Muze PNote On her fourth album, Melissa Etheridge continues to write songs with a strong rock base and no sign of giving in to any kinds of trends. With the one-two punch of "I'm The Only One" and "Come To My Window," Etheridge manages to break through to bigger success on her own terms. YES I AM continues with tales of love within the lives of ordinary people while still managing to touch on a few different themes.
Muze PNote "All American Girl" mentions AIDS, while "Talking To My Angel" is about growing up alienated in a small town. An added bonus is the inclusion of "I Will Never Be The Same," a previously unreleased track which was one of a few Etheridge songs featured in the movie WELCOME HOME ROXIE CARMICHAEL.

Artist Overview

Melissa Etheridge made waves in 1988 as one of the few female rockers on the scene; in 1993, she made headlines by coming out as a lesbian. Etheridge's confessional lyrics and raspy voice earned her comparisons to Springsteen and Janis Joplin; she broke through to a pop audience with 1994's YES I AM, featuring the melodic pop of "Come To My Window" and the anthemic rock of "I'm the Only One," each of which spent over a half a year on Billboard's pop charts. In 2000, she revealed that her two children (with her then-partner Julie Cypher) had been fathered with sperm donated by rock legend David Crosby.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (9/24/93, p.93)
- "...[Etheridge's] music has an intimacy not often found in the boys' club of mainstream rock. There's also a darkness that's very appealing, as Etheridge hurls her haunted rasp of a voice through songs of desperate love..." - Rating: B
