4 Star Record Review

But as intense and personal as the songwriting process was, she sees the result as a matter of shared experience. "... it's not like I'm the first person to lose my parents, it's just that they were incredibly famous. But I've given this record to friends of mine who've lost parents, and they tell me what's meaningful to them about these songs, and to me that service is the ultimate. If that doesn't happen, then it's just narcissism."

As you may know (from my 600 mentions of it), I've been eagerly anticipating the release of the new Rosanne Cash cd "Black Cadillac" which came out yesterday. And was delivered to my door today (thank you Amazon!). You know how sometimes you're really pysched about something and then it doesn't live up to your (escalated) expectations? Well that did not happen here. I just listened to it for the first (and not the last) time and it's amazing! I can't name a favorite track just yet (I lied, it's "God Is in the Roses"). There was a great article on Rosanne is Sundays NYT (go to for all the links, reviews & accolades) and it's made me love her even more. Oh man, I am so I loving this album. Thank you Rosanne. Thank you capturing so many of my thoughts and feelings, things I could never articulate or communicate and for making it all sound so beautiful.


Maybe I've been watching too much PO5 but on tonight's Lost, when Jack taking care of Charlie, didn't he sound like he was talking to one of the Salinger kids. You'll never do that again, right Claudia?
