    This is a profoundly good record. [Nov 2001, p.102]
  2. 100
    Welch and longtime partner David Rawlings weave a spellbinding mix of desperation and salvation across this album's 10 tracks. [#52, p.111]
  3. Ironically, while this is Welch's quietest album, with nary a drum or electric instrument in earshot, it's even closer to the spiritual vicinity of rock.
  4. A winsome, beautiful collection of songs... Welch has never seemed more assured, building a creatively expansive work out of modest ingredients.
  5. More than simply an expression of her music, Time (The Revelator) is a glimpse into the artist's personality.

One of these rare songs that capture a certain moment. Full Review »
