This is really a great album. The music is very upbeat but if you read the lyrics there is a lot of sadness and loss there.

The album has Tara Nevins singing songs that are arranged differently than most of the stuff she sings with Donna The Buffalo.

I think Wood and Stone is the only song that is sort of similar to Donna The Buffalo. Tennesee River has an almost heavy metal sound to it. I sounds a bit out of place on the mostly folky album but she makes it work and sounds natural singing it.

Standouts on the album for me are Snowbird, What Money Cannot Buy, Nothing Really (which is a great old timey tune like the stuff she used to do- that I miss hearing -with the Heartbeats), The Wrong Side, and her version of the Beauty of the Days Gone by is incredible. Will bring a tear to your eye.

There's really not a bad song on this one. Her singing has never been stronger and her fiddle playing is great. A lot of her fiddling is cajun esque but she's straight up old timey in a VERY excellent way on Nothing Really.

Well worth the wait and tops her previous solo album which was also excellent in my opinion.

Even if you aren't a Donna The Buffalo fan you'll love this one.

If you are not familiar with Tara Nevins please do yourself a favor and buy this disc. Her earlier disc is fantastic too but this one features more of her on vocals as well as instrumentally. And, I would be remiss if I did not mention her work with Donna the Buffalo. They are my absolute favorite band of the last many years. I first heard them at Merlefest close to 10 years ago and have been a loyal fan of Tara's and Donna the Buffalo since. I almost always have them "pending" on my calendar to hear live. If they are within a day's drive (sometimes more)I try to see them. This disc is well done - you will love it, I promise!

If you've enjoyed Tara's contributions to Donna the Buffalo, you will really love this CD. More in the Americana vein than DTB, and without the jam, but really sweet. Thirteen lively tracks recorded with superb assistance from producer and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell will make you want to move.

Tara is one of the most talented artists out there these days if you are into Americana. As a long time Donna the Buffalo fan I was excited when this album came out, and it did not disappoint. The production is perfect and the music is of the highest quality.

Nevins' second solo album (her first since 1999's Mule to Ride) hangs on to the rootsy underpinnings of her musical day job with Donna the Buffalo, but cuts a looser, more soulful country groove than does her long-time group. Without a co-vocalist sharing the microphone, Nevins' voice carries the album, and without a second writer, her songs stretch out across all her influences, including fiddle- and steel-lined country, second line rhythms and the Cajun sounds of her earlier band, the Heartbeats. The latter appear together on the energetic fiddle tune "Nothing Really," and individually on several other tracks. Additional guests include Levon Helm (drumming on two tracks), Allison Moorer (tight trio harmony with Teresa Williams on "The Wrong Side") and Jim Lauderdale (harmony on the acoustic "Snowbird").

Producer Larry Campbell fits each song with a unique groove and adds superb electric and pedal steel guitar. The girlishness in Nevins' voice and the layering of double-tracked vocals add a hint of the Brill Building, which is a terrific twist on the rustic arrangements. The lyrics cast an eye on relationships that refuse to live up to their potential, with music that underlines the certainty of a woman who will no longer suffer others' indecision, inaction or infidelity. Three deftly picked covers include the standard "Stars Fell on Alabama" (from the film 20 Years After), the traditional "Down South Blues," and Van Morrison's "Beauty of Days Gone By." Campbell and Nevins work some real magic here, creating a musical platform that often feels a more crafted fit for Nevins' singing than that of her long-time group. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]

This disc could be used to teach Country radio what Country Music is and can sound like. Tara and her friends really did a nice job on this one.

Okay, kids, you've got to hear this one. I knew Tara Nevins back in the day when she was a brand new singer, and this album showcases her characteristic tightly-wrought songs, pitch-perfect melodies, and continuing development as an American roots singer who writes most of her own lyrics. The simplicity of the tracks, the directness and near-purity of the sound, made these songs go round and round in my head (in a good way) after I listened for the first time. I'm listening to "Stars Fell on Alabama Last Night" as I write this short review; it's a short tune that sticks. The mournful fiddle that opens "Wood and Stone" quickly yields to a catchy title tune that's probably my favorite. I can't believe how pure Nevins' voice is. Gotta love it when it comes in vinyl, too.
