5.0 out of 5 stars Not Wired for Easy December 14, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Shelby Lynne's new EP "Thanks" is a five-song return to form that marries her amazingly expressive vocals to some strong new songs. "Call Me Up" that opens the set is a bouncy catchy little gem with Shelby on guitar and Maxine Waters on background vocals. "Forevermore" is a two-minute gem with cosmic Lynne pushing aside "the velvet curtain." "Walkin'" is a sweet old-timey religious shuffle as Shelby "walks in the steps of the Lord." "The Road Is On" is one of my favorites with its slow bluesy torch-ballad burn as Lynne milks the emotions, equal parts sadness and resolve, "Faith keeps me busy trying to find it." "Thanks" is a lovely homage to those who stand by us during tough times. Shelby Lynne is one of the most interesting of current recording artists because she always keeps you on your toes. Her incredible vocal gift and songwriting muse constantly takes her audience in directions unexpected. The opening line of "Forevermore" is, "I'm not wired for easy," which might aptly describe her career. Every bar of every song is absolutely real, authentic and sincere. She is a Master Musician. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks for sharing these wonderful songs, Shelby! April 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD
"Thanks” is a blues- and gospel-infused 5-track EP by the singer-songwriter with the distinctive contralto voice, Shelby Lynne. These original, Americana gospel songs were recorded at her Rancho Mirage home studio and the mini-album was co-produced by Shelby Lynne and Ben Peeler.

The catchy rocker “Call Me Up” is a great opener, followed by the upbeat “Forevermore.” The most gospel-ish song on the EP is “Walkin’,“ with great backing vocals by Maxine Waters and a catchy chorus that goes: “My feet don’t need, To wander no more, I’m walking in the steps of the Lord.” This is ensued by the haunting, bluesy ballad “This Road I’m On,” in which she sings about how “Faith, keeps me busy trying to find it.” The EP finishes with the countrified title track “Thanks,” another great example of modern country-gospel.

As Shelby herself said about this EP: "As a musician, these songs are a way to express my love and gratitude to the universe and to all of the music appreciating souls out there for the friendship and fellowship that music brings us… all in the name of love and sharing." So: thanks for sharing these wonderful songs, Shelby!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks for thanks...how bout 4.5 stars March 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Through the years I'd heard of Shelby Lynne but never really knew much about her nor could not place her voice with a song. Last year I caught a video: Heaven's Only Days Down The Road - that did it - a month or two later I got the CD from Amazon. I am amazed about why this incredible singer does not impact/chart more than she does.

I love her singing and would never pan her outright...none the less this is a short album (an ep if you prefer) and I just don't think it measures up to the other three albums I have of hers. The first track: Call Me Up, is just too repetitive with the song title entirely being used way too much... it can work in some songs (i.e. Run Baby Run by Sheryl Crow) but on this track it seems like it's a shortcoming for a lack of other words. And I happen to think way too much of Shelby and very highly regard her too much for this. Now that being said it's an arguable point and others may find it very pleasing.

Others have reviewed each track in this effort quite well. I think one challenge is that on this CD and the Revelation Road CD she writes each song and produces the album as well. It works on Revelation Road but I believe she needs to open her self up to other writers and perhaps bring on another producer or at least a co-producer. This album just seems to fall short - very good yes; but excellent - no... but it should be!

This woman is an incredible voice and to me one of the very best true country singers out there today. Taylor Swift (I like) is a glittery country pop singer - Miranda Lambert is a real live true blue country female singer, like Shelby. Shelby Lynne songs shows her to us and we feel her: Frustrated, vulnerable, soul searching - frequently spiritual (God.

I don't understand why Shelby Lynne has not received the attention she so richly deserves for her songs and her amazing voice. If you are interested in hearing what a real singer sounds like, not more commercial dreck, please listen to any of her CDs and enjoy. The only down side for me was how few songs there were for this release.

5.0 out of 5 stars No, Thank-You February 16, 2014

Shelby Lynne could sing excerpts from the yellow pages and I would listen. Her voice has that combination of whiskey huskiness and raw emotion all too rare in modern music. Although I don't think this is her best, it is still very, very good. When I got it, I put it in my car's CD rotation and it has been there ever since. If Shelby can't touch your heart and soul, well maybe you are lacking something there.
