Shelby Lynne
Revelation Road

Since branching out on her own Everso label, Shelby Lynne has released three self-produced albums, one of which was a stripped-down holiday disc. Revelation Road immediately stands out as the best she's put out so far not only because of its rich, meaty production, but also because her songwriting has only gotten better. The gorgeous country burner "Even Angels", the damn-near-funky title track, and the tender tragedy of "Toss It All Aside" all wind up creating this one of her strongest discs ever. If you haven't jumped on board the Lynne bandwagon yet, there is no better starting place than here.
