Orphaned as a 14-year-old by her parents’ murder-suicide, the liquid-voiced Allison Moorer has long parsed the fine print of heaven and hell. On the title song of The Duel, her jagged, Neil Young-influenced new album, a disconsolate woman stands at a grave site and squares off against the Almighty. Though Moorer’s haunting characters delay the inevitable by juggling booze and pills, their struggle ends with redemption: They, and Moorer, get right with God after all.
