CD REVIEW: Debe Welch – “Crazy!”
By Stacey Board - 10/27/2002 - 02:42 PM EST

Artist: Debe Welch
Album: “Crazy!”
CD Review: “Crazy” is almost a dictionary full of different definitions of the word “crazy” in song. Debe has songs here about being crazy in love, crazy with loss of love, reminding us we’re crazy not to stop and smell the roses, we’re crazy not to be ourselves, delighting in being crazy just living in the moment…among other examples. They are songs that most people can relate to, all put together in a contemporary AAA package.

Debe has a pleasing mellow voice, and fine acoustic guitar based songs. This is also a high quality sounding recording, with nice touches of mandolin and electric guitar here and there. Her writing is laced with humor, especially evident in one of my favorites, “Goodbye American Dream” where she writes ‘uncle Sam you made me what I am, I’m so in debt to you” that is dripping with sarcasm.

I also like “One Kiss’, about that delicious point in the relationship where you’re getting all hot and bothered but still working on getting to know each other ‘one kiss at a time’.

If this is Debe having her midlife crisis, it doesn’t seem to be a bad thing. It sounds like she’s having a pretty good time exploring all the facets of being crazy that she’s discovered.
