Movie Reviews

Oh God my heart is ready now!
It's Gold I Tell ya | Cali | 01/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At the time this was coming out I went to see Chris at a local club. The only problem was the boneheads that owned it forgot to advertise so It was Chris, me my 5 friends and about 10 other people. He played most of this collection along with solo version of songs from other cds and I have to say it was as emotional a music experience as I've ever had. When I put this cd on it is so alive and warm that I go back to that night. So I use this rarely. Buy This. Drop that hammer and Run!"
R.I.P. we will miss you.

"A piece of our hearts have gone with the beloved Chris Whitley. I leave this comment here, because this is where it all started. If you go to Chris Whitley's official website you will see why as well. Also, please read the touching eulogy his daughter, Trixie has left.
I feel like I have lost a friend. A hero. A mentor. An inspiration in the truest form.
We will miss you, Chris."
Powerful, Personal, and Profound

"The power of Chris Whitley's talent is on full display here. This album contains a broad tapestry of themes and motifs that deepen after almost every listen. Whitley's compositions are first rate, and his playing is more than up to the task. This is clearly the work of a true artist, someone who takes what he does very seriously and who respects his audience.

Most impressive."

"I lost my copy of Dirt Floor, along with a few other good albums, a while ago, and while i miss them, the others dont make me feel like i feel when i rememer Dirt Floor. Today, amongst tongue-in-cheek rock and pocket-money-grabbing pop its easy to think that serious music is anal, too serious, that it misses the light-hearted point of popular music (in the general sense). But let this album stand as a testament to the fact that music can - its not a cheesy cliche - have a beauty that seeps deep into your soul like gravy into a yorkshire pudding, and makes the mundane give way to the divine (like gravy in a yorkshire pudding. Let it stand as a testament to the fact that human beings are not animals or machines or consumers or numbers or just things, but something deep and mysterious. Let it stand as a testament to the power of simple honest things that feel like reality smiling back. If that sounds over the top, you havent listened to Dirt Foor. If you've listened to it and still think it sounds over the top, you havent HEARD it (note "white men cant jump" debt). That i no longer have this album makes me feel sad, because its beauty it huge, and we all need beauty. Forget about stardom, forget about genre, forget about cool, forget about rockin', forget about fashion. Dirt Floor is just so beautiful. Thats all i have to say."
