Scene REVIEW OF UNDER A DIFFERENT SKY Women in Docs aren't some publicist's creation or a record company executive's idea of what will get on the radio and therefore make money. These are two women from North Queensland, [Australia] whose great joy in life is making music, building a loyal base of fanswherever they play. It's a road may have taken - although not from Townsville [North Queensland, Australia] - and those who enjoy Ani Di Franco, The Waifs and other independent spirits will find plenty to admire in the Docs. In concert their ebullient personalities and infectious harmonies carry the day, but on this first full-length album they add some spice in the production without losing the original spirit. Effervescent folk-pop is their trademark sound in songs such as Crown St, with colours added by Silas Palmer's gypsy-flavoured violin, while Fade Away - Palmer gets country this time - wouldn't be out of place on a Dixie Chicks album. They can rock it up, with an '80's punk-pop feel to Noise Pollution, but quietly bruised contemplation is a more natural element for the Docs, and nowhere better than on the I'll-be-feeling-better-any-day-now resolve of the powerful piano ballad, Alright. There is nothing new about what Women In Docs do but there will always be a place for honest emotions and tunes you can hum delivered with such spirit and conviction. Noel Mengel Courier Mail Fri Aug 23 2002 ...The first single, Crown St, captures their sound perfectly - soaring vocals, jaunty rhythms - but there is plenty more in the tank, from feisty pop-punk (Noise Pollution) to bubbling folk-pop (Fade Away) and an aching piano ballad (Alright) and the string quartet that graces Ricky Lake... ...'there's a homegrown quality... [women in docs] sing about real things and people appreciate that. [they'll] be walking down the street and someone will come up and say, 'that touched me.' And that's what [women in docs] set out to do.' Noel Mengel BAM Courier Mail 17 Aug 2002 SINGLE REVIEW, 'CROWN ST' . . . This is warm, charming and vivacious pop, tinged with enough sugar to keep the tongue tingling yet never so much as to bring on a cringe. Lifted from the ladies' debut album under a differnent sky. Richard Kwong Time Off Aug 21 2002 . . .Crown St has a nice descending chord progression punctuated by crisp acoustic guitars and sympathetic rhythm section, sprinkled with bubbling organ and country fiddle. Beautiful, clear vocal harmonies abound, and it's refreshing to hear these girls singing in Aussie accents. B-side Noise Pollution takes a different tack; a frantic pop tune with wonderfully cheesy synth-pop keyboards, limber drumming and a catchy, nicely harmonised melody. Brett Collingwood Rave Magazine Aug 20 2002 Folksy Brisbane [Australia] duo women in docs have come up with an assured and reassuring pleaser in 'Crown St'. With their lusty gutsy voices telling you 'It's OK, I'm fine' you can very nearly believe it of yourself. The acoustic guitar and touch of fiddle perfectly offset some slightly nasal vocals in a happy comfortable tune. The acoustic version is a little sweeter, and the extra track, 'Noise Pollution' gives you something to jump about to. Renae Spinks Scene Aug 14 2002.
