Product Description

Product Description

Building upon her bluegrass roots, and using her unerring knack for identifying great songs, Alison Krauss has created a branch of popular music all her own. On this album, the pure emotion of her voice and her exquisite acoustic arrangements reach new heights.

Amazon.co.uk

When you possess a great pop voice, it's inevitable that you'll someday make a pop album, and Alison Krauss has finally made hers. Instead of bidding for radio airplay with the extravagant, extroverted pop of Shania Twain, Trisha Yearwood, or Celine Dion, Krauss has crafted an intimate, understated chamber-pop album reminiscent of Joni Mitchell's Blue or Rosanne Cash's Interiors. The material comes from such mainstream-pop writers as Michael McDonald, Todd Rundgren, Allen Reynolds, and Danny O'Keefe, but Krauss the producer gives the songs a distinctive spin. She layers the harmonies of her regular Union Station band, the Cox Family singers, pianist Matt Rollings, drummer Jim Keltner, and mandolinist Sam Bush to create a lush, hushed sound that's neither traditional bluegrass nor electric country-pop. Krauss multi-tracks her own fiddle parts and blends them with Jerry Douglas's Dobro to create an unorthodox string-quartet sound. In this setting her tender, translucent vocals capture that moment when a relationship is unravelling before the lovers are ready to let it go. --Geoffrey Himes

There is simply no other word to describe Alison Krauss, her voice is unqiue and undoubtably one of the most beautiful you could ever wish to hear. This CD includes 11 brilliant tracks to suit any die hard blue grass fan. Track 3 'It wouldn't have made an difference', and Track 7' Ghost in this House' are undeniably the two most awesome recordings on this CD, Alison sings in a way which will sweep the listerner along, and the best way to listen to any Alison Krauss CD is to sit back, close your eyes and just listen, the listener will never find anything close to this kind of perfection no matter how hard they try. The final track 'Dreaming my dreams with you', sung with backup by Doll Parton, a country queen herself, this track is a superb ending to a superb CD and will leave the listener wanting more. All in all 'Forget about It', holds 11 amazing tracks, each one as good as the next, it simply just gets better, if your thinking of buying a CD, make it this one, the listener will not be dissapointed in any way.

You know when you read or hear those reviews that go on and on about how wonderful this is or how amazing that is ?
Well, this album by Alison Krauss IS one of the most beautifully sung and played albums EVER and does warrant a glowing, wordy review !
Her voice is second to none and her playing (fiddle) is every bit as soulful and heartwrenching as her singing...and that's saying a MOUTHFUL !
BUT...I won't go on. You should be listening to this album. Buy it NOW !
WARNING: If you have recently (or ever) gone thru a sorrowful breakup with someone, this album will either help heal your soul or drive you out onto the ledge.

Format: Audio CD
Alison made her reputation as a bluegrass singer and musician but this album, excellent as it is, doesn't contain any bluegrass music. Instead, Alison (who also produced the album) has gone for a contemporary country sound, albeit one that includes mandolin and dobro among the instruments used. Some of Alison's albums are credited to Alison Krauss and Union Station. This is billed as a solo album, yet all the members of Union Station (Barry Bales, Ron Block, Jerry Douglas and Dan Tyminski) feature heavily in the musician credits.
As we've come to expect from Alison, the album is dominated by ballads that suit her voice ideally - if you want up-tempo songs, forget about Alison Krauss. Among the songs, Michael McDonald wrote or co-wrote three (Empty hearts, It don't matter now, That kind of love) while Todd Rundgren wrote It wouldn't have made any difference. Country music fans may recognize Dreaming my dreams with you (recorded in the seventies first by Crystal Gayle, then by Waylon Jennings) and Ghost in this house (one of Shenandoah's big hits of the late eighties). These two country oldies are my favorite tracks here. Alison performs them as well as the other versions I've mentioned. Dolly Parton and Lyle Lovett provide harmony vocals on Dreaming my dreams with you.
While I generally prefer Alison's early music, this album provides proof that Alison can match the best contemporary country singers.

This is my first Alison Krauss album - bought entirely on spec at that - and proving to be well worth the gamble. Easy listening throughout, Alison's soft voice blends well with the country influenced melodies and rythms. The opening three tracks kick the album off to a good start and those old enough or ecclectic enough in tatste to recall Todd Rundgren's original of 'It wouldn't have made any difference' won't be disappointed with this cover version. High spots of the second half are the haunting (no pun intended) track 7 'Ghost in this house' and final track 'Dreaming my dreams with you'. Some thought - provoking lyrics, interesting instrumentation and melodies. Time to investigate Ms Krauss' back catalogue.

Now,I'm not American, and hadn't heard of Alison Krauss beforethe track "It Dosn't matter" appeard on the Buffy TheVampire Slayer soundtrack (which is fantastic) Finding this CD at an English libary was a suprise as 1. Our libary never stocks music made before 1990! and 2. This album is unavailable in the UK. odd. Maybe somebody from the libary bought it and realised just how great it is , and made it available to everyone... dunno. But im sure as hell glad they did. This album is fantastic, track 3. a cover of It Wouldn't Of Made Any Differnece, is fantastic (my dad has the original-Yuk!) and then the other highlight track 7. Ghost in this House, is great, Krauss' voice really takes off. and the rest of the album continues to be fantastic, ending sweetly with another cover Dreaming My Dreams With You" upon borrowing this from the libary, i immediatly imported this album as it really is worth any money you pay for it. Krauss' voice is outstanding, and this is a perfect album, for anyone with any taste of music, the words, music and vocals are simply perfect, there is now, only one thing left to do. Buy it, plain and simple. Perfect.

Renowned for her Bluegrass music and the support of her band Union Station Alison Krauss followed up her amazing album So Long So Wrong with something a little different.

This album contains a collection of mostly Pop standards a good number of which have been done before, but none so beautifully. Most members of Union Station are present on this album but merely as musicians and they show of their full musical diverstiy with the use of more modern instruments and a drum kit.

Alison's voice is as amazing as ever and she makes each and every track her own.

For me the stand out track is the Todd Rundgren Classic, "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference," a song also covered by Manhatten Transfer, but the version here just blows it's predecessors away.
