We gave it a B+

The esteemed tunesmith’s latest, Between Us, is a set of spare new acoustic duets, performed with an interesting assortment of partners. The concept could easily have become a gimmick, but the album never sounds less than organic. Shear’s elegantly melancholy vignettes resonate with detail and insight, and the guest singers — standouts include Rosanne Cash, Paula Cole, Susan Cowsill, and Amy Rigby — complement the material without overshadowing it. B+
