CD Reviews

Keeps getting better
Bt | Parts unknown | 11/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A couple of years ago, I reviewed this and gave it three stars. Since then, I've come to realize how good this disc really is; it gets better all the time. This was Lucinda's second release, and it's more country/folk than her later stuff. As raw as this is, the songwriting is superb. She has become known as one of the best artists around, and here you see,(and hear) that she had this gift right from the start. A classic."
Early Lucinda Williams - still excellent

"I was in the public library recently, flipping through the CD's. I pulled a handful and listened. What a joy it was to hit this one! I so much love discovering an artist and body of work that I knew nothing of. I feel like an armchair explorer.I have since picked up 6 more of her CD's and enjoy them all. This one is very good. There is an unguarded down-home sound to her voice here that seems to fade in following albums. It is an early work but is more sophisticated than the Ramblin' CD. The addition of background vocals and more instruments fills out the songs a little. But I still enjoy the simple sound of this period.Mike"

"This cd is essential if you are a true Lucinda Williams fan. I Lost It debuts here; (It's also on Car Wheels on a Gravel Road) and you can hear how much her sound has changed and yet remained true to her folk/alt country essence."
