Album: Rosanne Cash, The List (Manhattan)
Sunday 11 October 2009
The eponymous "list" was an inventory of "100 essential country songs" bequeathed to Rosanne by her late pop. The album contains a round dozen of them.
It's classy, thoughtful, rounded stuff, featuring contributions from Messrs Costello, Springsteen, Wainwright and Tweedy. Arrangements are elegant, the voice well served. Yet there's something so perfected about it that some of the cold vapours of academicism appear to have seeped under the studio door. Not passionless so much as the coffee-table version of passionate.
