    Agreed this record starts out at a comfortable pace and canter. Some how the cadence is thrown off and he road gets treacherous. One of her best efforts, yet lacks consistency from beginning to end. She needs to dance with the fella that brought her and not tease us with a dance or two with her best friend's little brother.

  1. There's more Patti Smith in her than there is Patsy Cline.
  2. World Without Tears... is the singer-songwriter's rawest album to date -- it's often closer to all-out rock than it is to either alt-country or the singer-songwriter tradition -- and it's also her best release so far.

    Williams' captivating lyrics are gut-wrenchingly intimate.
