This review is from: West [Jewel Case Version] (Audio CD)
I am amazed at the controversy this recording has produced. I first heard 'Learning how to live' on one of those Radio 4 programmes where celebrities play each other strange tunes, and thought 'what on earth is this, it sounds godawful...' but over the next few days the memory of it ate into my subconscious and I just had to go and buy the CD. After a couple of listens, I now think the album is the best thing out for years. It is profoundly simple, hypnotic and gut-wrenching. What more could you want? The rest of Lucinda Williams back catalogue for starters.
