Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - p.106
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Her] third album unveils deceptively sharp takes of hearts in distress, implying fierce emotions just under the surface."
Uncut - p.100
3 stars out of 5 -- "Merritt's pure voice is mostly accompanied by gentle piano..."
Dirty Linen - p.86
"There's longing in the melodies and joy as well, connection and disconnection..."
No Depression - p.66
"[T]he conversational phrasing, intimacy of the material, and spare, airy arrangements suggest an artist with nothing to hide and nothing to prove."
Q (Magazine) - p.136
3 stars out of 5 -- "'[I]t's on the title track, a finely crafted meditation on love's bewildering ways, where she really finds her own voice, setting her apart from the pack."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.59
"[S]he competently mixes elements of folk, rock, and soul -- embracing her inner Joni Mitchell on sparse lullabies..."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.111
4 stars out of 5 -- "Here her wonderful voice, smooth and warm with throaty twang and unforced power, has free rein to do what it does best on 11 fine new songs..."
Harp (magazine) (p.100) - "Merritt's songwriting, allusive and glancing, is stronger than ever, and her voice remains one of a kind, as raspy and reedy as it honeyed..."
Paste (magazine) (p.70) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[B]y far her most introspective to date....Merritt is a force to be reckoned with as a vocalist and songwriter in any genre she approaches."

Introduction by: Tift Merritt.
Photographer: Mark Borthwick.
The title of Tift Merritt's third album refers to her move from Tennessee to Paris following the release of 2004's TAMBOURINE. Ironically, settling in another country has allowed Merritt to write some of the most purely country- and folk-oriented songs of her career, with less of the rock and 1960s R&B influence of her earlier albums. Full of simple, spacious arrangements and heavy on minor-key ballads, ANOTHER COUNTRY is reflective without sounding downcast, with songs such as the wistful title track and the delicate opener, "Something To Me," providing the template for most of the album. Another highlight is the quietly stunning closer, "Mlle. Tendresses," a cocktail lounge ballad sung in French that recalls the commingling of country, pop, and cabaret on k.d. lang's INGENUE.
