AKUS go from strength to strength
on 15 November 2005
15 of the most sublime songs you will have heard all year. Being a 'country' or bluegrass fan, one takes alot of stick but I wish I could impress upon those who mock, how varied country can be and in Alison Krauss you'll find tub thumping fine sassy beats like 'Unionhouse Branch', songs of the most bittersweet regret like 'Goodbye is all we have' and 'Doesn't have to be this way' and the awe inspiring vocal heights displayed on 'Living Prayer'. I took a friend new to the AKUS phenomena, to see them play in Manchester this September; she was rightly blown away by the quality of the performance and Alison's angelic voice. I am all out of superlatives to describe how rich this album is; if only one person reads this and buys the album, I'll be pleased to have spread the word. Go on... you won't be disappointed!
