Cyd Ward - Reviews
"On the menu
at the Cyd Ward musical diner today, the primary ingredient of all the entrees is relationships. Ward tells tales and weaves small vignettes possessing universal human themes. The most powerful song is 'Killing Time', about the unconscionable violence that permeates from Main Street to Wall Street through the entire world." "The melancholy 'All Dressed Up,' about life cycles and circumstances, is a tune Nanci Griffith or Emmylou Harris would be proud to present. In the chorus of "What's It Like In Maine," Ward actually sounds reminiscent of a cross between Griffith and Harris. Order any of the entrees here and you'll do just fine. Ward, in her first release, has created a fine banquet of specials."
