Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/31/02, p.136
Ranked # 19 in Rolling Stone's "Women in Rock: The 50 Essential Albums"
Rolling Stone - 4/29/71, pp.40-41
"...Carole King's second album, TAPESTRY, has fulfilled the promise of her first album and confirmed the fact that she is one of the most creative figures in all of pop music..."
Spin - p.101
"King looked into herself and became a brilliant romantic realist."
Q - 9/99, p.130
5 stars (out of 5) - "...if the term singer-songwriter gained currency anywhere, it wouldn't be far from here....King's inward-looking songs spoke of a mature woman going it alone, wounded but hopeful....perhaps it's time to put aside the baggage that TAPESTRY brings with it and celebrate instead a classic rock record..."
Dirty Linen - 12/99-1/00, p.67
"...this is a terrific set of songs...more than a quarter century after they first came to light, they are still fresh..."
Q (Magazine) - p.119
4 stars out of 5 -- "[O]ne of TAPESTRY's greatest charms is its lack of histrionics, with King's unpolished, lived-in voice....There is a real pleasure in hearing the love song in an expert's hands..."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.118
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's hard to think of another album that hit the Zeitgeist quite as emphatically as TAPESTRY."
Paste (magazine) (p.65) - "It's an exquisite, timeless work....TAPESTRY remains Carole King's definitive testimony..."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.96
5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s good as you remember: mellow, exultant, heartfelt and even surprisingly dark, especially with the sad verses of the otherwise upbeat 'Beautiful'..."
