Editorial Reviews

2010 debut album from the Alabama-reared singing duo consisting of siblings Laura and Lydia Rogers. This self titled debut is steeped in the familial camaraderie and mesmerizing harmonies braced by their Mussel Shoals roots. Produced by revered country knob-turner Dave Cobb (Waylon Jennings and Jamey Johnson), and executive-produced by T-Bone Burnett, The Secret Sisters' sound captured on their debut has been described by Burnett as "as close to `pure' as it gets, and I've been doing this for 40 years."

The Secret Sisters’ incredible story is as simple and true as the effortless harmonies that got them here. Begin anywhere – the thick and fertile brambles of their own family history or light upon the branches of the wondrous, fractal menagerie that makes up their self-titled debut album.

I've fallen out of love with recent country releases and have been relying on my catalog of music going back anywhere from 20-50 years to satisfy my country needs. This is a fantastic album by two sisters that are perfect for each other and remaining true to the contemporary country of the past.

The vocals of the sisters are great. They sound awesome together and the harmonies are top notch.

The only problem that I could really have with this album is the number of songs that are covers. The songs that they wrote themselves are very good, and I would have liked to see more of that and less covers on the album.

I'm not going to knock it down to 4 stars though, because even though I think there is room for improvement this is the kind of country I've been aching for. If you're sick of the poppy country of today and are ready for a good throwback to the past, give this a shot.

The debut eponymous CD from The Secret Sisters sounds like something that landed straight out of a time machine. As they said in O' Brother, Where Art Thou? it is "old timey" music; however, this is not a bad thing. It is not a coincident that T-Bone Burnett, the producer of the soundtrack for the aforementioned movie, is also listed as executive producer on this CD. When I see his name on a collection of songs, I am automatically interested. While it stands on its own, this CD stands with some of his best overseeing jobs: Elvis Costello's Secret, Profane and Sugarcane and B.B. King's One Kind Favor to name a couple.

The Secret Sisters (Laura and Lydia Rogers) will not stay a secret for long if this CD is any indication. What really makes it stand out are the vocal harmonies between the two. My favorite display is on "The One I Love Is Gone". It is a mournful bluesy lament of lost love. Lest anyone think this is a collection of downers, the next tune "My Heart Skips A Beat" is an upbeat rockabilly shuffle that avoids the trap of dripping with sunshine. I was surprised that artists as young as they were able to run the gamut of emotions without ever sound trite.

When I heard this the first time, my thoughts went to Sun Studios where Sam Phillips discovered Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis. While the recordings here are of better quality here, I thought they were stylistically consistent with that era. It's interesting how something that hearkens back so far sounds so fresh compared to all of the American Idol and Glee generated drivel. If you are looking for something different, give this a spin. Fans of that "old timey" music are sure to like it.

It's only 45 minutes of country music and there's also a few lows - some songs just needed more music from the musicians, and I'm pretty sure they could deliver that if asked for; use two microphones instead of just one next time for their vocals, just listen to their live performance on kcrw-morning becomes eclectic and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

But the highs of this record are, really, of a very high standard, music beautifully performed, with soul, passion and originality. Buy one and find it for yourself, they can actually reach you with their voices/music like only a much selected bunch of artists ever did! It's deliberately supposed to sound like a vintage recording but I guess they somehow managed to deliver some magic moments that can potentially put this album in the classics shelf.

I miss my pure country music. These ladies have great harmonies, They remind me a little bit of the Mcgarrigles,skeeter Davis, a bit of the McCarters or Roaches, and very much like the Carter Sisters.
These gals have sweet harmonies, stick to country routes, and make us pine for the days when country was country. Each cut has a unique flair, a cd that is a welcome addition to my collection. I like the fact that these artists are not pretentious, just sing with style and grace.

My mother use to listen to country music when I was growing up and this is right up her alley, yet I love it and so do some younger people I know. There is no complaining about the music in a car full of people when this is cd is playing. That should say it all! LOL! These girls stepped out of a time machine, yet so fresh and desparately needed within the counrty music genre. Not all flash and over the top drama. Clear, clean, pure talent! Nothing but honest talent. These girls deliver and live up to all great reviews I have been reading here and else where. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform live a few weeks ago and having never seen heard of them before, became a huge fan instantly. That never happens anymore. They are th real deal. Ps. Mom LOVEs this cd too!

WOW! I must have jumped into a time machine, and went back to the 1940's because this sounds
like this cd was recorded back then!!!the secret sisters are old time loretta lynn country!! there
voices are hauntingly beautiful, and the sound is so old country. There versions of WHY BABY WHY
AND WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME, are just as good as the originals, and are my favorite songs. once
again producer dave cobb, works his magic in producing a real good old fashion traditional country
cd, with Jamey Johnson and the secret sisters, why are so many people complaining, about no
real tradional country music.. there is plenty of it, you just have to look for it. get ready to
take a great trip back to country's past. DON'T KEEP THIS A SECRET!!! TELL EVERYONE TO BUY THIS
GEM OF A CD!!!, IF FANS WANT REAL COUNTRY MUSIC... STOP COMPLAINING, AND START BUYING
CDS LIKE THIS!!!
