Ambition is certainly something that Michelle Shocked
is not lacking. Many would also claim that as she is releasing three albums on one day, she is not lacking in foolhardiness either. There have been instances of artists releasing two albums at once (Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Bright Eyes), but three at once
is unique, if unsurprising given Shockeds fondness for trilogies. Given the stylistic differences between the three as well, its small wonder that these are independent releases with no major backing - such a display of generosity would send any company pulling the purse strings tighter than a noose.
As a demonstration of Shockeds ability to move masterfully between genres, Mexican Standoff is very successful. From the off, all the elements previously on show in her Latino-tinged work are present, from the mariachi trumpet to the impassioned Mexican backing vocals, replaced in the second half of the album by her more familiar southern Blues style. --Thom Allott
