The Soldiers Wife is a cathartic album powered by the songs of ten female artists. Singing from several perspectives, they open up both the ears and the minds eye into experiences only had by some.
It is an eclectic mix of feeling, both strong and varied, stretching hands out, holding the bonds tight between listener and singer. Broadening the spectrum outwards and across ways and into itself, building understanding of the unfathomable, and so joining everyone who listens with all those who have come and gone before, with those who have lived through it.
This album is very affecting, it is tinged with sadness but it is also an entwined story of strength, one that breeds strength in others. Listeners should remember this album when they forget that they are connected to everyone else. (SP)
