Yelling at Mary (1995)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Mary Karlzen; Genre: Country

Mary Karlzen's small, throaty soprano gets under your skin with Yelling at Mary. But her country rock falls between today's stylistic cracks: too retro for pop radio, too gritty for Top 40 country. And that puts Karlzen in good company with Jim Lauderdale, Kelly Willis, and Nanci Griffith, who are biding their time until the rules change. B
