  • Summary: Five years since her last release (Christmas album withstanding), country singer Kelly Willis returns with a new album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Translated From Love, her first in five years, is a treat in any emotional language.
  2. Translated From Love, with its dozen songs about the resilience of love, is a kick in the pants compared to the relatively mellow "Easy."
  3. With results that transcend category, Willis sounds like an artist renewed.
  4. 80
    Translated From Love utterly captures Kelly Willis' oft-wayward talent. [Oct 2007, p.115]
  5. 80
    The result is an unusual and likeable mix of country rock, rockabilly and excellent ballads. [Nov 2007, p.102]
  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.'
