    Badly produced and amateurish recording especially the first three cuts where the out of tune guitar overwhelms her voice. Low production values spoil some interesting songs. One hopes her current tour does not feature too many efforts like this.

    Nothing could be sadder than this attempt at capitalizing on the "kiss goodbye" she got at the Grammys. What the "devotees" have posted here about "aging voice" is literally out of tune backing or vocals or both. Only burned out stoners could find this collection of "whine" artistic.

She kicked her 60s gravestone over with this pitiful attempt. And I am being kind. Expand

  1. At 67, Baez betrays some vocal aging, but she uses it wisely to impart extra feeling into what is often a downbeat collection of quality songs, and Earle has succeeded in his attempt not to reinvent her, but to re-create her sound and message in contemporary terms.
  2. Grasslands, wind in your hair, long, dusty roads travelled - it's all evoked in Joan's fine 24th studio album, and her voice, high and flowing, low and gravelly, flows timelessly through it like a mountain stream.
  3. It's a fruitful partnership: Earle's hard-won earthiness acts as a counterweight to Baez's ethereal tendencies, and Day After Tomorrow leans toward tough-minded material with blues and Appalachian overtones.
