Album Notes
"Every once in a while you hear someone who shakes your core. I heard Cynthia Carle perform one song at last month's TopTune (each writer performs a song prior to the game) and she blew me away. Her songs couldn't ALL be that good, I thought (I am a fool). I went home and sampled her other songs. She is way better than I thought. Wickedly funny, super smart and can write a song that breaks your heart. "
--Bill Berry's MUSIC NEWS

“Cynthia Carle combines a rare intelligence, a political eye that could open an oyster at sixty paces and a nearly incomparable knowledge of her way into and around a song; plus she can sing. Yikes, can she sing.”
--Curtis Armstrong

About the twisted musical CHRISTMAS SMACKDOWN, created by Cynthia Carle and Mark Nutter:

"A feast of funny holiday songs. Among the Cynthia Carle highlights: a very amusing song called ‘Angels,’ suggests that guardian angels are assigned rather like seats on an airplane. 'The Sky Mall Song,’ is an ode to the time-killing cornucopia of high-tech, wholly useless goodies at 30,000 feet. And then there's 'Severed Swedish Heads' (they bled and bled and bled)."

"So damn sick and funny. Among the Cynthia Carle songs is a romantic one about snuggling with your baby by the fire that turns out to be because the girl is an arsonist. Who knew Baby Jesus had a pet dinosaur named Glenn, and Southern racists think Jesus is the sweetest little Jewboy in the world, whose nose is still small. And Santa, the jolly old elf, is just in it for the insurance. You get the idea that these are not your typical fuzzy warm Christmas carols, although there is a song about having a furry little Christmas, with real Furries. "
--Eva Heinemann, HI DRAMA (New York)

"Great wit and irreverence. Original music by Cynthia Carle ran the gamut of styles and topics: Ranging from sweet folky tunes on a ukulele, to operatic, to noir jazz, to German drinking song, and with truly smart and witty lyrics. It was a lovely evening of theater full of fun and conviction amidst dysfunction. The show ran far too briefly."
--Vanessa Cate, STAGE RAW (Los Angeles)
