Album Review: Front Porch by Joy Williams

Very Good, Based on 1 Critic

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

By calling her second album since the dissolution of the Civil Wars The Front Porch, Joy Williams acknowledges she may have drifted a little too far into modernity on Venus, the album that marked her solo secular debut. The phrase "The Front Porch" suggests warmth and intimacy redolent of home, so it's no surprise that the album finds Williams reconnecting with the folk music that brought her fame and acclaim as half of the Civil Wars. Working with producer Kenneth Pattengale, who is best known as part of the Milk Carton Kids, Williams strips away any contemporary affectations, keeping the focus directly on the songs and her plaintive, powerful voice.
