Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Recorded in her Nashville home, "Intersection" is Nanci Griffith's 20th studio album in almost 34 years. She is accompanied by her long time percussionist and drummer, Pat McInerney and The Kennedeys (Pete and Maura).

Nanci is known as a deeply confessional singer/songwriter and "Intersection" is another chapter in the art of baring her soul. In the title track she sings "I've had a hard life and I write it down". It is an intense but beautiful song with Pete Kennedy's delicately phrased organ reflecting her poignant reading of the lyrics.

Continuing to bare her soul "Bad Seed" is a reflection of her father's rejection of her: "Now that I've gone crazy/With no love of my father/Am I the bad seed he always said I would be?" but delivered with a surprising uptempo arrangement.

"Hell No, I'm Not Alright" captures the anger that she feels about the world: "Hell No, I'm not alright/And neither are you/And neither are we". But the surprising thing about this track is that she evokes the sound of another era, The Crickets. You would swear that you can hear the guitar of Sonny Curtis and the drums of Jerry Allison as she launches into a furious tirade.

Six of the songs on the album are covers so it's not entirely autobiographical but they do sit well with Nancy's own songs in reflecting the mood of the album. The enchanting "If I Could Fly" by the late Blaze Foley proclaims:

"I almost felt you touching me just now
I wish I knew which way to turn and go
I feel so good and then I feel so bad
I wonder what I ought to do"

and Nanci's crystalline voice and a haunting accompaniment of subdued organ, guitar and light percussion evoke an overwhelming feeling of loneliness and despair.

Nancy never disappoints. Always something good, although this may not be her best album ever, it's still money well spent.

As ever, Nancy produces the goods. Few of the old numbers on it but some new ones too. Nancy never fails to deliver.

As with Lovett, I have been a devotee of Nanci for many years. Wonderful guitar player and singer. Great write of terrific songs.
This album is no disappointment...loaded with songs from an experienced voice and observer of the human condition.
Just plain dandy.

Back in the 80s I fell in love with Nanci's music after hearing Outbound plane and I subsequently bought her back catalogue. I continued to buy her releases but in recent years have not (no real reason - just never got round to it).
As I'm seeing her live soon I thought I'd get the new album as she is bound to be promoting it and I wanted to be familiar with the songs.

Its been the only thing on in the car during my daily commute since the release and at first I thought - nothing stand out - but boy has the repetition made it grow on me. I love it!
