Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/23/93, p.156) - "...Plainly beautiful, Iris DeMent's voice has the high country clarity rarely heard these days..."

Entertainment Weekly (9/4/92, p.73) - "...a batch of songs about love, home, and family so good you'd swear you've heard them before...I hear America singing--and it sounds like Iris DeMent..." - Rating: A

Q (6/93, p.95) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...her voice is an extraordinary thing, one step back from a perpetual hillbilly yodel. Her songs, too, display an emotional charge and simplicity of touch that can prove joyful and touching by turns, even on potentially soggy material...a performance of almost unnerving naturalness..."

Option (Sep.-Oct./92, p.99) - "...DeMent is a glorious songwriter..."

Melody Maker (5/22/93, p.29) - "...INFAMOUS ANGEL dwells lightly, but not winsomely, on love and home and the riddles of existence....It's also quite lovely...INFAMOUS ANGEL ranks among the best of simple pleasures, for sure..."

Audio Magazine (11/93, p.105) - " of the most ingenuous, charming, and original storytelling songwriters in years...."

NME (Magazine) (9/4/93, p.30) - "...INFAMOUS ANGEL is steeped in `Last Picture Show' Americana, without once resorting to rose-tinted nostalgia... Iris DeMent is a high plains drifter of the heart and INFAMOUS ANGEL is 100 years of solitude condensed into 11 cracking tunes..."
