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.

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!

Everything Shelby does is great. She's so honest with her music and she sings what is going on with her. She's very underrated as an artist. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Tery Vara
Shelby always has my ear. She clearly writes and selects songs with meaning. Maybe that's why this cd is a bit short time-wise. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Average Joe
Shelby Lynne is an amazing talent. This a short release, only 5 or 6 songs. All of which are first tier.Published on February 4, 2014 by G. Millar
Excellent album that belongs along side her "My Name Is Shelby Lynn" release. A beautiful throw-back to earlier Shelby styling.Published on January 30, 2014 by Richard Weaver
