Bittersweet Country Rock with an Edge
I've been hooked by Kathleen Edwards from the moment I put this cd in my car. The songs range from the intensely personal 'Sweet Little Duck' to the hard luck story in 'Six O'Clock News'. Edwards must be keeping her eyes wide open while traveling through life, because it shows in her writing and vocal expression. Her voice can slash and mock in 'Westby' and 'One More Song', and evoke great sadness and loss in 'Mercury' and 'National Steel', while the same can be said for the instrumental work by the band. Here is a woman that reminds me of a mix between Neil Young, the late Gram Parsons,and the introspection of Joni Mitchell. With no doubt I look forward to hearing more from Edwards in the future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
