CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Holland not only delivers her most intuitively crafted and realized collection to date, but she expands the boundaries and possibilities for American roots music in the process.

PopMatters

Produced by Holland, Wine Dark Sea is a triumph of artistic growth and ambition. Its players both complement and compete with Holland and one another.

As much as some of the songs on Wine Dark Sea fail to reach the level of some of her previous efforts, Jolie Holland deserves praise for the risks she took with it.

American Songwriter

Wine Dark Sea contains some of the most robust and raw material Holland’s ever written

At times I am completely mesmerized and dare I say in love with Jolie Holland's songs. However, she and the band take some indulgences and experiments too far, wearing thin one one's patience and enjoyment of the song. The high moments make this a more than worthy listen. Hopefully my lows will still resonate with other other listeners, but for me, one finger always hovers over the skip button for at least 4-5 tracks.

Alternative country, intimate, troubled and daring.
A real good effort!
