AllMusic Review by

Trailing five years behind the release of Other Voices, Other Rooms, Nanci Griffith's second collection of covers is that rare sequel which actually surpasses its predecessor. Boasting an even stronger and wider-ranging set of songs, Other Voices, Too (A Trip Back to Bountiful) captures the singer at her most radiant and expressive -- moving easily from the Stephen Foster perennial "Hard Times Come Again No More" to '60s pop hits like "You Were on My Mind" to British folk-rock chestnuts like Richard Thompson's "Wall of Death" and Sandy Denny's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" -- Griffith stamps each of these 19 tracks with her own indelible signature, revitalizing not only her material but herself in the process.
