Even in the early days of her solo career, Maria McKee had a penchant for penning dramatic melodies that seemed more conducive to Broadway than to contemporary radio. In fact, the former Lone Justice frontwoman makes reference to criticisms of that theatrical style in between songs on her Live Acoustic Tour CD.

I am not as big a fan of her album "Life is Sweet," but it has wonderful moments regardless and I couldn't fathom considering it a bad album. The problem with Maria's career has little to do with her own output and much more to do with her fanbase and the terror of modern radio.
She began as a country, rock, pop singer. When she delved into Nine Inch Nails territory in and then into rock opera and theatrics in , and headlong into folk music in , many who had liked her before turned their heads away and sneered, and commented on forums like this one, that she was doomed if she didn't go directly back to her roots. Life is based on change, and so is Maria's musical output, which creates great anticipation for every new album.
It is unfortunate that so much of her original fanbase is so closed minded, and that the much broader fanbase she could have, if this were a kinder world with more intelligent human beings, have not heard any of her amazing newer music, and probably have not even heard of her at all. Is there a better cd than "Late December" that has been released this year? I have great doubt that there is. If you asked me where to start with your Maria collection, I'd ask you to listen to the audio clips and see which clips most appeal to your sense of style.
Then I'd ask you to listen to the cd you purchase all week long, until you're addicted to it, and then go for any of the others. Some of them take a little time to adjust to, but each and every one is rewarding. If you asked me my favorite, I'd be tempted to tell you "High Dive. The reason I've done so, is because "Late December" is so good, so very, very good, so lovely and fun and exciting and sweet, that it is an outrage that she is not one of the best known singers out there today.
Maria's finest work has revealed itself in the past 4 years. She has been so diligent in putting it out there - 3 studio albums and 2 live albums in the past 4 years, after a previous 7 year dry spell of nothing. There was a time when I'd worried she'd retired, and then - poof! She released 3 of the best cds I have heard in my life. They go together like a masterpiece trio.
Has a sweeter song than "Power On, Little Star" been released this year? This decade? My eyes welled up with emotion. I'm afraid of overplaying it, because it is magic. The title track is motown-gospel, and whatever else it is, and the first song of this nature she's had since "I'm Gonna Soothe You. The gentle interludes of her poetry-rap are terrific.
I get "shivering shoulders" hearing this song. I'm glad the Amazon review mentioned that "Destine" was reminiscent of Queen, because those were my thoughts too.
Funny, that this song was the one that least engaged me at first.Pandering to no one, McKee continues to distance herself from her country roots on her sixth studio release, Late December, writing what might be best described as 'pop-ras,' miniature contemporary pseudo-operas sung in open-throated vibrato/5(9).
