrived in her partnership with Chip Taylor. What worked so well for and between them was at least in part his ear for a good tune and his world-weariness that cast the perfect backdrop for her to shine. She was always able to present herself as a quite plausible peer among an ever-so-slightly rough crowd of seasoned rowdies. The feeling that everything was sort of thrown together on the spot out of pure raw talent and experience worked well to showcase her multiple talents.

This album, on the other hand, is pure marketing. From the dolled-up photos to the way-overproduced feel, this is all wrong. (Interestingly, Gracenote has it classified as "Pop.") It really sounds to me like some kind of mutant packaging project where the idea was to try to force her into clones of songs by one each of a dozen recognizable and highly marketable girl singers. It doesn't work.

I don't mean to say she is nothing without Chip Taylor. Far from it. She is exceptionally talented. But I do mean that Chip Taylor has clearly played a crucial role in clearing the space to let her work shine. If she's going to flourish without him she's going to have to find enough spine to follow her art and ditch the marketing team that is serving her so poorly. Unless, of course, I've got it wrong and the gig with Chip Taylor was just to pay the bills and she was merely the best actress ever pretending to be into all that while she waited for her big chance to step out and make some pap under her own name.

Look, she's a terrific musician who can also turn a phrase with that delicious twang of hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rising Star - Long Overdue October 26, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Heard/saw this fine singer for the first time last night on Austin City Limits - I stopped watching The World Series game three to experience her!! Now I can't get enough of her!!!
Bought tickets to see her at the Arden, Delaware Gild Hall on Dec. 6 (2008). I can't believe the tickets were only $19.00 each!!
I haven't been this excited about an artist since Alison Krauss - and Carrie writes much of her material, too. This album showcases both her writing and vocal talents! I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars instant favorite August 5, 2008
By liz
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is fresh, inventive and well crafted. Stylistically it ranges from folk to rock to infectious bluegrass but maintains continuity. The lyrics are unusual, often catchy, and they resonate. There is some nice fiddle on several of the tracks. Absence is one of the best, reminiscent of Alison Krauss and Union Station. Other songs like Grace and Infinite Night remind me of Jonatha Brooke. However, Carrie Rodriguez really has her own sound that is indefinable and very appealing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Come Home to Americana! January 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is competent pop music, but it lacks the fire and musicianship of "Seven Angels on a Bicycle" and her duets with Chip Taylor. She can really bring it on the fiddle, but you'd hardly know it from this album. It sounds more L.A. than Austin. One of alt-country's most talented singer/fiddler/stompers has suddenly turned bland on us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another step up for Carrie! September 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This record should be one of the better ones of this year. Carrie's first album, "Seven Angels On A Bicycle" was a real treat and this one just expands her artistry. Always a great fiddle player, she has now progressed to playing mando-bird (electric mandolin) and tenor guitar. Her singing is also getting better; and she is writing more songs. On this record she co-wrote with the likes of Gary Louris, Mary Gautier, Dan Wilson, Jim Boquist & Leslie Nail. The production by Malcolm Burn is excellent. Carrie uses her own band on most of the songs, and they are augmented by Richie Stearns (Banjo), the great Greg Leisz (pedal steel, lap steel and guitars) Malcolm Burn (keyboards & guitar). Lucinda Williams sings on "Mask Of Moses" and Aoife O'Donovan sings on two songs. The record as a whole really fits together. Some of my favorite songs are: "Infinite Night", written with Louris who also sings backup, "She Ain't Me", "Rag Doll", a song written by Sandrine and beautifully sung by Carrie. Also "Mask Of Moses", "Grace", and "El Dorado".
I think the record will appeal to a wide range of listeners. Especially if you like Emmylou Harris & Lucinda Williams.
