CD REVIEW: Tricia Greenwood Ė In Heaven 9.11
By Ben Ohmart - 05/27/2002 - 12:09 PM EDT

Artist: Tricia Greenwood
Album: In Heaven 9.11
CD Review: Usually, I am against 9/11 recordings because I think thereís a vague or blatant sense of profiteering behind them. And those, and any tv movies and etc. that come about, I am against until the Ďwarí is over.

But Iím making an exception in this case, because I firmly believe in Triciaís motive. Also, itís a crying song, not a song to rouse the patriotic flag waving thatís been going on. (Nothing wrong with waving a flag of course, provided youíre accomplishing something else.)

This 3.5 minute song is one which is meant to bleed the tears away from the heartache of this appalling, unnecessary tragedy, and ends with Ďholy holy holy.í Itís a lovely little gothic-type song (from Sunnyvale, CA!) that wonít appeal to everyone. But its acoustic construction and honest love (I would say) may win over those who are usually opposed to the indie tinge of Ďpersonalí songs.

Even more than supporting the artist, I suggest you support the concept of this song and what itís trying to be. Whether or not itís the perfect thing to give a relative of a victim of this outrage isnít for me to say. Perhaps it depends on what sort of tears they keep inside of them. Listen for yourself and judge. But above all, support the spirit of this single. There will be scam artists out there using the numbers 9/11 for selling their own wares, but use your own judgement, and listen to the music before the hype.
