Reviews of "Agree to Disagree" from Newspapers / Magazines:
"Christy’s skillful orchestration is ever present in her 6th album Agree to Disagree. She has a wonderful voice with which she paints a picture to put you in the world that she wants you to be in be it happy sad or indifferent. It is only a matter of time before she fully breaks out in earnest, hop on now." ~ Origivation Magazine
"Christy Jefferson will surprise fans with this CD, as she changes from folk rock and singer/songwriter fare to out-and-out rock. It is pop enough to be listenable, but powerful enough to have feeling. Her voice is stronger…and her songwriting seems to have more of an edge. “Naughty Girl” features the lines “Who’s your favorite naughty girl? Sweet as a lie, you got me crawlin’ on the floor.” A song Madonna would kill for. The opening track starts with a drum leading into a strong bass line, then Jefferson comes in singing “Little pieces/Little pieces are marchin’ down the street…” It’s indie heaven, and that straight-ahead vibe continues through all 11 tracks. Even the one cover, Paul Simon’s “Red Rubber Ball,” gets a harder arrangement than the pop original. The softer tunes, like “Love Song for the Human Race” and “Sunshine,” have Jefferson singing while accompanied only by acoustic guitar on the first song and piano on the second. But both build to a strong finish as other instruments come in." ~ The Morning Call
