    This is music that speaks of the heart, the soul, and the mind; her messages are articulate and well-crafted, and this ranks with her best work of the past decade.

    With In the Time of Gods, Williams has produced another accomplished album that, at its best, achieves precisely that.

    What In the Time of Gods lacks, then, is a balance between the headier material and the wit and frivolity that have made Williams such a distinctive voice in contemporary folk.

    A few more upbeat tunes along the lines of the pop worthy "Summer Child" might have upped the energy, but for established Williams fans, her ninth studio set is another classy entry that gets better with repeated spins.

    It's a lofty premise and, sadly, she overreaches with some unusually contrived lyric writing that spoils some of the great music behind it.
