Best of 2014: Rosanne Cash - "The River and the Thread"
by Kim Ruehl
December 26, 2014

Roseanne Cash, a true artist in her own right. She walks her own line.
I love how this review begins:
It starts with a guitar, and the blues. The sudden, slow slide sounds like someone just picked up an instrument to see if they could scare out some music. The riff doesn’t get very far before the rhythm kicks in, and the quietly descending blues scales that overlay the rhythm guitar, and the sticks that hop from snare to tom, and the strolling bass line. It’s all so familiar, these melodies and rhythms, that by the time the voice enters at eight bars in, you already suspect the next 12 songs are going to flow out with the at-once familiarity and intrigue that comes from pulling your great-grandmother’s quilt out of a hope chest.
