WILLIAMS,LUCINDA - CAR WHEELS ON A GRAVEL ROAD
Format: Compact Disc
Williams's fans waited a long six years for this album, as Lucinda went through music business hassles and a revolving door of producers. The reward for their patience is an album full of rootsy, heartfelt observations that alternately rock and mourn. CAR WHEELS is full of songs about loss and longing, like "Metal Firecracker", "Drunken Angel" and "I Lost It", but even when she's bemoaning her own lack of happiness on the bluesy "Joy", she lets loose with so much passion that it seems inevitable she'll find her emotional centre again.
Produced largely by Steve Earle, CAR WHEELS is immersed in that late-'90s alt-country sound, full of slide guitar, accordion, dobro and other Americana touches. It's a tribute to Williams's unique artistic vision that she distinguishes herself from the No Depression crowd by virtue of her idiosyncratic songwriting. Full of lust, sadness and the occasional glimmer of hope, CAR WHEELS is one small step for Lucinda Williams and one giant leap for those tuned into her wavelength.
