    All in all, it's pretty much perfect. [Jul 2003, p.100]
  2. Soul Journey might sound downbeat and lonesome, wistful and dusty, but this is gospel music compared to what went before.
  3. Her smoky Appalachian porch moan has never sounded deeper, realer or sexier. [6 June 2003, p.79]
  4. Soul Journey takes off in more than one new direction.
  5. Finds Welch showing more warmth, ease, and openness as both singer and songwriter.
  6. Soft, warm, but still interestingly distant.
  7. Her slow, earnest songs... don't have the texture of those from her three previous albums.
