Grievous Angel is one of those albums that’s impossible to describe and can only really be understood by taking a listen. Before I heard it, I was adamant that I disliked country music but this project was strong enough to change my mind only a few songs in. It’s so down to earth sounding and makes me feel like I’m right in the heart of the country, perfectly encompassing a very specific feeling so well. This is one of those moments in time that just made perfect sense in the 70s and still makes perfect sense today.
