"Kristina Murray's honeyed vocals and bright guitar style can be deceiving on Unravelin,' especially as conduits for angry tirades and
tales of all-night benders. But her vocal artistry tempers words that
can feel like parodies of old-fashioned country-and-Western lyrics...But
there's more to this album than a C&W ingenue simply following
traditional cues. The eleven tracks reveal a vocalist and guitarist with
a distinct style. Murray's spirited vocals...deliver a passion that
goes deeper than simple stories about booze and breakups." A.H. Goldstein - Denver Westword
"Kristina Murray has a voice that purveyors of ‘Wal-Mart country’ would love to get their filthy, nasty hands on. But Murray’s
too honky-tonk and too whiskey-soaked to be the soundtrack of the next
Chevy truck commercial....the disc is classy and well arranged from
start to finish. From shit-kicking country rockers to pedal steel-rich
ballads, Murray follows on the cowboy booted heels of country’s classic
ladies like Emmylou Harris and Tammy Wynette with grace and just a
little bit of attitude." Brian F. Johnson - Marquee Magazine
