Slaid Cleaves: Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away
Buy! - (Music Road)
The acclaimed Austin singer-songwriter’s latest might be the finest album of his career. As dark and inevitable as its title, it is often devastating in its depictions of love lost and dreams shattered, but it’s also strangely comforting, facing hard truths instead of believing in false dreams while ripping away masks of personal and cultural deception. The understated country-folk sound just makes the songs hit even harder on this bravely honest album for these hard times. 3/19/2009 - Don Yates
