Reseña de álbum

It isn't surprising that Lucinda Williams' level of craft takes time to assemble, but the six-year wait between Sweet Old World and its 1998 follow-up, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, still raised eyebrows. The delay stemmed both from label difficulties and Williams' meticulous perfectionism, the latter reportedly over a too-produced sound and her own vocals. Listening to the record, one can understand why both might have concerned Williams. Car Wheels is far and away her most produced album to date, which is something of a mixed blessing. Its surfaces are clean and contemporary, with something in the timbres of the instruments (especially the drums) sounding extremely typical of a late-'90s major-label roots-rock album. While that might subtly alter the timeless qualities of Williams' writing, there's also no denying that her sound is punchier and livelier. The production also throws Williams' idiosyncratic voice into sharp relief, to the point where it's noticeably separate from the band. As a result, every inflection and slight tonal alteration is captured, and it would hardly be surprising if Williams did obsess over those small details. But whether or not you miss the earthiness of Car Wheels' predecessors, it's ultimately the material that matters, and Williams' songwriting is as captivating as ever. Intentionally or not, the album's common thread seems to be its strongly grounded sense of place — specifically, the Deep South, conveyed through images and numerous references to specific towns. Many songs are set, in some way, in the middle or aftermath of not-quite-resolved love affairs, as Williams meditates on the complexities of human passion. Even her simplest songs have more going on under the surface than their poetic structures might indicate. In the end, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road is Williams' third straight winner; although she might not be the most prolific songwriter of the '90s, she's certainly one of the most brilliant.

Welcome to Lucinda

If you're not familiar with her, this is a great place to start with Lucinda Williams. Any album containing tracks that make an ex-girlfriend cry in your presence when you play them is worthwhile. "Car Wheels" is just this kind of album--and it defines the genre of "Alternative Country."

One of the best albums of the 90's

Car Wheels on a Gravel Road is an amazing record with consistently great songs. Right in Time is a classic song of love that has gone right. The title track moves into the country rock tradition with tremendous success. 2 Cool 2 Be 4-Gotten and Drunken Angel shine as do Can't Let Go and Metal Firecracker. Really, the album has no weak songs and I can't recommend it higher. If you like this, you might also like Heartbreaker by Ryan Adams and any other release from Lucinda. It is a pity Itunes doesn't have Lucinda's self titled debut, which is another amazing record. They really should, and it too deserves 5 stars.

"We're Only Made Of Concrete And Barbed Wire!"

It was "Passionate Kisses" by Mary Chapin Carpenter that led me to the work of Miss Lucinda Williams and "Car Wheels On A Gravel Road" is one CD I just "Can't Let Go!" { I have played and recommended this "Metal Firecracker" of an album to so many people!} Lucinda, You had me from the first twangy tempos & wonderous words of "Right In Time!" (It's almost as if Janis Joplin met up with the Rolling Stones in a crummy juke-joint down to Lake Charles, Louisiana; and they all got drunk and sang Hank Williams and Muddy Waters tunes and somebody recorded it on a beat-up old 8-track and it was just unearthed yesterday!) Lucinda Williams may think she "Lost It"; but "Car Wheels" finds her & her magnificent backing musicians on the right "Gravel Road!" Find your "Joy" here! Grimmbo.

En sus comienzos Lucinda Williams se dedicaba a interpretar versiones acústicas de clásicos del folk y el blues, pero su carrera dio un vuelco substancial cuando comenzó a escribir su propio material. Si bien la crítica se deshizo en elogios ante su maravilloso álbum debut homónimo de 1988, Williams tuvo dificultades para dar continuidad a su trabajo debido a una serie de conflictos personales y profesionales. Recién en 1998, con la edición del aclamado Car Wheels on a Gravel Road (recompensado incluso...
