    A wee bit too teenagerish in emotion. But some lovely tunes. Not for people under the age of 40.

    Rosanne is good, always does, but in this album, she's just average... with a few good songs and many poor, hushed, boring songs.

    I saw this tour recently and I was non-plussed to say the least. It's sad that Rosanne lost her dad, arguably one of the true giants of our culture, but trying to translate her loss into music is taking Joe Fanatic Rosanne Fan into the realm of discomfort. Her showcase featuring this album is a mess. Something about water, stark landscapes, dead leaves, and blurry automobiles. I saw this tour recently and I was non-plussed to say the least.

Her showcase featuring this album is a mess. Something about water, stark landscapes, dead leaves, and blurry automobiles. She's right when she said it's not a summer party album. It's not even fit for the Addams Family. For all of you lapdogs who gave this a perfect score, you hearby have your reviewing credentials permanently revoked. If you want to hear a truly flawless album by Rosanne, pick up "Interiors." Which leads me to another bone to pick, this one with her handlers. You're representing one of the best female artists on the planet, and you idiots didn't even have half of her records on sale during the "Rules of Travel" tour. You all should be banned to a lifetime of listening to the Opry cows. Expand

  1. This album is extraordinary. It is brave, difficult, and honest. It is utterly moving and beautiful. Because it so successfully marries all of her strengths as a songwriter, singer, and musician, Black Cadillac may be the crowning achievement of her career thus far.
  2. Black Cadillac is darker than its predecessor, but with melodies often more complex and lyrics more stunningly poetic than anything its creator has conjured before, the album is more transforming than depressing, and exquisitely beautiful.

    The best of Cash's nuanced compositions... turns her healing process into great art. [27 Jan 2006, p.84]
