Subject: RE: Review: Kate Rusby, Girl Who Couldn't Fly
Ed--Sorry about that *grin* It just seems like most of the KR discussions I've read on the forum have eventually become about whether she is/isn't all she's cracked up to be. It certainly isn't a problem for me--even though, as you say, her songs and albums tend to have a certain similarity to them, I still really enjoy listening to her voice and the way she interprets the songs.
There's no question she favors a good depressing ballad about love, death and sailor boys. And I did find much of this album to be a bit disappointing. But overall, I still adore her as a performer, especially because her personality when NOT singing couldn't be more complementary to her preferred repertoire--she's full of mischief and Barnsley attitude, which is fun to watch and listen to.
