Guide Review - Roxie Dean - Ms. America
What a cool collection of songs the album is. The title track "Miss America" says that there's beautiful women everywhere, even if they're not the "Miss America Pageant" types. Previously recorded by Lee Ann Womack, "Why They Call It Falling" has always been a lyrical gem, and Roxie's own take on the song is great. Written with Don Schlitz ("The Gambler") the song has hit written all over it. "A Man Like Bugs," "Just Like A Man" and "Women Know Women" are all hilarious songs that really give me the feeling that the comparison to Roger Miller isn't far off. "Everything I Hear" is a great song about believing what we see while the touchingly beautiful "A Soldier's Wife" (the first single) closes the record. It's a great reminder that war is tough on the home front too.
Roxie Dean's "Ms. America" is well-written and performed collection of songs that rivals anything to come from any of the major record labels.
