  1. The Canadian-American boho remains as feisty and red-blooded as ever, her hewn-from-marble voice--part-cowgirl part-Patti Smith--crooning and bawling tales of feckless lads and late night disappointments.
  2. Yet by the time the final notes of the acoustic closer I Wish I Were Here have faded away, then you're more than convinced that this is yet another triumph for the Wainwright family.
  3. Married improves even on Wainwright’s excellent 2005 debut. It’s a more subtle, diverse, self-assured affair.
  4. Where Rufus' work is fabulously bedazzled, Martha's remains earth-hued and loamy--rich, deep, complex--making Married well worth the wait.

    Not a fan. Liked her brother's first couple of records. Can't get into his new stuff. CAN'T get into her. Maybe later.
