Allison Moorer: “Crows”

I first heard Allison Moorer’s Crows in December, and joked at the time that it was immediately my favorite album of 2010. Two months later, it’s still ranking pretty high on the list, and I wouldn’t bet against it still being on the list come next December, either. It’s a beautiful and gutwrenching break-up album that, like the best break-up albums, goes so much deeper than mere sadness, into meditations on pain, grace, hope… the important things. Musically, it’s a classicist album that borrows from the language of classic country, rock, folk, and pop. All things considered, it’s simply a marvelous recording, and my review of it is posted today at CT’s music page.
