Tigermilk and Sinister are both fantastic and I would recommend them as an entry point. These two albums represent the original version of the band and it seems natural to start at the beginning, especially when the material is so strong. Lots of good stuff in there. However, if you don't want to overwhelm yourself with material, you could dip into what PretzelLogic refers to above as the "pop years," which begin with Dear Catastophe Waitress.
Willis has a new one out, produced by her husband Bruce Robison, and backed by a great band. Kelly wrote six of the ten songs, and while she has benefited from past writing partners, it would seem that she's learned all she needs to from the experience.
And the covers she has chosen are equally fine songs. The title track leads off, and it is just one of her finer moments. A sultry Willis sings of losing her love to an old flame. Fool's Paradise is a sweet country ballad, and Modern World rocks again, and laments the pace of life these days.
Freewheeling is a country weeper with fine fiddle accompaniment. Willis nails the sad side of country again with The Heart Doesn't Know, with a smart lyric delivered with feeling and twang.
All of them from her own pen. Geoff Queen's pedal steel guitar is just right for this two-step. Afternoon's Gone Blind by Karl Straub is a sweet country ballad that Kelly sings perfectly, and more great instrumental talent shines on the fiddle and guitar lead break.
Don't Step Away ends the program on an upbeat note, and leaves you wanting for more. I've called Willis the finest voice in country, and there's nothing here to change that opinion. She continues to mine gold with every release, and Robison's analog production captures a band in fine form.
Our Year is a highly successful follow-up to Cheater's Game, and may even improve on that record's formula. Kelly and Bruce take turns on lead vocals, and as great as Kelly is, Bruce is also an excellent singer, made even better with Kelly's harmonies.
Song selection is impressively tasty. Hangin On is a beautiful love song celebrating the woman that gives "just enough to keep me hangin' on". Kelly takes the lead on the rollicking Motor City Man, the yearning Lonely For You, and the title track, a cover of the Zombies This Will Be Our Year, which turns the baroque original into a sweet, simple country love song.
Oh, and Kelly also updates Harper Valley PTA, backed by the spare, organic, country that is on display all over the record.
The band is perfect at every turn. The arrangements are simple country done with just right combinations of acoustic instruments recorded beautifully. I've said it before, but you just can't go wrong with Kelly Willis.Oct 15, · The artwork’s the same, with photography-class snaps of ponderous young women, but Belle & Sebastian’s eighth album is a far cry from the spikily, literate indie-pop of their early records.
