Editorial Reviews

Review

Mullins displays Beck-like range, spiking earthy music with modern sparks. But his greatest gift is gab, as evidenced in spell-binding yarns like "Gulf of Mexico" and "Twin Rocks." -- USA Today

5.0 out of 5 stars The best cd I have bought in a long time December 31, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love music and it very rare that something grabs me as this cd did. From the opening noteit is pure lisenting pleasure. My favroite cuts are twin rocks orgean and Billy Joe McKay. Mullins tells a story as someone twice his age.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sexiest album of the year -- by far! December 13, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although the radio stations have been playing Lullaby off Soul's Core over and over and over -- I never get sick of it. Like Lullaby, all of the songs on this album reach deep into your heart and soul; everyone can relate to something on this album. And Mullins himself has a voice and a style that has not failed to melt my heart. I haven't found anyone who disagrees that it's he's the sexiest artist around.

5.0 out of 5 stars a heartfelt, emotional album by a gifted songwriter November 21, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Shawn Mullins' first major-label release, "Soul's Core", drew me in from the first song, and never let go. The power of his rich, soulful voice, backed up by only his guitar and the occasional accompaniment of other instruments, combine to create a beautiful backdrop for his honest, emotional lyrics. From the forlorn romanticism of the first track, "Anchored in You" to the hopeful, inspiring "Shimmer", this CD is a must-have for anyone has ever loved or been hurt.

My friend's Grandma died and her little brother heard this song and the words "everything is gonna be all right, rocka-bye, rocka-bye" made him remember his Grandma, and now he does not stop playing the C.D., and since I have bought it I cry whenever I hear it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Folk-Rock Album Of the Year November 5, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I buy a lot of music. A lot of it is OK. This album, though, is my favorite album of the year. I saw Mullins open for the Indigo Girls at Dartmouth College early in 1998, and he was one of the best opening bands I've ever seen. "Soul's Core" is a very deserving album: "Lullaby" is an awesome song, but the struggling folksinger is still alive and well in Mullins. "Twin Rocks, Oregon" is a great, honest song; "Gulf of Mexico" is a solemn recount of a regretful life (reminiscent of Bob Seger's "The Ring"). And I dare you not to be hooked by the explosive ending of "And on a Rainy Night" or the catchy "September in Seattle." Recommendation: Strong buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it from the first play through November 3, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Rarely do I buy a CD after hearing just one track, but I was mesmorized by Lullabye and it's accompaning video on VH-1. Then I heard a couple quick clips on the internet through his website and bought the CD. It is soooooo good. I have turned on a dozen friends to this cd and am today ordering "Eggshells" from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars You should know why I gave it five stars! October 31, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Shawn Mullins has turned a new leaf with "Soul's Core", and I know many people including myself that have been deeply moved by "Lullaby", just one of the many great songs by Shawn Mullins. "Shimmer" bought a lot to think about as well. Thank you, listeners and thank you, Shawn.

I loved the CD. The only down was that after the first two songs, it slowed down a lot. But the more I listened to it, the more I found the orgin of the songs and what he was trying to say. It relates to anyone with a half empty heart and all lonely people. I highly recommend it.
