I quite like the one with Chris Stapleton above
Awful non-existent chorus in Tell Me When It's Over. The verses are ok and yeah, it has that vague My Favourite Mistake sound, but it's a pale shadow of that song.
It's all just so bloody polite and generic.
I'm actually enjoying the album way more than I thought I would. Taken as a whole, it's nice to hear the different styles and artists. Keeps it interesting.
The Emmylou duet is gorgeous. Also loving "Story Of Everything" and "Beware of Darkness".
There's a cracking Dylan cover on there too. From being so "meh" over the whole thing. I now think it's by far her strongest album in years(although Feels Like Home is kinda gorge).
I stuck Threads on this evening and was a bit meh until one song came on and my ears pricked up and I thought “ooh this is GOOD, like vintage Sheryl”
It was Redemption Day
I haven't got to putting the album on yet but I do really like Tell Me When It's Over, that post chorus bit especially.
Ugh. It's brilliant.
Cross Creek Road
Everything is Broken
She always delivers top notch melodies and vocals, but it all got a bit too slick from C'mon C'mon onwards. I still love her stuff though.
Yep, I can definitely agree with the "slick" comment. It's odd how much grittier her first three albums were, and suddenly it all got quite safe...top notch, but very, very safe. It never came back either.
I can't get over how strong most of this album is though. I expected a weak and naff duets album, but I truly love this.
She had a breakdown between albums 3 & 4 didn’t she?
You mean Globe SeSHES and C'mON c'mOFF?
