Rolling Stone - 5/1/97, p.543 Stars (out of 5) - "...a voice that Nashville would die for: powerful but understated, emotionally trasparent and achingly irresistible....music this subtle and self-effacing is rare in any category....combining the hooks of pop melodicism with the purity of mountain spirituals..."
Entertainment Weekly - 3/28/97, p.66"...The key is Union Station's deft and impeccably layered ensemble playing, which blends the instrumentation and inflections of bluegrass with the sophistication and dignity of other forms. Krauss...is as riveting as a whisper in the ear..." - Rating: B+
Q - 6/97, p.1343 Stars (out of 5) - "...this....crystalises all that is good about Alison Krauss & Union Station..."

Twenty-five-year-old Alison Krauss has singlehandedly revived popular interest in bluegrass, and SO LONG SO WRONG finds her own popularity at a peak: It follows up her 1995 collection NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU, which sold an astonishing 2 million copies. SO LONG SO WRONG sticks to the combination of contemporary bluegrass ballads and traditional songs that has proved so successful for Krauss. The slower songs provide ample room for her to display her quietly haunting singing. On songs like "It Doesn't Matter," "Find My Way Back to My Heart" and "Happiness" (co-written by Krauss' brother Viktor), Krauss keeps her clean, clear soprano deceptively simple and unadorned; she doesn't overpower the listener or rely on gimmicky vocal effects.
Union Station guitarist Dan Tyminski is an excellent bluegrass vocalist in his own right, and he sings lead on three of the album's best cuts, including a fine version of the traditional song "I'll Remember You, Love, In My Prayers." The one instrumental, "Little Liza Jane," doesn't suffer from its lack of vocals. For just as much as the members of Union Station can sing, they all can play. Mandolinist Adam Steffey squeeze more notes into the 1 minute and 43 seconds of "Little Liza Jane" than most mandolinists could play in a song twice as long. And Krauss--who first rose to prominence as a contest winning fiddler--more than holds her own.
