Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the singer/songwriter. Revelation Road is Shelby's most personal record yet. She wrote, recorded and produced the album, which leads off with the title track and first single, a stirring reflection on reckoning and redemption. From Country to Pop and back again, this is Shelby at her finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Just Keeps Getting Better! October 26, 2011
By HagFan
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of this young lady since the beginning in 1989, and have wandered why there are still so many people who don't know who she is. Well, I'll tell you who she is. She is, hands down, the best female singer/songwriter that the Good Lord has given us in this generation. I knew she had something when she brought her first album, "Sunrise" out. Her career has gone in many different directions since then, but I think she has finally found her niche. I say this without hesitation in praising everything that she has done in the past.

Shelby's last album prior to her Christmas album, "Tears, Lies, and Alibis" was the best album by a female singer in 2010. If you haven't purchased it yet do yourself a favor and sit down and enjoy. It's a little more upbeat than "Revelation Road", but stands up against any other album released last year by the so-called singers you hear on the radio. A great, great album. There is not a bad cut on it. With "Revelation Road", Shelby has put together a whole album that is so personal that it reminds me of the way the great Merle Haggard writes. When you listen to him, you're hearing his life story. And, when you listen to "Revelation Road", if you know anything about Shelby, she is telling her life story. She's not afraid to face the ups and downs that she has gone through personally. As a lifelong fan, I have to say that Shelby's voice has gotten crisper and cleaner with the years. She has so much range with her voice that it's nearly hard to believe. And, one last bit of praise. Shelby wrote all of the songs, played all the instruments, and produced the album in her own studio.

If you weren't a fan before "Revelation Road", and you give it chance, you will be a fan. I guarantee it. If you've been a fan, I'm sure after listening to this album Shelby didn't disappoint you. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkles with Originality November 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Shelby Lynne's "Revelation Road" sparkles with originality. As always, Shelby is an expressive singer who embodies her songs and oozes feeling. As a songwriter, each track is strong. Softer songs like "The Thief" also shine, "If I thought a million bucks could make you want to just stand up and walk into my love like before, I'd rob a rich man's diamond mine to make you be my Valentine; Say the word & I'll become a thief." "Woebegone" churns slowly somewhere between country, folk, & rock with a touch of blues, "Should have seen it coming; A crystal ball says it all; When I wake up and see me crying, woe be gone." The midtempo rocker, "Heaven's Only Days Down the Road," is a stunning gem that deals with death as a release from pain, "I've been insane since I was nine, never went to crying, was the fighting kind, load up the gun full of regret; I ain't even pulled the trigger yet." The title track has one of Shelby's best melodies that seems to flow effortlessly with her sparkling vocals crowning the track. This is a wonderful set with charms that keep enhancing with repeated listening. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! January 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Worth the money whether you are a long time fan of Shelby Lynne, or if you are new to Shelby's music. The songs on Revelation Road are deeply personal and heartfelt. SL is one of the best singer/songwriters out there today. The Deluxe Edition also includes excellent recording of Shelby live at McCabe's Guitar Shop in LA, and another great set recorded live in London, UK. A DVD of the making of Revelation Road is also included. Interesting stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY AMAZING ALBUM January 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
SHELBY LYNNE HAS ALWAYS BEEN OVERLOOKED AND UNDER RATED AS SHE DOES THE MUSIC SHE WANTS TO DO AND DOES IT HER WAY. THIS AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ALBUM IS BRILLIANT WITHOUT A BAD TRACK ON IT. IT IS ALL SHELBY - SHE WROTE IT, PLAYS EVERY INSTRUMENT AND PRODUCED IT. I HAD THE PURE JOY OF SEEING HER PERFORM THR ALBUM IN PERSON AND IT IS A NIGHT I WILL NEVER FORGET. BUT IT, PLAY IT AND BECOME A FAN, TOO!

Format:Vinyl
Country singer Shelby Lynne has had an interesting career. She was signed to Epic Records and released a series of good albums with little promotion. She changed gears- as well as her sound- in 1993 with a couple of albums that were a strange hybrid of country and Dixieland jazz. After a five year hiatus, she returned with another change in sound as well as a new label. She released her Island Records debut "I Am Shelby Lynne"- which was produced by Bill Bottrell (Michael Jackson, Sheryl Crow). A year after that album's release, she was awarded the Best New Artist trophy at the Grammys- despite having been in the business for a decade. She followed up "I Am Shelby Lynne" with the blatant attempt at pop stardom, the Glen Ballard produced "Love, Shelby". 2003 saw her move to Capitol Records to release "Identity Crisis" and the 2005 follow-up "Suit Yourself"- both of which were produced by entirely by Shelby herself and garnered universal acclaim from critics. She then went on to release her only album for Lost Highway Records- the Phil Ramone produced tribute to Dusty Springfield, "Just A Little Lovin'". After her less than stellar experiences with major labels, Shelby decided to go the independent route for her next effort. She released the melancholic "Tears, Lies And Alibis" on her own imprint Everso Records.

In 2011, she continued down the path of independence with her newest album "Revelation Road". This time around, she sings about her past growing up as a child in a small town in Alabama. Her newest recording is self-produced and stripped down- much like her past few albums- save for "Just A Little Lovin'". She begins the album with the noticeably poppy title track "Revelation Road", in which she sings about being on a path of forgiveness.
