Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Grammy Award winner Shelby Lynne's newalbum 'Suit Yourself' features the hit single 'Go With It' as well as the tribute to Johnny Cash, 'Johnny Met June'. Capitol. 2005.

Amazon.com

Lynne's follow-up to 2003's Identity Crisis works the same sparse, moody territory, but if the title of the former spoke to her self-esteem at the time, Suit Yourself shows her being more confident in every way. Again acting as her own producer, Lynne took the demo tapes she made in her California home studio to Nashville, where she augmented her first-take vocals with guitar (the Wallflowers' Michael Ward), keyboards (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' Benmont Tench), bass, drums, pedal steel, Dobro, and mandolin, employing those instruments merely as brush strokes on a wide-open canvas of voice and emotion. Throughout, Lynne strives to make the project so relaxed that a listener feels as if he's sitting cross-legged in the room--the first track begins with studio chatter, and elsewhere you can hear ice cubes clinking in a glass and the sound of someone pushing the stop button on a tape recorder. For those who prefer a more polished production, this fly-on-the-wall approach may be disconcerting, especially as the occasional track seems unfinished or a bit too rough, with an out-of-tune guitar or a rhythmic disconnect between singer and players. But ultimately, the album satisfies with the honesty and strength of the material, which ranges from Lynne's killer cover of guest Tony Joe White's "Rainy Night in Georgia" (here titled simply "Track 12") to the smoky groove of "I Cry Everyday," the wistful ballad "Old Time's Sake," and the Waylon Jennings-like "Iced Tea." Speaking of outlaws, "Johnny Met June," one of the most memorable tracks, details the Cashes' "meeting" on the far banks of the Jordan. Lynne wrote it the day Johnny died. --Alanna Nash

It's great to hear that voice.

Once "Go With It" pulls you in, "I Cry Everyday" knocks you flat!

I bet her next album will be the best she's ever done.

Shelby Lynne's new CD builds on the unassuming honesty and elegance of her last release, "Identity Crisis", letting the solid songwriting and intimate vocals shine through. There is a quiet smoldering beneath the laid-back surface of her music that draws you in like a southern storm. A nice endpiece to the album is her sultry version of "Rainy Night In Georgia" (called "track 12" for some reason). Shelby's the real deal. If you liked "Identity Crisis", you will like this.

I've wondered why I have taken so long to write this review, and I think I have two legitimate reasons. First of all, when this album came out I honestly wasn't aware that you were permitted to review an album on Amazon, and secondly, I think I'm writing this because of my disappointment with Shelby's sister, Allison Moorer's latest release. Allison is a whole lot better than her new one shows, but that's for another time. We're here to talk about Shelby Lynne.

One of the earlier reviewers of this album asked in so many words,"Why hasn't someone told me about Shelby Lynne before this?" Well, I'm going to tell you why, at least in my opinion.Way back in 1989, Willie Nelson was making an appearance on one of the early morning talk shows, and there was a young girl with long brown hair sitting beside him on a stool, as Willie was. The interviewer was talking to Willie about his new album, and then proceeded to ask Willie who the beautiful young lady was sitting next to him. Willie said, "Well, this is Shelby Lynne, who has done a few songs with me, and I think has one of the best voices I'v heard come out of Nashville in quite a while. And she's going to sing one with me right now. They then sang one of my old favorites, "I Love You So Much It Hurts". To say the least Shelby blew me away. I went out and searched and searched for her album, and finally found it. It's called"Sunrise", and in some circles is very hard to find. Now, at this point of her career, Shelby Lynne was considered a "country" singer. And, that's what she was. You almost won't even recognize her on the cover of her first album. I'm serious.

What we weren't ready at that time for was all the changes that Shelby would go through in the next 17 years.

Shelby Lynne's 'Suit Yourself' begins with voices talking in the studio. One of them says, 'All this talkin'...this is your record' and Lynne replies, 'Just keep doin' this 'til we get it right'. And indeed they do get it right. The album has 11 emotionally-driven country rock, blues and Lynne's characteristically funky songs, plus a surprise at the album's end. Produced by Lynne, the songs are pared back to acoustic guitar, bass and drums and minimalist support from electric guitar, slide, dobro and keyboards to create a live-in-the-studio efect throughout. There is not a weak track, but highlights include 'Go With It', 'Where Am I Now', the bluesy 'You're The Man', the wistful 'Old Times Sake', the Lucinda Williams-like 'I Won't die Alone' and the brief but wonderful 'Johnny Met June' - written immediately after Cash's death, and this will surely be covered by other artists. The album ends with 'Track 12', an excellent cover of Tony Joe White's 'Rainy Night In Georgia', on which Lynne enlists help from the swamp man himself to create a long jam full of guts and emotion. Shelby Lynne's 'Suit Yourself' speaks directly to the listener, it is full of honest emotion and effectively demonstrates why folks everywhere sit down to make music.

The title. SUIT YOURSELF, can mean a number of things. Yes, it can refer to selfishness. There may be a trace of vanity in this recording--especially when considering the two very odd numbers: the distinctly noisy and unpleasant opening, GO WITH IT, and the short and mystifying YOU AND WE. But, these two numbers amount to quibbles considering the quality of the rest of the cd. SUIT YOURSELF also refers to her ongoing search to avoid the pre-packaged and predictable and banal. In addition, the title also well describes the low-key, living room feel of many of the songs and the "caught in the middle of a rehearsal" sense of it all. That last use of SUIT YOURSELF is fairly important here. When listening, one gets a real sense of a work in progress and how such things are put together--i.e., getting the work to "suit yourself" (meaning Shelby, of course) and, in some cases, not finding the ideal solution. It feels spontaneous--partially an illusion, I know. Finally, of course, we are talking about the tough and tender Shelby Lynne, after all. It wouldn't be her if there weren't some strangeness, some wildness, and some lack of control. Fortunately, cigarettes and alcohol notwithstanding, her voice is as fine as ever--particularly intimate and moving on the many slow songs.

The two odd songs I mentioned above excepted, I like everything on this album. All of my favorites are quiet with minimal accompaniment but for a guitar, mandolin, dobro or piano. "Where Am I Now?, "Old Times Sake," "I Won't Die Alone," "Iced Tea," and "Sleep" are wonderful. When Shelby sings softly, she gets to me almost every time. Her smoky, delicate, twangy voice is irresistible on these numbers. Very simple and very moving.
