"McComb writes very personally delivering deceptively plain lyrics in a lovely voice that glides from contralto richness to silvery soprano. Her guitar playing is a marvel of spare technique, rich counterpoint adding texture to lyrical images... the intimacy she brings forth is both chilling and ennobling."
The Boston Globe

Carol''s 1990 Kaleidoscope release Tears Into Laughter earned praise from BILLBOARD MAGAZINE: "This is a remarkably well-written, well-played, and emotionally moving album. McComb, who wrote all 11 songs, is wise without being preachy, and she sings with a quiet conviction and urgency."
