Rolling Stone (6/11/98, p.116) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...replaces the skintight band of that solo breakthrough [TIGERLILY} with a shifting cast of players, reaching out to include brass and strings.

Entertainment Weekly (6/23/95, p.54) - "...With its unadorned, keyboard-based arrangements, TIGERLILY is more sparely produced than anything Merchant did with 10,000 Maniacs, yet the starkness works in her favor..." - Rating: B+Musician (9/95, p.93) - "...Her new playmates have a far greater stylistic range than the Maniacs, while Merchant conveys more passion and personality than in the past, adding anger and wit to confessionals..."Mojo (Publisher) (7/95, p.110) - "...this debut is ultimately a victory for [Merchant's] voice, her flair for narrative songwriting and that habitual chafing between the sober and the sensual, sense and sensibility."72.64211

Uncut (p.104) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The centrepiece is the pairing of Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger for Woody Guthrie favourite 'Hobo's Lullaby'. Moving and quietly inflamed, it epitomises this strong, humane compilation."No Depression (p.99) - "Not surprisingly, themes of strife and poverty abound, but what's most striking about these songs is the absence of pathos and the prevailing sense of hope."0.1689065
