Music Review: 'Kim Richey' (1995)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Kim Richey

Newcomer Richey (whose ''Those Words We Said'' has already been recorded by Radney Foster and Trisha Yearwood) comes to her debut with a nearly seamless integration of Tom Petty-ish pop and the hybrid country of Yearwood and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Richey may not be as distinguished a vocalist as her colleagues, but as a writer, she's a master of the hummable, soaring chorus (''Sweet Mysteries'') and fist-in-the-glove lyric (''That's a Lie''). B+
