Review : Rita Wilson - AM/FM
Rolling StoneSensuous U.S. radio hits from the Sixties and Seventies have a surprisingly able proponent in Rita Wilson, the L.A.-born actress and producer who debuts as a singer with this collection.
Helped by Sheryl Crow ("Angel of the Morning," "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?"), Chris Cornell ("All I Have to Do Is Dream"), Faith Hill ("Love Has No Pride") and others, Wilson renews Watergate-era gems with an expressive denim-and-suede soprano; on "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues," she and Jackson Browne sing a song from 1971, but the stripped-down, bossa-nova-flavored arrangement, like much of AM/FM itself, feels timeless.
Huffington PostRita Wilson's performance on this debut CD is tasteful, classy, and reverent -- a songwriter's dream. Rather than being just a mere vanity project, "AM/FM" is a soothing balm in an angry world.
While Ms. Wilson does not have a huge voice, it is a pure and pretty one. It is sweet without being sappy. It should also be noted that the arrangements and production beautifully compliment her, so kudos to Fred Mollin for great production.
I think AM/FM is a lovely revisiting of old friends, done in a timeless fashion. So thanks to Rita Wilson for not only living out her lifelong dream, but for reminding me why I wanted to be a songwriter in the first place. Job well done, Rita Wilson, job well done....full text
