5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, 30 May 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: These Wilder Things (Audio CD)
Ruth's 2010 album, The Garden, did not really grab my attention. Great voice but songs that were, for me anyway, difficult to get into, pleasant enough, but nothing that really stood out. This album I bought because of Mark Knopfler's involvement, and what a difference a couple of years makes. Still the same unbelievably beautiful voice, but now with songs that catch your attention right from the off and make you want to listen again and again. Country/Americana is probably the best description. Banjos, guitars, keys, flutes, fiddles, and some unmistakable Knopfler electric guitar on "Pockets", which is the best song on the album for me. The title track also deserves to be singled out - just sublime! Any criticism? Only minor. I think the last song on an album should be one of the strongest and most likely to click with the audience. Here the last song isn't really in that bracket, and that's a bit of a shame. Always nice to sign off with something truly special. Ruth Moody is going to be a big name in her field - there's no doubt. A very talented song writer and singer. Glad to have found her.

I would just like to add that The Garden has been in my car CD player again in the last few weeks, and I now like it a lot more than on first listenings! The Garden is clearly a grower!
