“Moll’s voice always takes center stage.
“”In the Shadow” is one of my top ten
albums of 1994.
“Moll’s understated ballads never fail to bring
a smile to my face or a tingle to my toe."
“The moody mystery of In the Shadow of a Little White
Lie, which somehow conjures comparisons with both Brecht/Weill and Chris
Isaak, shows how smokily evocative Moll’s voice can be ...”
“Moll is a cut above the west ....”
“... all displaying Moll’s smooth folkie-country
“His was the rising star of the evening.”
“... Moll yodels and croons between rich tenor
tones and falsetto punctuations that establish his voice as the primary
appeal of these songs (especially the infectious “Can You Handle
It?”) and ultimately is what holds Most of All together through
such a breadth of styles."
”... His plaintive voice hits all the right high lonesome
notes on his third solo album Most of All (Fire Ant), a kicked back, self
produced gem of thirteen ballads that straddle the divisions between country
and folk, all underlaid with an understated intelligence not common in
either genre. Picks to click: the ethereal, quasi Tex-Mex “Can You
Handle It”, She Thinks Different Now”, (check out his yodels)
and the bluesy, straight-to-the-point “I Love Your Cookin’”.
"Come What May ' arrived today.....and I'd have to
honestly say that this is one of the best, and most complete albums I'VE
EVER RECEIVED. Simply outstanding my friend.
“Moll has a relaxed and confident baritone in
the Ian Tyson/Gordon Lightfoot range, and as a lyricist, an eye for the
diamond in the rough and the hope after the heartbreak. He has a deft
touch with the humor of the human condition too.” “In “Part
of the Plan” and “Come What May”, Moll’s compassionate
and realistic view of the spiritual dimensions of life appears in tales
of forgiveness and searching. Musical grooves on the disc range from shuffle
to waltz to two-step to ballad.” “Moll has long been one of
the best writers to emerge from the hill country, treating life’s
defining moments with simplicity and grace in his music. This disc shows
him, four decades into his musical career, still continuing to grow and
develop in that path.”
