Beth calls Back to Love her return to pop music and the successful Nashville tunesmith works in an early-'70s mode throughout the album — you can almost see her grooving away to Abbey Road and Big Star’s #1 Record as she figures out those tricky George Harrison and Chris Bell chord progressions. For legions of tried-and-true fans, this new release represents an exuberant return to the style that distinguished some of her best work and produced some of her biggest hits. For newcomers to the magic and the music of Beth Nielsen Chapman, Back To Love is a bright new chapter in her songbook of life’s revelations. Her musical journey has taken her in a number of directions during the past thirty years, but perhaps none so enjoyable as the contentment on Back To Love.
