Format: Audio CD
This is another very fine album from the great Mary Gauthier. It's been four years since The Foundling and she has come up with another intensely personal album of excellent, autobiographical songs - this time telling the story of a relationship break-up, the consequent emotional damage and the beginnings of recovery.

As you'd expect, these are songs of real quality. They are beautifully crafted with straightforward, singable tunes which form great settings for the personal, emotionally powerful lyrics. Gauthier's admirers (like me) will know what to expect and won't be disappointed; she's doing what she does best here and doing it brilliantly. While perhaps not quite as raw as she was in The Foundling, this is nonetheless an album of pain seeking balm and redemption, which she expresses as few others can. How You Learn To Live Alone, for example is a profound and oddly beautiful evocation of the withdrawal from life which can follow intense emotional hurt and is an outstandingly honest and insightful song. That slightly fractured voice, her acoustic guitar and a brilliant group of musicians and singers bring all these songs to life wonderfully. The arrangement and production are pitch-perfect, making everything shine without ever swamping it.

I loved The Foundling even though it wasn't a commercial success. Trouble & Love is a bit more accessible, I think, but it shares a lot of what I loved about The Foundling - thoughtful, sincere and meaningful songs with good tunes and great performances. Here we have just eight songs and a total of about 40 minutes of music. No padding or superfluous material; Mary Gauthier has distilled what she wants to say into this eight-chapter story and it's just brilliant.

I've been a fan of Mary's for years dating back to her early days in Boston and first saw her perform there for a small group of fans, well before she left for Nashville and an incredible music career. I knew then she was something special and this record is one more in a series that proves she is one of the most hauntingly, emotionally raw, beautifully honest performers of our time. Another Train and When a Woman Goes Cold are two of the best songs she has written. And with a catalog such as hers that is no easy feat. Bravo Mary!

Okay, thanks to the postal service which seems to have lost the first two copies of Mary’s CD, I’m a bit “late to the game” here and I won’t cover the same territory covered by my fellow reviewer Sid Nuncious, but I hope to add a different perspective – and some other info – for those who haven’t yet discovered the songwriting talent (and live performance) of Mary Gauthier.

Gauthier doesn’t write what most would call “happy songs”. (No Pherell Williams vibes here.) Her songs are deep and thoughtful and often about relationships (which I’m guessing are based on her own life experiences). You can just listen to an album like this once and think you understand it all. It takes multiple listening to decipher the words (there are no lyrics in the CD package) and peel off the layers of the story. I guess the most up-tempo song here comes right in the middle of the eigh tracks on the 38-minute disc. That would be “Oh Soul” a soulful gospel-tinged number.

Most of the time it’s Mary’s voice out front but, even though the production is low-key, she;s not alone in the studio and this New Orleans native, now transplanted to Nashville (where I’ve had the chance to see her play live) has brought in some pretty well known (and musically accomplished) Nashville-based friends to add to the vocal mix. Beth Nielsen Chapman, Darrell Scott and the incredible McCrary Sisters are here. And for the track “How You Learn to Live Alone”, Mary was able to snag twang-guitar legend Duane Eddy to join her and provide a soulful guitar solo. (Don’t expect any “Rebel Rouse” here; Eddy plays it cool and slow).

Gauthier has a way with words that create images in your head. The one that stayed with me in this album comes from “False from True”.

Great music. Saw her last month in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry and was thoroughly impressed with her lyrics and presentation. Not typical country western at all. More blues with a soft rock undertone. I would pay to see her in concert any day.

Delightful! Riveting! Mary Gauthier's voice calls you into the song and hence into the experience that it tells. These are not just songs; they are experiences the listener can have again and again. Gauthier's voice is lyrical, beautiful, and real.

Hearing Mary Gauthier interviewed on NPR's Fresh Air prompted my purchase of this CD by an artist I wasn't familiar with. It's original, melodic, and poignant. Her voice suits her material, which is deeply personal. I'm eager to listen to more of er work.

Terrific. Gauthier was new to me. Strong lyrics; intense, involving voice. I like the persona behind these songs and the careful arrangements. The first track -- when a woman goes cold -- is flat out great.

Now, for a review by a woman that is a folk music connoisseur. Don’t let my title as “metal queen” fool you. Some of my favorite artists of folk were introduced to me by a very valuable friend of mine. I was open to it and I loved it. So here it is: First, folk I love is by Gillian Welch, Laura Veirs, Neko Case, Lucinda Williams, Amy Ray, Dar Williams, and a ton of others and that is just the women. Anyway, I have all of Mary G. albums…have always loved her music and this album is no exception – except that I think she out did all of her other albums. Real, emotional, yes a little more accessible but that is a great thing. Raw but a polished feel, beautiful, soothing, and awesome lyrics with a diversity of a little gospel feel to it that I think is the hallmark of great folk these days. It’s an album you drink a very good whisky to. Mary has awesome talent. Here is to true, raw and the song writing that is superb. It is the essence of folk beauty.
Right now, Amy Ray and Mary’s new releases are the bomb in women’s folk; they are very different in a lot of ways but essential to any folk collection. Really don’t think anybody will be disappointed in their choices. Cheers!
