LUCINDA WILLIAMS

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

5.0 out of 5 stars From a recent convert... January 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Where have they been hiding Lucinda Williams all these years? Why aren't these songs - - her songs as sung by her - - standard hits?!? I am so grateful that I stumbled across VH1's Top 100 Women of Rock-n-Roll show last year, and as a lark, decided to watch it. My first thought was "how did they actually come up with 100 women in rock-n-roll?"...that half-hour episode happened to be the one that included Lucinda Williams. From what I heard, she sounded like something I'd like, so I made a mental note to check her out. I am kicking myself for waiting so long! You know how it is when you go cd shopping...you fill up your basket, and then you realize you're spending way too much so you put things back for another time. Well, I kept putting Lucinda back! I finally purchased this cd (with Xmas gift money, so I splurged, guilt-free!) and it has not left my cd player since!
I would describe these songs as heartfelt, edgy, and very real, with stories we can all relate to. 'Side of the Road' has got to be one of the greatest songs I've ever heard...it really touched me by effectively articulating that need to occasionally identify myself separately, not only from my husband, but even from my children. This re-release also has a bonus track of a live version, and it is so beautiful! 'I Just Wanted to See You So Bad' is one of those songs that oozes that intensely wonderful, all consuming, sense of urgency, when a relationship is new; 'Like a Rose' is just heavenly; very Velvet Underground/Sunday Morning-ish; and, of course, the well-known 'Passionate Kisses', I think Lucinda's version is much more effective and exudes a deeper message than Mary Chapin Carpenter's, which I always found to be kind of grating and pop-ish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential September 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The world finally seems to have noticed Lucinda's greatness, and she's become a mild commercial success in addition to retaining her critical cachet. If you've not heard this album, seek it out. It's Lucinda's best, yet her most accessible.
I'm not a huge country music fan, but I realize these songs were considered too rock for country radio & vice versa when they came out, but now that popular country music seems to have shifted the emphasis to "popular" I think there's a huge audience out there that hasn't discovered this great album (especially since it hasn't aged a bit).
Lucinda never seems to work when she's writing her lyrics. On the first listen, they seem like they came off the top of her head. Once you've absorbed them, they start to exhibit a wonderful poetry. They evoke the subject matter (usually relationships in a state of shambles or ecstacy) amazingly well. She's one of our best lyricsts, and is obsessed with production, so the album glimmers with quality.
The resigned ballad "Side Of The Road" is the album's most obvious masterpiece, since it manages to spin a complex emotional tale of wanderlust while never losing its verse/chorus catchiness. Still, this is an album loaded with gems. "I Just Wanted To See You So Bad" is the rollicking country precursor to Cyndi Lauper's "I Drove All Night". "The Night's Too Long" precedes the Dixie Chicks' country tune as female empowerment anthem style by a decade, but is smart enough not to suggest that an empowered woman is above a night of fun with the right man. "Crescent City" is the most fun track on the album; a slice of down home nostalgia that doesn't make you feel guilty for loving its simplicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars another gem from a brilliant songwriter December 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I bought Lucinda's Car Wheels On A Gravel Road CD because of the Steve Earle connection. I quickly realized she didn't need anyone's name to stand strong. I immediately went out and bought this self-titled release. She's a genius storyteller. She might even eclipse the mighty Dave Alvin when it comes to sincerity. It is impossible to hear any of her songs without being transported to the places that Lucinda is singing of. She'd be a... good writer even without the music.
This CD isn't quite so polished as Car Wheels. It's properly stripped down. Jim Lauderdale, Pat Quinn & Gurf Morlix supply the perfect complimentary backup vocals. Morlix also supplies his usual master guitar work. These songs are so simple in theory that it amazes me still that so few can do it well. The Williams brand of love and pain and closure is refreshingly pure. There's nothing contrived about it. I seriously doubt that Lucinda Williams has it in her to produce a less than stunning record.
Whatever you want to call it these days, folk/country/Americana, it's top of the line music by any standards. My CD only has the original 12 tracks, so I can't really comment on the live stuff. Still, I haven't heard enough bad songs from Lucinda to comprise an EP. Give her a try...you'll want more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw...and still the best September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I just plucked this CD out of my "all time favorites" collection to hear "Crescent City" - the one song that floated in my head for days since hurricane Katrina tore the heart out of New Orleans. The longing to go there, missing the old days when "we used to..." are EXACTLY how I felt when this tragedy occurred. I always knew Lucinda had an incredible talent for writing - from the time I first saw her performing on Austin City Limits in the early 90s. To me, this CD is the epitome of good music because it is just enough to connect for most people - not over the top in poetry, but with far more depth than most country music, and no synthetic sound. I think of this CD as "raw' because there is nothing flashy about it. Lyrics are clearly from the heart, and instruments are played in a traditional and purely unadulterated form. You hear the fiddle, the drums, the bass, guitars, all orchestrated in a way that only the fiercly independent Lucinda could have done. It is perfect. This is what I'd like to see performed live again in an intimate venue. It is what I play on the porch on a hot summer afternoon. It will forever remain an "all time favorite" for me.
