A great, but not that great.,
This review is from: Backwoods Barbie (Audio CD)
For the die-hard Dolly fans i'm sure this is a 5/5 all the way but for me, a 28 year old casual Dolly fan its not quite perfect.
The stand out tracks for me are definately the title-track Backwoods Barbie, Tracks of my Tears and I Will Forever hate Roses, which is classic Dolly Parton!
The rest are very good with the exception of two.
Jesus & Gravity is cringeworthy and I can't even listen to it all the way through and i'm surprised it made the album. Only Dreamin' is a very folksy song but very bland and again, i'm sure a lady of Dolly's talents has alot better than this.
The Lonesomes is a great little blues number and Cologne is another of the heart-string pulling songs which she does so well.
Overall, while there's no songs to challenge "Tennessee Mountain Home" its a great album but the two poor ones took the shine off it for me.
Dolly still has an outstandingly beautiful voice and anyone who doesn't like this album doesn't like music!
