Crystal Bowersox's extraordinary new album out Dec. 14
“Halfway to crazy, not far from sane” are the first few words of Crystal Bowersox’s song, Farmer’s Daughter, which is the title track of her eponymous album, available to pre-order from her official website and released to the world on Dec. 14. And yes; one would have to be halfway to crazy and not very far from insanity itself not to enjoy the extraordinary album that Bowersox has put out. From the upbeat opening song “Ridin' with the Radio”, an invitation to just sing, to the extraordinary closing song “Arlene”, a song about having to “do it by oneself” if one wants to get anywhere, one is taken on a journey of epic proportions, a true musical tour-de-force. For a debut album, this is nothing short of sensational. The journey takes us through songs such as “Farmer’s Daughter”, a veritable anthem against child abuse, through classic-already songs such as “Holy Toledo”, with its quiet question: “How do I get to heaven from here?”. And it never lets up. Through brilliant songs such as “On the Run” and “Kiss Ya”, the album truly comes into its own with the later songs, such as the extraordinary last four songs “Speak Now”, “Mine All Mine”, the duet “Mason” (a celebration of love if there ever was one) and the final song, the beautiful “Arlene”. Stunned? I certainly am.
