Summary
Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone is Lucinda Williams' first album for Highway 20 Records, her own label, giving her complete control over the creative process. Though this does not always sound like an album where Williams is challenging herself musically, for a musician who has long believed in the power of nuance, this is an album that feels unerringly right for her, full of sweet and sour blues, acoustic pondering, and simple, bare bones rock and roll that slips into the groove with Williams' literate but unpretentious songs. Love and its infinite complexities have always been some of Williams' favorite themes, but she has just as much (if not more) to say about the world around her, setting one of her father's poems to music as she pleads for compassion, spits venom at a dilettante from the perspective of someone living in poverty, recounts a real-life tale of justice gone wrong, and issues a call to action. Williams also gives herself plenty of room to stretch out, offering 20 songs spread out over two discs. Despite its epic scale, there seems to be precious little filler here; if these songs sometimes take a while to find their spiritual and emotional center, they invariably get there, and the powerful litanies mesh comfortably with the implacable rhythm of this music. Williams produced the sessions and the performances are steeped in deep and satisfying grooves, the sound of Lucinda Williams doing what she does best and letting her muse do the speaking with music that is taut and soulful. But this music is also a document of one woman baring her spirit and mind to the world, which has always been the case with her best music. -- Editorial Review provided by Mark Deming for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
