Amy Ray, Didn't It Feel Kinder
2008 | Label: Daemon Records / The Orchard

Social activist, environmental crusader, gold-certified folkie, celesbian: by any standard except her own, Amy Ray is good enough. “Why can't I just deliver?” she sings in “Stand and Deliver,” measuring herself against an idealized lover and coming up short. In “Birds of a Feather,” she locates the fault lines not just in the gay community, but the human one: “If we are birds of a feather/ Why can't we fly in formation?” she asks against… read more »

Punk Detail w/ Swing!

FlyTherapy

Amy Ray is a powerhouse, and this album shows she's not only a ball of punk energy, but a punk that cares about the details and nuances of her craft. The DIY attitude is here, but make no mistake, this is an album of incredible tunes, sung by surely one of rock's most beautiful voices. Her subject matter has always come across with sensitivity and passion without sounding overwrought or heavy-handed. Dig the retro sound of the bass and drums, and feel it swing! Awesome...

The sound is halfway between Prom and Stag (less punk than Prom, less angsty than Stag). Bus Bus feels the most original.

Didn't It Sound Relevant

This album is fantastic because of its unadorned attentions to detail. Ray has the ability to surprise both melodically and lyrically while planting her guitar firmly (and relevantly) in underground soil. "Birds of a Feather" and "Out on the Farm" are engaging, provoking and addictive. Amazing album with fire-under-foot stealth.

Amazing!

DJMaxxx

Having been an Indigo Girls fan since the first release, I always buy whatever they do. This album is by far one of the best things they have released as a duo or as solo artists. Some different sounds for Amy but what a complete package it is! Can not recommend it enough!

Thank you Amy, for putting up your music on this site! You have stayed true to your writing style, and it has become another of my favourites. Well worth the download!

Best of her 3 albums yet!

Newomyn

From the Sassy "She's got to be" to the heart wrenching "Who sold the gun" to the in your face "Blame is a killer" this album is a full spectrum walk through more of what it's like to be in this world today. Go Amy - you Rock!

Amy Ray's "Didn't It Feel Kinder" is absolutely breathtaking. It's so good -- it's ridiculous.
