  1. Translated From Love, her first in five years, is a treat in any emotional language.
  2. 80
    The result is an unusual and likeable mix of country rock, rockabilly and excellent ballads. [Nov 2007, p.102]
  3. 80
    Translated From Love utterly captures Kelly Willis' oft-wayward talent. [Oct 2007, p.115]
  4. With results that transcend category, Willis sounds like an artist renewed.
  5. In all, it's a winner, a solid, consistently crafted "new country" record that wears rock & roll proudly on its sleeve.
  6. The honeyed twang of the Austin songbird remains a hallmark on Translated, but the songs are forged with a more mature fire and relaxed tone.
  7. Her good taste tethers her to the old homestead on her first album since 2002, taking off only once: on an unlikely cover of Iggy Pop's 'Success.'
