Product Description

Lucinda Williams does anguish so well it’s easy to forget that Happy Woman Blues is not just the title of her 1980 album, but also the way she thinks of herself. That identity comes across full force in Little Honey, the follow-up to 2007’s heavily brooding West, where her melancholy voice seemed to creak with sadness. Here, a full-throated Williams revels in the rejuvenation of her engagement to her manager/co-producer Tom Overby, over whom she’s positively giddy on "Real Love." Her newfound bliss opens the floodgates to a musical revival, as well, since Little Honey, her ninth studio album, ranks as one of her most diverse, ranging from pounding rock ‘n’ roll (the raw sex of the title track) to the Hank Williams-ish country blues of "Well, Well, Well," to "Knowing"'s ‘60s soul. But some of the finest writing appears on "Plan to Marry," as thoughtful a meditation on love as any time-honored sonnet. Just when Williams seems to have run the gamut, she pulls out a Stones-y (via Louisiana) cover of AC/DC’s "It’s a Long Way to the Top" as the punctuation mark. It all makes for a rollicking ride with one of roots-rock's most unpredictable and passionate artists. -– Alanna Nash

Little Honey is a much happier album the Lucinda's last album, West, although I'm not sure it's better, it's just as good just the same.
The album kicks off with "Real Love" a rocking, happy tune. It's something we've never heard from Lucinda, then it goes into the country-tinged ballad "Circles and X's" which was actually written over twenty years ago and I'm not sure why she hadn't used it before, and she slips into a very bluesy "Tears Of Joy" talking about playing games but now she has met a man to whom she loves, then comes the loud, beautiful "Little Rock Star", now this is one of the highlights, most definitley, it may even be the best song on the album. "Honey Bee" is a fast raunchy rocker, it is fun although a bit silly.
"Well Well Well" comes next and I must say, it's a bit too country for my taste. It's an okay song, but again just not my taste. If "Well Well Well" was a disappointment, "If Wishes Were Horses" made up for it and then some! This is my second favorite next to "Little Rock Star". But then things take a turn downward when we get to "Jailhouse Tears", which again is an okay song but I think adding Elvis Costello's vocals wasn't a great idea, but the song itself is okay. So now we're on "Knowing" and I must say, it's a beautiful little love song and "Heaven Blues" is a wonderful little blues song about going to Heaven, the music is almost too happy for lyrics that are so sad. "I'm gonna see my mother up in Heaven..."
"Rarity" is another beautiful love song and "Plan To Marry" is about how "love is a sword" and a song for those who love, believe in love and why people marry.
"It's A Long Way To The Top" is a cover and it's a great rock n' roll closer to an awesome Lucinda Williams album! 5 stars.

Format: Audio CD
Lucinda Williams has been on an incredible creative spurt in this decade. After releasing only 5 albums in 20 years (1979-1998), this is Lucinda's 4th studio album in just this decade (5 albums altogether when you include the "Fillmore" live album from 2005). In early 2007 Lucinda released the devastating "West" album, dealing with the passing away of her mother and relationships gone south (a common theme to many of her albums). About 18 months later, Lucinda comes back with this release.

"Little Honey" (13 tracks; 64 min.) brings a more uplifting mood of Lucinda, now apparently in a happy relationship (her producer). The album starts off with a rousing "Real Love" but after that, it becomes a very uneven affair, regretfully. Case in point is "Tears of Love", a lazy song that goes nowhere, as is the case with "Jailhouse Tears", which sounds like a throwaway song. The acoustic-driven "Little Rock Star" shines, though. The standout track on here is the 8+ min. slow-burner "Rarity", which reminds me of Lucinda of old. The album closes with a curious (and ineffective) cover of AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top", it's not bad as such but it just makes me wanna reach back to the original AC/DC song.

In all, this is a very uneven album. For one, its running time is way too long. Cut out about 3-4 of the least effective songs and instead you'd have a much stronger set. That said, Lucinda Williams is a fabulous live act. I've seen her in concert before and I can only hope that I'll have a chance to see her on the tour supporting this album.

In 2002, Time Magazine proclaimed Lucinda Williams "America's Best Songwriter", and this new collection from Ms. Williams further solidifies her legitimate claim to this honor. After her emotional, introspective release of 2006, "West", Lucinda's 10th album during her 30-year career finds her full of the joy of a new love in her life, and her poetry and music show it.

"Little Honey" opens with the hard-rocking single "Real Love", showcasing the voice that won Lucinda the Best Female Rock Vocalist Grammy in 2001 (and additional nominations in Rock categories in 2003 & 2007). True to her well-known form, however, she refuses to be pigeon-holed in one genre and follows up with the "torch and twang" of "Circles And X's". But she's only just begun showing the breadth and depth of her enormous talent - next up is the smoky, slow blues of "Tears of Joy". Next is a soaring rock ballad about the tragic excesses sometimes found in the music business, "Little Rock Star". Next, another rocker, "Honey Bee", a song that she and her band, Buick 6, particularly enjoy playing live.

Then, she and the band are back in a back roads honky-tonk of her native South with the old-time country swing of "Well, Well, Well" (with the legendary 81 year-old Charlie Louvin singing background vocals). Next up, a classic Lucinda Williams song of heart-rending regret (and perhaps my favorite song on the album), "If Wishes Were Horses".

The good news is that Lucinda seems upbeat again a little over a year after the dirge that was "West". The rockers and honky-tonk tunes are a pleasure to hear. My favorite kind of Lucinda song would be "If Wishes Were Horses". It's the most direct link to the albums that made her a legend and would fit easily on her eponymous 1988 set or "Car Wheels On A Gravel Road". The duet with Elvis Costello seems like a love it or hate it deal. I love it for carrying on the tradition of Johnny and June's "Jackson" and even Shane and Kirsty's "Fairytale of New York". The clunkers here would be "Little Rock Star" and the insufferable "Rarity". Lucinda's too talented to muck things up with this kind of overindulgence. Lately she's taken to profanity as well and she phrases it like it's a really big deal. It works on "Jailhouse Tears". I cringe to hear her drop "F--k your respect" on "Rarity". Basically, "Little Honey" has a handful of good songs, a great one or two, and a new sense of adventure that might explain some of the uneven moments. Lucinda can and will do much better work, but even on a bad day, she's better than most.
