I have very strong feelings about the music of Gillian. Her music stands in open spaces crying out to be heard. The guitar of David Rawlings wraps around her heart-wide-open lyrics and wails and makes them even more heartwrenching. If she had been around 50 years ago she would have been as famous as famous can be. But take a minute and give this music an honest chance. Its worth your time. That country gospel sound could do you some good. If you like Emmylou Harris, the new Jenny Lewis disc or anything like that, this may be for you.
