What are the greatest albums of all time? Early Dylan? Sgt Pepper, Abbey Road, White Album? If you don't need hard rock, if you appreciate a pretty voice, folk guitar, intelligent lyrics and emotion, Honesty Room by Dar Williams might become your favorite record of all time. You couldn't accuse Lennon-McCartney of being as bright as Dar or as good at writing lyrics, or of being able to write a story so funny, or so touching, as some of the songs on Honesty Room. Even the weaker songs on this album beat Mr. Kite. When I Was A Boy and The Babysitter's Here are both more beautiful and touching than anything since Pleasures of the Harbor by Phil Ochs. Most everything else is a gem as well. Flinty Kind of Woman is a kick in the butt. If you really love music and have good taste you must do yourself a huge favor and pick up Honesty Room and Mortal City by Dar Williams.
