The new Patty Griffin album, 'Downtown Church', may in fact save your soul. It's that good.
I have always been a fan ofd Griffin's immense songwriting talent, so I was honestly a bit leery of her doing what is mostly a covers record...especially a gospel-tinged covers record. Why oh why did I ever doubt her? It's such a great album. Featuring mostly obscure gospel tunes(as opposed to overly evangelical ones), including a Hank Williams song, the album is like a beautiful time warp.
I could go on and on, but I think I will just get out of the way and let the music speak for itself...this one is an instant classic.
