    Given that Heather Eatman was just the second performer ever signed to John Prine's Oh Boy imprint (the first being Prine himself, of course), it's safe to assume that her debut would closely follow the label's party line, delivering literate folk-pop characterized by considerable wit and poignancy. Mascara Falls doesn't disappoint on those counts, but to peg her as little more than a distaff Prine wanna-be is to ignore the originality of Eatman's vision; songs like "Used Car," "Big Bass Drum" and "Miss Liberty" are Gothic character studies closer in spirit to the fiction of Flannery O'Connor than conventional folk music, complete with lyrics possessing a real flair for poetic physical imagery. ~ Jason Ankeny

    Dirty Linen (2-3/96, p.91) - "Another regional issue from the FAST FOLK people, who have become the singer/songwriter era's counterpart to the old field collectors of traditional ballads....and as is usually the case with FF disks there are some pleasant discoveries...".
