Forget About It
This has been billed as a pop album. Dont let that fool you. Forget About It may not be contemporary bluegrass, but its certainly not going make anyone think Krauss is doing Mariah Carey or Celine Dion banal ballads.
As usual, Alison Krauss sings like an angel, and is backed by her band Union Station (featuring Jerry Douglas on trademark dobro). Whats different this time out is the choice of songs: Tunes by Todd Rundgren (It Wouldnt Have Made Any Difference) and Michael McDonald (Empty Hearts) get the usual Krauss treatmentvery acoustic, not overproduced and with a solid backup band behind her.
Acoustic pop might be a better term for this album, for want of a better marketing label. Forget About It will not disappoint fans, and may add a few to Krauss substantial fanbase.
