Shawn Colvin Few Small Repairs Rock Music CD Review

One word describes the CD Few Small Repairs from Shawn Colvin... AWESOME!

I wish it weren’t the case but, it’s not everyday that I get a CD from an artist that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can’t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Few Small Repairs. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

One of the nicer things about a CD like this is with this level of talent even if Rock isn’t your favorite style you still can’t help but appreciate the greatness of the artist.

Listen to this CD and I believe you’ll find there's not much to dis-like about it. The songs are inspired, the production is simply outstanding, and Shawn Colvin is clearly in top form. So much so that if you're even mildly into Rock music you'll enjoy this CD.

While the entire CD is outstanding some of my favorites are track 2 - Get Out Of This House, track 4 - You And The Mona Lisa, and track 12 - Nothin On Me

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Sunny Came Home. Wow!
