  • Summary: The legendary singer's third roots-country album for Sugar Hill Records includes 12 Parton originals as well as covers of Bread's "If" and, of all things, Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven."

  1. She pulls it off, magnificently, thanks to her spectacular trill of a soprano and earnest approach.
  2. It'll charm the chaps off both diehards and the folks who've discovered these backwoods sounds because of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.
  3. This is a showcase of a hugely important American artist at full power.

    She's still producing songs that stand comparison with those past and purloined classics. [Aug 2002, p.106]
  5. A pretty strong, spiritually-themed album.
  6. The problem is, Parton seems hesitant to just go ahead and continue to make the kinds of albums that will attract hardcore folk and roots enthusiasts, instead tempering her material with apparent attempts to hold appeal to a wider audience. So, at best, the final results are a bit mixed.
  7. 60
    Some of her best singing in years. [Sep 2002, p.114]
