by Pam Tillis

A little Dixieland touch on Matraca Berg's sultry "Crazy By Myself"; a brisk talking blues shuffle on "Bettin' Money on Love"; two great Leslie Satcher-penned heartbreakers (the eerie opener, "Something Burning Out," with a touch of Twin Peaks guitar, weeping pedal steel, aching twin fiddles, and a lyric that Tillis delivers with wrenching restraint; plus a classic honky-tonk reminiscence of ill-fated love in the lilting "That Was a Heartache") -- these are but a few of the essential elements of a masterpiece called Rhinestoned by Pam Tillis. Big-voiced Pam can belt with anyone, but she's mastered the punch to the gut that a carefully nuanced phrase can deliver. Having done some acting in her day, she now employs her thespian instincts in service to smart, subtle vocal drama. Maybe it's no coincidence, then, that she's singing with a freedom not always apparent in her early years. Her buoyant take on the uplifting closer, "Over My Head," an is at once the perfect approach to the song's spiritually resonant lyrics and the ideal counterpart to the fanciful, Irish-tinged arrangement. Pam teams with another always-welcome old pro, John Anderson, on one of the album's most engaging tunes, "Life Sure Has Changed Us Around." Abundant in riches, Rhinestoned shines brightly indeed.
