The singer who painted her masterpiece with 2000’s ”I Am Shelby Lynne” squandered a lot of goodwill with an overwrought follow-up, but she’ll win it back with ”Identity Crisis.” Lynne is so in her element with this self-produced, mostly self-performed, largely acoustic set of folk-soul that you have to believe the title’s a deliberate misnomer. There’s variety in ”Crisis”’ intimacy, from the gospel blues of ”10 Rocks” to the Patsy homage ”Lonesome,” though Lynne’s at her hear-a-pin-drop best assaying the moment when emotional masochism reaches its limits in ”I Don’t Think So.”
