4.0 out of 5 stars Its a long way back to the top, 12 Jan 2009
This review is from: Little Honey (Audio CD)
A partial return to form for Williams, who still seems keen to tread the road to overt superficiality and sentimentality - and hence mainstream C&W acceptability - begun on West. Luckily she's ditched the worst of the production values of that album, and the result is a far more enjoyable listen, with some tasty blues driven playing from Pettibone, up back where he belongs in the mix.

In many ways it's a typical Williams blend of rockers and ballads - with a couple of throwaways of course - but what still seems missing in this recent creative blossoming is her ability to write the perfect combination of soaring tune and touching lyric that so typified her purple period from Car Wheels to World Without Tears.

It's significant that the most affecting songs here are the stripped down solo Plan To Marry, and the demo version of Jailhouse Tears - made with her real band - and that tells you all that's still wrong with the shiny, happy new Lucinda - it's all a bit too fancy still, with all the interesting edges knocked off. Good enough for me to keep the faith a little while longer though...
