Rolling Stone (11/16/95, p.110) - 3.5 Stars - Good - "...Harris floats in some netherland amid country, rock and folk. Her latest album turns this stylistic ambiguity into a stunning virtue....a wrenching collection of songs that merges popular and historical styles like a 1990s rethink of the Band..."Entertainment Weekly (9/26/95, p.60) - "...the biggest stretch of her career....the album plucks Harris from the safe ground of pristine country ballads and acoustic rave-ups and plops her squarely in the middle of idiosyncratic, New Age-y pop rock..." - Rating: A-Q (2/96, p.64) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995 - "...a timely reminder of just how fabulous a singer Emmylou Harris is..."Musician (11/95, p.87) - "...nothing in Harris' catalog prepares a listener for the leap she takes....[she] nudges her vocals gingerly into places as if completing a complex jigsaw puzzle....There are moments...that approximate...fleeting epiphany....WRECKING BALL isn't `country music,' not by a long shot..."Village Voice (2/20/96) - Ranked #12 in Village Voice's 1995 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.Mojo (Publisher) (12/00, p.41) - "...She steps off the edge into heavy rhythm tracks and instruments deployed as atmospheric noise while attention focuses on her voice - reaching low, straining high, letting elegance take care of itself..."New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Stephen Holden's list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "...eerie, atmospheric collaboration....a queen of country steps down from her pedestal to sing...with a frayed urgency..."Paste (magazine) - "It was, simply, a watershed. Emmylou Harris, with her song sense, acute rhythm guitar playing and set-on-stun gift as a vocal gut-leveler, was suddenly free to find the essence of her gift."144.8413

Down Beat (p.54) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's among her more directly emotive statements and often pays tribute to the departed....HARD BARGAIN is an aesthetic feast..."Billboard (p.48) - "She gets her twang on for the songs 'Six White Cadillacs' and 'Big Black Dog,' while 'Cross Yourself' closes the album on a soulful and deservedly triumphant note."Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he pounding, evocative opener 'The Road' recalls her touring time with Gram Parsons, while the sparse strum of 'Darlin' Kate' is a fine tribute to the McGarrigle sister who died last year."144.4991

Q - 3 Stars - Good - Recommended as one of the five best country albums of 1990 (12/91) - "...Carpenter's astute lyrical observation provides the missing link between Janis Ian and K.T. Oslin. Combining a strong melodic gift with a particular feel for the female predicament, Carpenter is a major new talent who should appeal to fans of Nanci Griffith..."Q (12/94, p.158) - 3 Stars - Good - "...her tremulous vocal style suggests a youth spent listening as much to Janis Ian and Joni Mitchell as to Tammy Wynette and Emmylou Harris. Better than this was to come, but this was a useful start..."0.3871641
