Format: Audio CD
This is another very fine album from the great Mary Gauthier. It's been four years since The Foundling and she has come up with another intensely personal album of excellent, autobiographical songs - this time telling the story of a relationship break-up, the consequent emotional damage and the beginnings of recovery.

As you'd expect, these are songs of real quality. They are beautifully crafted with straightforward, singable tunes which form great settings for the personal, emotionally powerful lyrics. Gauthier's admirers (like me) will know what to expect and won't be disappointed; she's doing what she does best here and doing it brilliantly. While perhaps not quite as raw as she was in The Foundling, this is nonetheless an album of pain seeking balm and redemption, which she expresses as few others can. How You Learn To Live Alone, for example is a profound and oddly beautiful evocation of the withdrawal from life which can follow intense emotional hurt and is an outstandingly honest and insightful song. That slightly fractured voice, her acoustic guitar and a brilliant group of musicians and singers bring all these songs to life wonderfully. The arrangement and production are pitch-perfect, making everything shine without ever swamping it.

I loved The Foundling even though it wasn't a commercial success. Trouble & Love is a bit more accessible, I think, but it shares a lot of what I loved about The Foundling - thoughtful, sincere and meaningful songs with good tunes and great performances. Here we have just eight songs and a total of about 40 minutes of music. No padding or superfluous material; Mary Gauthier has distilled what she wants to say into this eight-chapter story and it's just brilliant.

A wonderful collection of songs of a human in pain but attempting to make sense of life's rich tapestry and move on. Using the song crafting process to work through deep personal pain is no guarantee of artistic success or merit . However Ms. Gauthier (pron. Go-shay) is a mistress of the domain. The ability to document the raw side of life is bread-and-butter to this Louisianian but on 'Trouble and Love' she excels on her previous works which I love.

For me the stand out track is 'How You Learn to Live Alone' and it is surely no coincidence that Buddy Miller, no slouch to the songwriting craft himself, picked that song to feature in ABC's 'Nashville' - shown in the Uk on More4 - on which he was the Musical Producer.

This is a dark album as you would expect given the subject matter but the closing track 'Another Train' at least hints that the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight. Thanks Mary for the songs, sorry for the pain that inspired them, but more power to your elbow. This is a great introduction to the works of Mary Gauthier - she is a warm and engaging performer, a regular visitor to these islands, so enjoy this CD, and others, and find time to see her perform/discuss these songs too!

What a wonderful album this is. Each song is exquisitely crafted...touching, moving, at times sad, but trust me when I tell you, that you will want to play or over and over again. Perhaps it is because the lyrics say in a few short words, what it would take each os us a life time to express.

There is a maturity to this work. It is written with love, not bitterness and only a dash of regret and always with a degree of sophistication.

The first Gauthier album I bought, and I love it. I would like others but the prices are a bit scary, all in all a good album with much melancholy very well written and performed.

Probably Mary's most personal album. Isn't it a shame that the most heartfelt songs seem to need heartbreak. Very interesting to read her comments on her website about the recording of the album and how they achieved the 'live' feel to the music.

A beautifully crafted album packed with raw emotion.Not sure about the first track but the rest is faultless,a really good chunk of folk/americana.Worth the wait,great stuff.

Another haunting in-depth analysis of Mary's train wreck of a love life, put to music. This lady really suffers for her art, and the pain and loss metamorphose into songs of outstanding beauty.
