    I've been struggling with this album for 2 weeks now. It got my attention because of the raving reviews. Well, one thing is clear, Caitlin Rose is a very talented musician and songwriter. However, her voice has a limited range, that sometimes is annoying, especially when she tries to sing too high and starts screaming, that makes my ears bleed. Also not all songs are good compositions, in fact for me there are too many songs not good enough, boring so to speak. Things Change is awful, and For The Rabbits is also unlistenable. On the other hand, the albums opening track, Learning To Ride, is gorgeous. Caitlin is at her best when she is not too serious, because drama really doesn't fit her voice. When she channels that Velvet Underground / Nashville 60's atmosphere, Caitlin is adorable. Expand

    Rose's own songwriting gifts are on ample display throughout Own Side Now, with lyrics that show a knack for poetic turns and artful understatement in equal measure -- a combination too seldom found in young songwriters' work -- and humble but hummable melodies that make the most of her grounding in both alt-country and pop.

    She is a knowing-and, more importantly, feeling-country musician, and one with a bright future ahead of her.

    While it may occasionally get too precious for some ears, Own Side Now is a tantalizing debut.
