LUCINDA WILLIAMS
Blessed

It’s not all that hard to find an artist who’s capable of offering a guided tour of life’s dark clouds – nor is it rare to come into contact with one who can hone in on the silver lining. But the ability to do both with equal grace, well, that’s an altogether rarer gift – and it’s one that Lucinda Williams displays ... Read more in Amazon's Lucinda Williams Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

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

Customer Reviews

This is a great CD from Lucinda Williams, I am excited about her next one.
mom of 6
I love Lucinda's music, but I have to say this new album is really disappointing with boring and predictable lyrics.
J. M. S. Ferreras
Though there is a freshness in sound and style on this album...there are no super great songs lyrically.

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.

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".

Little Honey is Lucinda Williams' latest CD, and here we find her straying from what she does best which is brooding blue/country laments. Williams strays into many songs that are more rock oriented, and she sticks out here like a sore thumb. "Honey Bee" has a very punchy delivery that is very foreign to Williams' better material. Unfortunately, style is not the only malady that plagues Little Honey. "Heaven Blues" is a highly repetitive song that is beneath her skill in both writing and overall musicianship. I would joking call this a 7-11 song - seven words repeated 11 times. In reality, it is 6 phrases each repeated 4 times. This is very disappointing from someone with a 30 year career of much higher quality writing. "Plan To Marry" is a striking contrast that is more up to her standards. In this song Williams beautifully sets up love and marriage as the rock of an institution that helps us overcome all the trials that we face in life. These two songs are just one example of dichotomy on Little Honey. "If Wishes Were Horses" is another splendid lament (Williams' bread and butter). While the chorus is somewhat repetitive, the verses give enough breadth to compensate. Additionally, Williams' vocal delivery is just stunning. However, one only need advance the CD a single track to wind up back in the ditch. Here we got Elvis Costello channeling Bob Dylan (how crazy is that?) along with Williams going salty with f-bombs and s-bombs. I will admit that this is not fair, but it is a real turnoff in music when a female singer resorts to this. It's by no means overdone, but it was very jarring even in a limited scope. While I have given other female artists a pass on this, it is just too incongruous here. At the end of it all, Little Honey is a real mixed bag.Read more ›
