Ashes And Roses

Review This is a Christmas album worth listening to all year long. When Mary Chapin Carpenter set out to create Come Darkness, Come Light, she took a far different approach to recording a holiday album than most artists do. Rather than simply lending her voice to time-worn Christmas standards, Mary Chapin wrote her own set of heartfelt songs which explore the many meanings and emotions that Christmas evokes in each of us. These songs, mixed with a few hand-picked gems from other writers and rarely heard traditional tunes, will speak directly to the hearts of all Mary Chapin Carpenter fans. These are not merely holiday songs, they are simply great Mary Chapin Carpenter songs, both warm and intimate.
The Essential Mary Chapin Carpenter

Review This folk singer became an unlikely country star in the '90s; after all, there was no twang, no heavy strings-just honest songs. That scored big with audiences, though, and Mary notched the hits Down at the Twist and Shout; I Feel Lucky; Passionate Kisses; The Hard Way; He Thinks He'll Keep Her , and Shut Up and Kiss Me , all of which are on this 16-track career-spanning CD!

Come Darkness Come Light: Twelve Songs of Christmas

Review Ashes and Roses is the new album from acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter on ZoŽ/Rounder Records. On this, her twelfth studio recording, Carpenter continues to produce writing that is nearly peerless in the way her compositions dig deep into the various extremes of experience. Highlights include the track Soul Companion, which features a special duet with James Taylor. Recorded in Nashville, the 13-track album was produced by Carpenter and long-time collaborator Matt Rollings (Lyle Lovett, Keith Urban) and recorded and mixed by Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson).
The Calling

Review Only 5 of the 17 tracks here represent the original hit versions of tunes heard on Mary's studio albums, making this greatest-hits release rather unconventional-but it's a welcome change! Includes Can't Take Love For Granted; Wherever You Are; Down At The Twist And Shout (live from Super Bowl XXXI!); I Feel Lucky; Dreamland; Grow Old With Me ; the title track, and more.

Come On Come On

Review Mary Chapin Carpenter's third album perfected her mix of singer-songwriter introspection, storytelling, and the occasional up-tempo mood changer. It spawned a huge country radio hit in the surprisingly durable zydeco romp "Down at the Twist and Shout," but the most memorable track is "Going Out Tonight," a gutsy, folk-rocking statement of purpose from a brokenhearted woman who's gonna start living again even if it kills her. --Rickey Wright
Stones In The Road

Review 2014 release from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Songs From The Movie, with its compelling orchestral reinvention of classic Mary Chapin Carpenter compositions, is an artistic landmark for Mary Chapin. Collaborating with composer/arranger and producer Vince Mendoza and working once again with co-producer Matt Rollings, the album harkens to her love of classic film and symphonic music. Citing as inspiration such seminal film composers as Elmer Bernstein and Thomas Newman, and contemporary symphonic composers like Tobias Picker and Morten Lauridsen, Carpenter had long imagined this project but it wasn't until she had the chance to work with Mendoza that it came to fruition. The result reprises 10 of Carpenter's songs in Mendoza's distinctively beautiful and cinematic arrangements to give the listener the continuum of a film soundtrack, albeit an imaginary one.
