LOVE SLAVE is the most well-considered, life-affirming collection of Chapman's storied career. A reflective, openhearted work full of dreamy textures and spiritual musings. She also makes room for a simmering tune or two.
Best album of her career.
-- Nashville Scene (October, 1996)
Her songs blend flippant worldly-wise observations with country-blues melodies. Like her singing, they are stamped with a hard-hitting intelligence and vivid personality.
-- Stephen Holden (New York Times)
Long one of Nashville's best renegade songwriters, Chapman has become the kind of artist her fans trust to bring them both good times and insight.
-- Dave Marsh (Playboy)
Anyone who combines smart music with laugh-out-loud wit and heart-tugging poignancy should have a radio station that plays all Marshall, all the time ... We're all slaves to something. Might as well be Marshall.
-- Alanna Nash (Stereo Review)
