" broken-hearted phrasing that will eat your cynicism for breakfast. Comparisons (Sarah McLachlan-like beauty meets Rickie Lee Jones' melancholic cool?) ultimately fail; Chambliss' gift is too complex. .. she's blessed with an intuitive understanding of harmony; and, yes, she's got that voice. ." Frank Rabey/MountainXpress Asheville, NC
