    For its sustained mood, its clarity of vision, its consistently lovely orchestration, and its pungent and specific lyrics, this latest break-up album is strong indeed. It's where Colvin does her best work, and this is comfortably among it.

    It's a far cry from the fighting optimism of "Sunny Came Home" but Shawn Colvin still writes with fearless honesty and genuine insight.

    [All Fall Down] is a dark journey lyrically: Good folks fail, lovers betray, salvation is an even bet at best. But the music... heals.
