Editorial Reviews

weld 1 [weld]
- verb (used with object)
1. to unite or fuse (as pieces of metal) by hammering, compressing, or the like, esp. after rendering soft or pasty by heat, and sometimes with the addition of fusible material like or unlike the pieces to be united.

I m not a welder, at least not in the typical sense of the trade. But my daddy is, by way of the 2300 hours of training that certified him, courtesy of the Atlanta Federal penitentiary.

I myself couldn t put a rod in the thingamajig. And heavy equipment makes me nervous. But I do tend to fuse things, confuse things, sometimes with sparks, sometimes like a lava melt, sometimes backed by a tank of compressed air ready to blow, sometimes quiet as a slow leak. The beauty of writing, recording, gigging and the like, to me is, when it s right, it comes together with a glow in my soul, so intense it pierces a hot afternoon like a hissing firecracker. Don t look at it directly...it ll burn your eyes! mama used to yell. I stood bare footed hanging on the inside of the screen door of our Florida patio. I loved watching Cook s Welding at work in our tiny dirt yard. It was so hard not to look. Couldn t help but look. And the rawness of my new album Welder is case and point. Apparently, I still can t help but look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant! June 11, 2010
By Eric
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All over the place or diverse? This album ranges from one spectrum to another. Fans of her previous work can enjoy Yes to Booty as an upbeat song warning her man to choose her over beer. El Camino moves along and is a bit trippy, which touches on her other influences. Then you hear tracks like Girlfriend Tonight or Mama's Funeral, you get the ballads that bring you back to an old-school Nashville sound. In my opinion, the coup de grâce of this album is Heroin Addict Sister. Knowing of her Florida roots and listening to that song, I can't help but believe it is written on true family experience as much of her music is. The brilliance of this album is how it can take you "all over the place". Elizabeth is virtually in a genre of her own, writing and playing guitar on most of the 14 tracks along with her own band. To me, it is a refreshing change from the bubble-gum-country sounds coming out of Nashville. In the end...diverse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that same old Nashville drivel. June 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is smart and diverse. The songs are very well written and full of emotion. They also reveal Elizabeth's best writing to date. Stories of love, loss, mistakes and triumph with no excuses for the cards dealt, choices made and the life lived. Many show her sense of humor. Her charm is evident in every performance. The musicianship is excellent. Each instrument supports the song, and quite simply sounds fresh unlike the music that most frequently comes off Nashville's record row. Nashville is full of talent, and I just can't buy another record recorded by the same six guys. Is this a country album? You bet it is. Is it a pure throw back to the 60's? Not hardly. I hear that character in the songs like the best of Loretta, and Dolly, but I also hear an artist that had her chance to deliver her best effort on her terms that is exciting and enjoyable. Don Was is an excellent producer. It is clear that he did not get in the way of her vision, and helped the artist make the recording that they wanted to make. The best way to get this record heard is to buy it listen to it, play it for your friends, and request it on radio, and most importantly just enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth hits a home run ! May 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Forget the pap on country radio and check out the future of Nashville singers. Elizabeth is produced by Don Was on this one and it seems hands off and let it ride were the order of business. Just a great and soulful country record with a slice of humor for fun. This is the real deal girls and boys. By the way, when was the last time you heard soulful used to describe anything comming out of vanilla city, this is that good !

5.0 out of 5 stars This is REAL country music! June 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I love real country music (Hank, Merle, Willie, Loretta and Buck) but I detest what has passed for Top 40 country music for the last 20 years. If Hashville would just be honest and call Top 40 country "Seventies Soft Rock with Fiddle or Steel Guitar plus Obligatory Hat", I wouldn't get so wound up. Anyway, Elizabeth Cook is never going to get rich making this wonderful, down-to-earth, genuine country music, but I don't think she minds very much. This is the real deal. Enjoy it before it disappears completely.

5.0 out of 5 stars My goodness! January 11, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'm delighting in this album.

Ms. Cook is genuine, the real-deal-complete-with-history.

This album listens like that paragraph you have to read eleven times to comprehend. Dang! Arabic themes in the first song? The musical equivalent of a sixteen-syllable word four words into a novel. This, you understand, will entail some work, but you get the notion you're going to enjoy the labor.

Ms. Cook is comfortable enough in her own voice to take it places. I can't tell you how many different studio influences I heard in the production. Somebody cared enough about Ms. Cook's own truth to put her in places where she sounds her best.

The production team on this album learned individual meters on a first-name basis. An album like this is an example of why Nashville still owns production. New York, L.A. and Chicago have their own traditions, but Nashville treats sound like the local religion, and it shows. I want my pizza from New York, my hot dog from Chicago, my half-caf-soy-latte-frappe-uni-garnished-lobster-with-an-uncommon-white-wine-from-up-the-coast from L.A., and my music from Nashville.

But that's the production. That's only what lets you hear Ms. Cook.

The raison d'etre for all that effort is the work of a woman who distills long generations of family into a little less than an hour. That's because her trans-generational wisdom lives, it seems, right near her present. Her words are suffused by it. Her tones sound two hundred years ago and ten years from now. She has that most disarming (to others) hillbilly habit for genius-unanticipated and unexpected.

To those unready, Ms. Cook will prove surprisingly familiar and disturbingly alien. In that space lies Ms. Cook's art, and our pleasure, be it via iPhone earphones or multi-thousand-dollar sound system.

My word, but what a time this album IS!
