Allmusic said of the album, “There’s something appealing in hearing Etheridge try a number of new sounds: not everything fits but the restlessness is admirable”, and awarded the album three stars. Rolling Stone also awarded the album three stars, and wrote “As always, her voice can walk a fine line between passionate and histrionic, but when she dials it back on the smoldering ‘Like A Preacher’, it’s clear that this honeymoon might be the start of a whole new her.”
“4th Street is in Leavenworth,” says Melissa Etheridge.
That’s her home town in Kansas, pop. 35,000, known mostly for its prison and Army base.
And it’s the place evoked in the title, and title song, of 4th Street Feeling, the 12th studio album of her singular, 25-year recording career.
“It’s kind of the main drag, starting in the old downtown,” she says of her old stomping grounds. “I remember the first McDonald’s in town there. The town’s pretty small. That’s where we would hang out, the Burger King parking lot, the football games. Everything was on Fourth Street. That’s where we would cruise. And then it turns into Highway 7 that goes out of town to Kansas City.”
That’s exactly where the album opens, with the bluesy, harmonica-spiced “Kansas City.” The scene is set with Etheridge driving in “my old man’s Delta 88,” reliving road-trips fueled on “Lucky Charms, Tic Tacs and Mom’s amphetamines.” Only this time, the woman who left Leavenworth for Hollywood years ago is taking herself — and us — home. It’s a trip to where she’s from. But also a trip to where she’s headed. Click for more
