Wildy’s World Top 60 Albums of 2010: 22. Annie Fitzgerald – In Good Time

 

Annie Fitzgerald has a gorgeous voice, material to match, and a winning presence. She lit the Ritz stage in Minneapolis on September 17th with a personable glow and fine music, capturing the crowd from the moment she stepped on stage, right up until the show was over. Annie acquitted herself as an archetypal country vocalist, leaning heavily on her almost uncanny gift for breaking her voice over a note. She fairly shimmers, threading a melody like she was born to it. Artists of Annie Fitzgerald’s caliber are, in a word, rare. To call Fitzgerald brilliant understates the case. Annie Fitzgerald has served notice: she is a country soul siren with whom one does well to reckon. This country-rock siren is a natural force discerning listeners do themselves a favor to enjoy.”  –Dwight Hobbes, Mpls/St. Paul Magazine, Twin Cities Daily Planet  Read Full Review

 

“A little bit folk, a little bit pop, this thoughtfully produced album is a gem. Fitzgerald has managed to create new music with a message that is thoroughly original by today’s musical standards. The lyrics, all written by Fitzgerald in collaboration with her colleagues, are unpolluted with the synthetic and wholly superficial mess heard in most songs today. It was a joy to hear someone deviate from the norm.” –Cristin Colvin, Elevate Difference  Read Full Review

“In Good Time” is a joy. The many moments of sonic and emotional purity are enveloped in nicely crafted arrangements that pull you in like a hot chocolate with Kalua. First you like the sweetness, then the complexity, and finally the payoff when your heart skips a beat. The lyrics are touching, original and authentic throughout, and the sentiments so real, you feel you’re witnessing, not just listening. Annie’s beautiful falsetto provides frequent flights to the firmament for early glimpses of sunrise. If you’re been feeling a little out of touch lately, buy this CD and you won’t feel that way anymore. –Steve Peterson Photography

“The first thing that pulls you in is her voice; captivating, compelling & dynamic. Then you hear the beautiful melodic lines & the intelligent, thoughtful lyrics in her songs. You watch her play and you cannot help but be impressed by her musicianship. Annie Fitzgerald is a music executive’s dream. I look forward to watching her star rise.” –Bob Leone – Projects director (1988-2006) Songwriters Hall of Fame

 

“Her voice is absolutely captivating from the first note of the first song, think of a smoother more welcoming Sarah McLachlan. The musical arrangements fit each song well, and even though this is an independent album it screams big label quality. Lyrically you are pulled in and feel as if she is singing about your life. This is definitely album that you will want to get.  A true find.”  –My Entertainment Buzz  Read Full Review

“”In Good Time”, the debut effort from Annie Fitzgerald introduces us to a young woman deserving to be heard.  The lush orchestration and moving lyrics throughout will capture your attention and imagination.  The entire production screams seasoned vet, not raw newcomer and should signal a long exciting career.”- Vinny “Bond” Marini, Music on the Couch

 

“Annie is amazing. The voice will grab you right away, but the lyrics will really pull you in. Listen and enjoy!” – Preston Waters, Cyclone Radio

 

“More than anyone else in this post, Annie Fitzgerald belongs to this borderland of ours. She can go from folk to rock in the space of a single song, and have it make perfect sense. She expresses emotion by putting more or less air in her voice, and this technique works for her on both louder and softer passages in the music. Fitzgerald shows both her intelligence and her empathy for her characters beautifully with “Another Sad Love Song”.” – Oliver di Place: From Folk to Rock Read Full Piece

 

“Sarah McLachlan has nothing on Annie, Annie Fitzgerald is simply outstanding…..what a voice……” – Reggae Link, BlogTalkRadio
