3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite, 20 Dec 2009
This review is from: The Loving Kind (Audio CD)
Its been a while since Nanci released an album of original material , so expectations were high . Overall , its a disappointing album . There are no really stand out , memorable , catchy songs that compare to those on many of her previous releases . The best song is a re-done version of ' One Of These days ' from the ' Little Love Affairs ' album , which in itself indicates the lack of good new songs . James Hooker is greatly missed both as a co-writer , and as a keyboard player . The album lacks real feeling and soul . Too many of the songs are rather ' preachy ' . Social conscience is all very well , but it has to entertain first and foremost .
It also has to be said that Nanci's singing is rather wobbly at times . Not really surprising when you consider the various serious illnesses she has suffered ( and still smoking , the naughty girl ! ) . That wonderful bell like tone and clarity of her distinctive voice is gone . This album is better than
' Clock Without Hands ' , but that's about all . Nanci Griffith is one of my all time favourite artists and songwriters - I never drive back from a gig without being sure to have her albums on my walkman . I'm sure that she WILL make another great album . But this isn't it . God Bless you Nanci .
