Victoria Williams: Musings Of A Creekdipper (Atlantic)

Holly George-Warren, Rolling Stone, 5 February 1998

LOUISIANA-BORN songwriter Victoria Williams may share an audience with the alt-country likes of Wilco and the Jayhawks, but she remains a true outsider artist with an uncategorizable musical vision. Musings of a Creekdipper, Williams' first studio LP since 1994's superb Loose, showcases her singular voice (a twangy soprano equivalent of Neil Young's high tenor), eclectic approach (touches of folk, country, jazz and Tin Pan Alley-style pop) and idiosyncratic yet catchy songwriting.
