Reviews

Lyle Lovett and His Large Band

Though gospel was dominant, Lovett is through and through a cowboy. There was a point—either during “Cowboy Man” or “Cute as a Bug” —when cosmopolitan New Yorkers breached a realm where violins cease to be called violins (fiddles) and distinction is measured in liquid volume (ten gallons).

Lovett cements his status as one of our best and offers further proof that popular American songcraft is a thriving art. This seamless album is one for the ages.
