  • Hello Cruel World – reviews | Gretchen Peters
    in the brokenness of her protagonist s beloved There is humor irony and sensuality on Hello Cruel World too In Paradise Found a jazzy noirish blues Peters points to East of Eden as the place paradise lies albeit in a very earthly dimension When your need is strong and the hour is late Baby you got the key to my garden gate In Woman on the Wheel she uses circus metaphors in a rockist jaunt and reveals Sometimes I ask God please God just show me what s behind the door As if God was Monty Hall and this was Let s Make a Deal Walsh s piano strolls it out to the ledge and Lancio s electric guitar knocks it over Five Minutes is a spare devastating portrait of a woman carrying a torch against her will for an ex Idlewild is delivered from the point of view of a child in a traveling car Her parents are lost in their own trapped reveries as they go to visit her grandmother on November 22 1963 This child s gaze is clear she already knows the difference between truth and perception via Walsh s jazz piano and organ wash David Henry s cello and Lancio s guitar Hello Cruel World with its many versions of Americana is expertly and sincerely free of cliches or false romantic notions about any subject it addresses Its large spiritual truths are revealed in the only way they matter small intimate experiences This album comes to the listener as a gift wrapped in tattered paper making it all the more precious to receive Thom Jurek FINANCIAL TIMES UK Gretchen Peters Hello Cruel World By Ludovic Hunter Tilney Nashville singer songwriter s music has the sweet ache of 1970s Tom Waits Hello Cruel World s title track introduces a typical Gretchen Peters heroine bruised by life but indomitable a point reinforced by the way the song s lush country pop rises and falls Best of all is Five Minutes in which the Nashville singer songwriter imagines a luncheonette waitress on a cigarette break reflecting on teenage pregnancy and romantic disappointment The music has the sweet ache of 1970s Tom Waits while the lyrics pack an extraordinary amount of story telling into five minutes DAILY MIRROR UK Gretchen Peters Hello Cruel World Nashville based Grammy nominated singer songwriter Peters has always been a class act but the blend of fearlessness and beauty in the songs on this album raises her game Her empathetic vocal and cast of collaborators put a premium on simplicity and directness MAVERICK UK Gretchen Peters Hello Cruel World Scarlet Letter Nashville based singer songwriter Gretchen Peters is still best known as a writer for such major stars as Martina McBride George Strait Bryan Adams Patty Loveless Faith Hill Pam Tillis and many others despite the fact that over the past sixteen years or so she s released some superb albums and has toured extensively especially in the UK where she commands a strong
