    Over the Rhine seems to inhabit another time, one that sounds awfully appealing here.

    Over The Rhine have made their masterpiece at last.

    Similar in style and cadence to their previous outing, Meet Me at the Edge of the World falls somewhere between the rural, antebellum folk of Gillian Welch, the evocative, sepia-toned eccentricity of Tom Waits, and the soulful ache of Lucinda Williams.

    The Joe Henry-produced LP is full of subtle beauty and rich imagery, but there's so much of it. [Oct 2013, p.72]

    Bergquist is in wonderfully relaxed voice and the open production by Joe Henry allows her vocals--a mix of Sheryl Crow, Rickie Lee Jones and even Billie Holiday at times--plenty of room to explore the bucolic shadows and light of the material.

    The varying shades and tones of this beautifully constructed album remind me of the dappled shade of a pathway under trees. Refreshing.The varying shades and tones of this beautifully constructed album remind me of the dappled shade of a pathway under trees. Refreshing. Unexpected (you don't see where the album is going), and quite hard to define. Which is a good thing. Over The Rhine sound on this album as if they have literally been doing this for their whole lives. Meet Me At The Edge Of The World has a timeless feel to it as if it was constructed over a lifetime. It also has an immediacy about it which has nothing to do with it's folk/country roots. Subtly beautiful and irresistible. Expand
