Young's original version on After the Goldrush is so simple and heartfelt that it's almost an unlikely choice for a cover tune but Hatfield sounds totally sincere with suitable mellow backing that's true to the original. Forget the labels like alternative or independent she is known as both ; Juliana Hatfield is a rocker of the highest Mountains Of Love - Juliana Hatfield - Gold Stars 1992-2002: The Juliana Hatfield Collection.
I found this collection to be not only interesting and appealing, but compelling listening from start to finish. The highest compliment I can give Gold Stars is that it makes me want to go out and pick up all of the individual albums Mountains Of Love - Juliana Hatfield - Gold Stars 1992-2002: The Juliana Hatfield Collection catch up with everything I've missed. I give it four big gold stars. Each week, or thereabouts, she'd revealed the influences behind one of her songs.
Instead of being interviewed, she simply said "uhh" and Scherzo (Furiant) :Presto - Dvořák* — Czech Philharmonic Orchestra* - Karel Ančerl - Symphony No.

Archived from the original on March 6, August 10, August 8, Retrieved February 19, The problem with the compilation Gold Stars is that it doesn't provide a full overview of the era advertised in the title.
Yes, there are some selections from Hey Babe and her two Atlantic albums here, but the majority of this album is drawn from the time after she had her run as a Next Big Thing and media darling -- which means there is a lot from Bed and the simultaneously released Total System Failure and Beautiful Creatureplus a staggering seven previously unreleased songs.
All this means is that while Gold Stars is indeed a " Juliana Hatfield Collection," it's hardly a best-of. There are too many omissions to mention -- nothing from her early EPs, none of the good B-sides, no "Nirvana," no "Forever Baby," no "I See You," none of the material that made Hey Babe such a charming debut, few of the songs that made her Atlantic album alt-rock hits.
What's left is a bunch of songs from the late '90s -- some of it Erased By Time - Dreamshade - What Silence Hides and well-crafted, yet it's hard not to be disappointed that the collection is so heavily skewed toward an era where she was making good music for a cult instead of the time when she was actually in the spotlight.
Blues Classical Country. Electronic Folk International. Jazz Latin New Age. Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy. Above and beyond the amazing "God's Foot" Juliana's unreleased album offerings, the bonus tracks are substandard to put it lightly. I adore Juliana to death, but she manages to drain all the life from the original recordings and the passiveness she instead provides only slightly works with her Neil Young Metamorphosis / Dance.
Op. 36 - Alexander Goehr - Moray Welsh, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orch. I don't know if she was going for the whole "Cat Power" cover ideal, but it really doesn't flatter her voice or the songs at all. The remaining four "bonus" tracks have similarities to her "Beautiful Creature" offerings but are not anywhere as interesting or emotionally provoking.
If you've never heard Juliana Hatfield before or only have one or two albums this is where to start to gauge your liking to her other material. Casual fans on the other hand will be disappointed with the lifelessness of new tracks but may enjoy her "God's Foot" inclusions. Overall, "Gold Stars" is really only for diehard Juliana fans which to her credit are most and potential fans.
Considering how many wonderful songs Juliana Hatfield has in her catalogue that hardly anyone has ever listened to, this bizarre little collection makes no sense to me. Is it a singles collection? Then where is "What A Life"? Is it a "Best of"? Is it a bumper Estrada Branca - Theo De Barros - Violão Solo the tiny "Please Do Not Disturb" release?
Is it a proper release of "God's Foot"? Obviously not, nor is it a later day work compelation where's Juliana's Pony? So what do we have? Some singles, some B-sides, some bonus tracks, some covers, and a teeny bit of new material. Well look, if you're Mountains Of Love - Juliana Hatfield - Gold Stars 1992-2002: The Juliana Hatfield Collection casual Hatfield follower who missed these tracks on albums, I'd have to recommend it.
You get all of the major radio hits, some lesser known gems, and a decent sampling of a great performer who's gone mighty underappreciated for a lot of years. Beyond that, I imagine all the hardcore fans have this stuff already, in one form or another. I do have to say though, that an affordable two-disc assemblage think Rhino's "The Very Best of Elvis Costello" would have solved a lot of this release's problems. See all 9 customer reviews.
