Children Running Through continues the remarkable creative evolution that's quietly established Griffin as a vital and singular musical force. It also belies her persistent sensitive-singer-songwriter image—a limiting perception that fails to fully convey the emotional depth and breadth of her songwriting or the emotive power of her fluid, soulful singing. Indeed, the new disc's 12 Griffin originals maintain a timelessly truthful resonance that echoes a variety of styles, most notably the classic R&B and gospel music that have long been a source of inspiration for the artist.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.74)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is Griffin's voice -- its clear, natural force and her disciplined way with vibrato -- that hits you first..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.72)
- "The most breathtaking son is 'Trapeze,' a harmony-rich Emmylou Harris duet that's a paradigm of Griffin's empathic alt-country." -- Grade: A-

Q (p.125)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Griffin's voice is a startlingly expressive instrument, pitched somewhere between the feather-light intimacy of Norah Hones and the gospel-tinged populism of Eva Cassidy."

Uncut (p.82)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]er songwriting here...demonstrates a depth and majesty previously absent from her work."

Dirty Linen (p.72)
- "These songs are well sung, the lyrics are smart, and they're set to attractive arrangements....A thoughtful, carefully delivered contemporary folk album."

No Depression (p.82)
- "CHILDREN RUNNING THROUGH is all about Griffin reveling in the suddenly -- startlingly -- enormous power of her singing."

Rolling Stone 7 of 10
Patty Griffin is better known as a songwriter than as a singer of her own songs, thanks to a long run of country and pop covers by bigger artists, including Linda Ronstadt, Dixie Chicks and, bizarrely, Jessica Simpson. But it is Griffin's voice -- its clear, natural force and her disciplined way with vibrato -- that hits you first on Children Running Through, in the spare, sultry bravado of the opening song, "You'll Remember." It is, like many of the songs here, a good riddance to trouble and those who start it, and the virtually empty arrangement -- walking bass and brushed drums -- gives Griffin plenty of room to show off the brassy determination underlining the country-comfort delicacy of her singing. Some of the sass here is on the outside. Encouraged by snorting saxes and ash-can drumming, Griffin shows how much blues singer she has in her, minus the affectations, in "Stay on the Ride." And she's no barn-dance wallflower in "Getting Ready," which comes with jolts of guitar distortion and even feedback. The affirmation in "Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)," a hymn of thanks to Martin Luther King Jr., needs a stronger, truly-gospel voice. But the Sandy Denny-like way Griffin holds notes and words for fighting emphasis in "I Don't Ever Give Up" is beautiful moxie. - David Fricke
