An absolute masterpiece of American roots music. Lucinda Williams seamlessly blends country, folk, rock, and a bit of blues to create a beautiful paean to love and home and desire. The stories she tells convey real emotion, and you can tell she is feeling every moment, from the palpable longing of "Right In Time" to the gorgeous escapist journey of "Jackson". Even if you're not from the South, this album can make you feel like you've lived there forever. It's that powerful.
