Format: Audio CD
The sound that pervades "4th Street Feeling," Melissa Etheridge's stark, strutting, sometimes bluesy homage to her Americana roots, is one of simple assuredness - the kind that comes when an artist is more interested in expression and craft than commercial viability.

What logically accompanies are touches of blatant overtness and occasional broad strokes, since precious few are stationed at the editing board - as a matter of fact, the LP marks the first time Etheridge plays every guitar part - but her unbridled passion, long her unspoken calling card, carries the melodic and emotional weight, anchoring one of her finest sets of tunes.

"The Shadow of a Black Crow" and "A Disaster," are among the darkest songs she has ever committed to disc, informed by the unfortunate circumstances of her personal life in recent years. She wrings out her soul, coaxing heartrending, stirring melodies and incisive, picturesque lyrics that instantly impress and characterize the album.

Even the groovy, earthy "Be Real," which at first reads like Etheridge's advice to misguided young Hollywoodites and their worshippers, broods and simmers with a venomous bite. Still, for all her anxiety and pain, Etheridge never hits below the belt or spells things out too clearly, with the only exception the righteous, rocking "Sympathy."

Not all is dour, of course. Etheridge has long proven herself a rarity - an introspective singer/songwriter who can express even her joy and triumph with surprising originality - and she lives up to that here with the lilting, positively romantic "I Can Wait" and the coyly sensuous "Rock and Roll Me." Even "Falling Up," which shares its title and spirituality with Rickie Lee Jones' 2007 single, is its own heartening call to draw the curtains firmly open.

Etheridge is in fine form on "4th Street Feeling." Her longtime listeners know what to expect of her, and much of that is here to be appreciated and savored.

Melissa Etheridge has released her latest album, "4th Street Feeling", and I must say it is her best recording in years especially after a series of CD's failed to peak my interest. Perhaps it was simply the songs on those albums I didn't care for or the production, but in this, her 12th studio album, Melissa is back at the top of her game.

She has said she wanted to celebrate her 51 years of living and of "going around the sun 51 times". As mosy know Melissa has had her share of heartache in recent years...her battle with cancer and a terrible breakup with a former lover that left her scarred. Perhaps it was the later that inspired her to write 12 of the best songs of her career as they are insightful, autobiographical and thought-provoking and as any serious songwriter will tell you the best songs they can compise are from reliving real-life experiences.

Melissa says her influences on "4th Street Feeling" are from country to rock to R&B to folk and soul. Says Etheride, "I grew up with one radio station-one AM station that would play Tammy Wynette, then Marvin Gay then Led Zepplin. So I never thought there being a difference between these genres".

My favorite cuts on this remarkable release include "A Disaster" where Missy talks about saying goodbye to the enemy, "Be Real" where she sings about selling her soul to fame and "Symathy" starts off with the line, "There's a liar in your bed", in reference to her former lover.

I predict that come February when the Grammy nominations are announced Melissa Etheridge will indeed receive multiple noms. Melissa...welcome back and I must say you are in top form both as a singer and most impressively as a songwriter. WOW!!!

A+++

The other two reviewers are right on target. This is a fabulous, unbelievably wonderful Melissa Etheridge-at-her-best album. I listened to the samples while searching through Amazon's offerings. After the first snippet I knew I was paying full price for the album. After the second sample I knew I was paying full price for the deluxe version. I purchased the album and have just finished listening to it, stem to stern. I have purchased literally a couple hundred albums in the past year. This is already my favorite. I have now put it on loop. You will not be disappointed.

Should we go with the bad news first, or the good? Let's get the negative out of the way, since it's definitely in the minority...Melissa Etheridge just cannot do big arena rock anthems any more! They bogged down (much of) her last two releases (2007's THE AWAKENING and FEARLESS LOVE in 2010), coming across as both dated and bloated.
That said, the good news is that there are only a couple such cuts to be found on the very strong 4th STREET FEELING. Said good news continues with the fact that not only is 4th STREET Etheridge's strongest album in almost a decade (on par with 2004's LUCKY), it is also easily one of the most original, creative efforts in a now-quarter century career. Believe me, there are SO many roads here that she should continue to travel down (In fact, I wish we could give out half stars...even with the couple of clunkers, this is a 4.5 star release!).
Things kick off with the hushed, intimate "Kansas City." Amid a stripped-down, yet powerful, arrangement and crisp instrumentation (love the harmonica!), Etheridge's lead vocal wraps around thoughtful, soulful lyrics. A great note to start things on!
Even better is the disc's hypnotic title track. Swapping out her guitar for keyboards, Etheridge comes up with a mesmerizing groove that totally transports you back to a much simpler time. Her lead vocal caresses the strong lyrics ("The whispers have found me/Inside the shadows of my doubts") perfectly, resulting in an absolute beaut!
I also love "Falling Up." From the toe-tapping arrangement to the little vocal flourishes (the charming "Well..fine!"), everything just works! Equal parts pop, rock, country and bluegrass, everything comes together here in pop perfection! In a just world, this song would have ~ and should have! ~ been a MASSIVE hit!
