Breathtaking, 29 Aug. 2011
A CD bubbling with an enthusiasm for life and a warmth of heart that will leave even the most famous curmudgeons giving thanks for the world we live in. Dolly's 65 year-old vocal chords are as effective as ever, and her songwriting skills have been honed with the wisdom of each passing year. The first track, "In the Meantime", sets the tone for the entire album: "Well, we rant and we rave about the good old days/And how different it was back then;/Well, the greatest days we've ever known/Are the days we're livin' in." A marvellous sentiment, and I defy anyone to honestly say that "Better Day" didn't make THEIR day just a little bit better.
