All the informality of someone thinking aloud, which suits her signature vocals perfectly. In overdubbing, she seems to consider tempos and time signatures almost as restricting as a real studio. A particularly personal statement, a career marker.
Like a lost book of the Old Testament. Less like a folk record and more like a warp in the space-time continuum. The most beautiful and harrowing album you will hear this year. The set captures a side of Dalton that her original releases never could. Such a personal statement its far more challenging
Two and a half hours of recordings.
