Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Wreckers are Grammy-winning songstress Michelle Branch and friend/journeywoman Nashville singer-songwriter Jessica Harp, a team whose solid craftsmanship and soaring, airtight harmonies often lift their hook-smart contemporary country stylings above what's too often mere fizzy, pop-crossover formula. They may have entered the public consciousness via the wide exposure of "Good Kind" on the primetime soap opera One Tree Hill, but the bracing, back-porch charms of the single "Leave the Pieces" should find them a following well beyond that series' teen audience. The reflective title track, gritty folk charms of "Tennessee" and giddy crowd-pleaser "My, Oh My" are suffused with a lyrical maturity that's the perfect counterpoint to the duo's sturdy musical constructs. Solid songs all, delivered with a muscular vocal conviction that does considerably more than merely sell them. --Jerry McCulley

Product Description

The Wreckers are about creation, not destruction. Bringing together two young, fearless female singer songwriter- acoustic guitarists Grammyr-winning, platinum-selling Michelle Branch and collaborator Jessica Harp The Wreckers' debut album, Stand Still, Look Pretty, blends Branch's pop-rock sensibility with Harp's country-folk style. Edgy yet rootsy, on Stand Still, Look pretty, The Wreckers have a ball.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like M2M singing Country May 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Okay, you want to know what M2M has in common with The Wreckers ( Michelle Branch & Jessica Harp) right ?

Well, what I always liked about M2M was that the voices would blend so well yet at the same time you could enjoy each distinctly. This is the same great sound that The Wreckers have on their album. (another poster also agrees on this)

This album is one of those that you here once and just know it going to be a favorite. Personally I like Country, so I like the fact that someone like Michelle, who is a singer-songwriter & musician decided to make a country (pop-country) album and not feel obliged to bow down to the MTV mentality.

I went ahead and got the version with the DVD. Apart from the video of the song "Leave the pieces" it also has a making of video. But since this is the first album, the girls also explain how they got together and you see them interact. A great way to get to know them.

Please don't let the "Country" label keep you from enjoying a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A successful change for Michelle Branch May 25, 2006
By Parkin
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of all of Michelle Branch's pop/rock solo albums. I still want another solo album from Michelle, but I can't complain at all about Stand Still, Look Pretty. Largely produced by John Leventhal, the production is polished, but not slick enough to overpower the good musicianship going on here. Michelle and Jessica Harp harmonize very well because of their similar voices. Sometimes it's difficult to tell them apart. The album is quite serious, but ends up with the humorous "Crazy People." Without that song to lighten things up, I would have reduced the CD's rating a bit. Finally, a little of Michelle's pop and folk styles do come through on songs like the title track and "Rain." Great job, Michelle and Jessica!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent debut November 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Michelle Branch carved out a place for herself in the young female pop singer market serveral years ago with a brilliant debut and a successful if derivitive duet with Carlos Santana. This record is her first with friend Jessica Harp. The ladies mine the borderline between the singer/songwriter and country genres for quality songs that should fit well in the americana format.

Highlights include the opening track Leave the Pieces, Way Back Home, The Good Kind, and the title track Stand Still Look Pretty. Of special note is the presence of producer/multi-instrumentalist John Leventhal on many tracks.

I recommend this record for folks who like songs that don't sound like formula country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michelle Branch + Jessica Harp = Amazing June 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After more than a year of waiting, the long-awaited debut album from The Wreckers is finally available.

The Wreckers consists of Michelle Branch, the amazing, widely-known, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter, and Jessica Harp, the equally amazing yet unfortunately not-as-widely-known singer/songwriter of the same vein. In late 2004/early 2005, the two decided to collaborate, and thus, The Wreckers came to be. As The Wreckers, Michelle sheds her pop persona and focuses more on Jess's country stylings, providing a contemporary pop/country mix. Stand Still, Look Pretty is the result.

The album opens with the duo's first single, Leave The Pieces, which is the kind of song you'd hear on a typical modern country radio station. Right away, the music and lyrics prove to the newcomers the amazing talents of Michelle and Jess while giving die-hard fans more of a reason to love them.

Jessica brings The Good Kind, a previously written song of hers, to the plate. This song also appeared on the One Tree Hill soundtrack in early 2005, giving the world their first taste of The Wreckers. The song has changed slightly from the soundtrack cut to the album cut, giving it a bit more country twang than it had previously. While Jess's original version is an in-your-face rock song, The Wreckers have tooled it into a heartbreaking country/pop song in the vein of songs by country artists like the Dixie Chicks, only with more of a pop flavor.

Likewise, Michelle brings one of her songs, Lay Me Down, to the project, which fans have been dying to hear more than a 50-second clip of since the days of Hotel Paper. The finished version on this album is a good example of Michelle's talent with lyrics, as well as the girls' vocal range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once in a blue moon June 21, 2010
Format:Audio CD
There was never any doubt about Michelle Branch's talent. When Carlos Santana tapped her to collaborate and record together he said he picked her because "she's the real deal". And I think Santana would know if she wasn't. Then comes Jessica Harp. That girl is country right down to the roots, and destined to be one of the great songwriters of our time. Her first solo effort is pure country straight from the heart. Once in a blue moon two great talents come together and something very special happens. Individually these two are incredible talents, but when they came together it was, as they say, "pure magic". Musically they are so much alike but so different at the same time. You can hear both influences in the songs but they just meld together and create music that you can feel. It almost defies being labeled. Every song on the album is pure gold, especially "Tennessee". It was sad when they split so soon to pursue solo projects, and even sadder that Jessica released her first major label solo album then announced she wasn't going to perform anymore but rather concentrate on song writing. My advice is that you should grab all the Wreckers stuff now before it becomes hard to find. I know I did. But who knows what may happen someday. There are three things we know to be true: Water is wet, the sky is blue, and the Wreckers belong together. We can only hope.
