iTunes Review

It’s become expected that each Lucinda Williams album with be filled with intense emotional moments comforted by electric guitars gently tremolo-ed, Hammond B-3 organs that purr and pedal steel guitars that weep alongside Williams’ sultry vocal delivery. Blessed is exactly that. It’s yet another focused effort that continues her streak. “Buttercup” says goodbye to an old flame. “I Don’t Know How You’re Livin’” is a song of compassion, frustration and unconditional love. “Born to Be Loved” plays like a classic ‘60s soul ballad. “Seeing Black” is ferocious hard rock, a tribute to Vic Chesnutt (who once wrote a song called “Lucinda Williams”) who committed suicide. Elvis Costello plays a scorching guitar solo to accompany the anger and sadness of losing such a major talent. “Soldier’s Song,” “Blessed,” “Ugly Truth” and “Sweet Love” are pure Lucinda pathos. Don Was’ production brings extra juice to a band of highly skilled musicians — from Greg Leisz’ pedal steel to Rami Jaffee’s organ. The Deluxe Edition includes twelve acoustic demos recorded at Williams’ kitchen table.

Sweet Lucinda

The object of cultish adoration for years, singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams was universally hailed as a major talent by both critics and fellow musicians, but it took quite some time for her to parlay that respect into a measure of attention from the general public. Part of the reason was her legendary perfectionism: Williams released records only infrequently, often taking years to hone both the material and the recordings thereof. Plus, her early catalog was issued on smaller labels that agreed...
