ALBUM REVIEW: Rosanne Cash ~ The River & The Thread

ptw score8square-600-4Rosanne Cash stepped out of her father’s shadow many years ago and has increasingly delivered deeply emotive and personal albums. This may be her best yet, eschewing country music cliches while still remaining firmly rooted in the rich storytelling world of Americana music. There are swampy, Southern musical landscapes reminiscent of where Dylan now resides yet this is more graceful and intimate and, though sadness and loss inhabit many songs, there is an air of optimism. Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and Tony Joe White all appear as guests but the album’s success is wholly the result of the songwriting and performance of Cash and husband/co-writer John Leventhal.
