    I hated this album. Her Car Wheels album is a million times better!

    Coming from an artist like Lucinda, this album is very very bad. Some of the lyrics would be embarrasing to hear even from the most idealistic / heartbroken 18 year old. There are 3 or 4 fine songs on here, but not even close to approaching her past records.

    I wanted to find something nwew in this but come on! LW writes the same thing over and over again! I mean, ten years ago she was writing these words. "I'm pissed off and drunk and lonely. You left me. I'm going to get you back. You'll see. You're not a man. You're a line for a song." As a man, I find it sexist and hypocritical as all get out. I'm just so over I wanted to find something nwew in this but come on! LW writes the same thing over and over again! I mean, ten years ago she was writing these words. "I'm pissed off and drunk and lonely. You left me. I'm going to get you back. You'll see. You're not a man. You're a line for a song." As a man, I find it sexist and hypocritical as all get out. I'm just so over reading about these poor men in Lucinda's ever changing tumultuous personal life who, once they finally get the sense she's just using them for drama value, leave her and then are gutted and fried so she can get revenge and another paycheck from her record company. I thought it was new. A decade ago. Grow up Miss Williams. At nearly sixty years old, it's about time. Expand

  1. West may well be her best album. It is easily her most musically adventurous, and often her most lyrically inspired.
  2. Often harrowing, although Williams's emotional odyssey finds resolution on the title track.
  3. Spin

    Let those [few sub-par] parts slide into the ocean and enjoy the remaining hour of perfectly golden brilliance. [Feb 2007, p.89]
