Odd for Kingsway to decide to release this 1992 album now that (a) REX has its own arm here and (b) in the States this album is called 'Decapitated Society' but I'm glad they bothered. Detroit-bred Jan is one of the leading Christian exponents of that nu-folk/acoustic revival thing which takes in everyone vaguely roots-orientated. Jan has a voice pitched somewhere in the Suzanne Vega/Tracey Chapman mould, her accompaniments here are usually solely her own deftly played acoustic and her songs are excellent, usually insightful vignettes which recall T-Bone Burnett's oft-quoted observation that you can write about the light or the truth you see in that light. Jan prefers the latter and her songs like "Honeymoon" tracing the marriage of two young lovers through the years to an evening when they reflect on how their union has endured a life of trials and blessings; and the opener "Someone" where she asks the question about the media "so which one is really better, wolves in sheep's clothing or wolves who look like wolves?" A consummate new singer/songwriter.

I have Jan Krist's "Decapitated Society" album from before it was released (1991), and have just recently learned she's still around and playing -- what joy! Anyone reading this who enjoys Indigo Girls or Joni Mitchell will play this over and over again!
