Editorial Reviews

In the Time of Gods, the ninth studio album from beloved singer-songwriter and long-time Razor & Tie mainstay Dar Williams is due for release on April 17, 2012.

Produced by Kevin Killen (who has worked with U2, Elvis Costello, and Peter Gabriel), and featuring a remarkable set of musicians including Larry Campbell, Charley Drayton, Gerry Leonard, and Rob Hyman, the new album is among the most evocative of Williams' career.

As Dar explains it, "I'm interested in power right now," she says. "I'm in my 40s, and I m shocked that the cafe conversations I had in my 20s 'Somebody has to do something!' are now my responsibility. I see people who are actually doing things that you always dreamed somebody would do, and I can help make that a reality. So the stakes are higher, in a good way, but you also see the shadow, the reckless behavior, where a person can lose it all in a weekend."

Format: Audio CD
Dar Williams has been a fixture on the folk scene for so long that it is hard to believe how alive, how relevant, how beautiful her voice and songwriting have remained. Long after many acts succumb to idea exhaustion, she continues to put out vital music. "In the Time of Gods" comes right out of the gate with a stunning mid tempo track "I Will Remember Everything"--in the chorus, she harmonizes with herself, pure and aching, her vibrato reminding me of golden age Natalie Merchant. There is a determination in some of these songs ("The Light and the Sea", "I will Free Myself") that shows a lot of strength, a feeling of purpose and plan that marks DW's best work. Not all is seriousness, there is some uptempo in "Summer Child", although even that song has some serious undertones. Her musicianship is, as always, impeccable; the production full and dreamy without being overly slick. I think that the real strength of this record ultimately is the way that her voice has matured, gained power, and remained lovely and fresh. A strong record from a songwriter that keeps getting better.

I admit it, I love Dar Williams. Not just because she's an outstanding singer-songwriter, but also because our voices happen to mesh and I can actually sing and play along with most of her music without straining my old vocal chords or arthritic fingers. Perhaps even more importantly though, I have unashamedly been interested in Dar ever since I found out we both grew up in Chappaqua, NY and graduated from the same Horace Greeley High School... go Quakers! Of course I graduated in 1964, a few years before she was born, but nevertheless I feel as though I knew her, and that helps me to relate to her lyrics, many of which seem to speak of her childhood. And speaking of lyrics, I have to admit that whenever I first hear a song, I listen to the music in order to figure out how to play it on my guitar. I usually notice the lyrics only later after I can play it reasonably well. With Dar's CDs that is like a gift that keeps on giving. I buy her CDs, enjoy the music for a while, and then get excited about them all over again when I discover what she's actually singing about! So far, I find "In the Time of the Gods" to be musically very appealing. It might well become my favorite Dar CD, but then the fun will begin all over again when I finally listen to the words. Thanks Dar, thank you very much.

Thanks to Amazon recommendations, I have added a new deity to my pantheon of singer-songwriters alongside Mary Chapin Carpenter, Emmylou Harris, and Nanci Griffith. How I managed to miss Dar Williams all these years I can't explain, but "In the Time of Gods" seems the perfect introduction to her stunning work.

It's all there: the assured voice that doesn't need to shout to be heard or understood, the complex melodies that nevertheless sound effortless, the witty and wise lyrics that repay multiple hearings because they just get deeper and more evocative. This is true artistry.

Every song on this recording is a gem, although it wasn't until I heard "Crystal Creek" for the second time that I fully realized what Williams is up to with this tapestry of songs. It sent me back, breathless, to listen to all the tunes more closely, which only opened them up more and revealed (some of) their secrets. This CD is a joy for both the mind and heart, a rare accomplishment.

If you're already familiar with Williams's work, you know what I'm talking about. If you don't, it is my pleasure to introduce her. Get your hands on this CD quick; you'll never want to let go.

I love Dar's music and her observations of life in her lyrics. Have seen her in concert a couple of times, both solo acoustic an with her band. She is one of my favorite artists. I'm always concerned as artists develop over time, for fear that what I enjoy about them will change too much. This album is a wonderful continuation of her artistic development.

While not normally a fan of ballads, the power of her storytelling really pulls you in. Williams grapples with modern issues and struggles filtered through a mythological lens that makes each one seem both magical and timeless. These are deep and beautiful songs to be listened to thoughtfully and patiently. It's well worth the time to do so.

I had heard some clips from the first song on the album and purchased it. Ms. Williams is a very good songwriter and a very good lyricist. The album seems to focused on the production and not on Ms. Williams' . It comes across as very slick which I believe is not her style. The songs and the album left me less than inspired.

Dar Williams goes to the classics and leaves us with some haunting stories that are just as important now as in the time gods and demi-gods lived with humans. I suppose she's proving they are still with us. This is a classic.

What can you say about Dar Williams? She delivers every time. The price was right, delivery fast, and this is a good CD. I always find ONE favorite song on each of her albums, It's like she wrote it just for me.
