5.0 out of 5 stars A unique record of 12 familiar stories, October 22, 2013
This review is from: 12 Stories (MP3 Music)
One of the must have albums of 2013 and an easy contender for best country album - possibly one of the best of the decade.
Brandy Clark's pure and emotive vocals narrate 12 unique stories - each one relatable even if the listener hasn't lived through the specifics. Laced with wit and comedy while at the same time painting a vivid and sometimes dark portrait of every day life. The crutches, the temptations, the thoughts that are being shrugged off as you pass by the mirror. Dave Brainard has done a sterling job producing and a team of high class musicians provide a stunning backdrop to help bring the already vivid stories even more to life.
After 15 years perfecting her sound there isn't a song on here that hasn't been carefully nursed to fruition - and the lack of external forces allow for Clark's art to shine through, unabridged and uncensored. These two major factors tied with the quality of Clark's vocals propel 12 Stories to the front of the queue of best debuts.
Can't recommend it enough - especially for people who miss the raw reality of country music at its best.
