Over the years Emmylou Harris has perfected a style of music that’s deeply lush and emotive and beautiful. It’s the sort of music that runs the risk of sounding cliche’ and saccharine and overproduced, but her choice of material and her lyrics have a deep emotional gravity that sustains the layers and layers of music. I really enjoyed her cover of Billy Joe Shaver’s “Old Five And Dimers Like Me.” I also enjoyed “Gold.” But the standout tracks for me are the gospel tune “Beyond The Great Divide” and “Broken Man’s Lament.”
