Heart Like a River (2005)

Details Release Date: Feb 22, 2005; Lead Performance: Ida

Since backing Lisa Loeb in the early-'90s paisley mainstream, Ida's Daniel Littleton and Elizabeth Mitchell have made quiet albums about simple desires: love, stability, understanding. Their eighth studio effort, the soft-focused Heart Like a River, similarly drifts inward, inventorying a relationship's peccadilloes while pianos plunk and guitars sigh in stunners like ''Sundown'' and ''What Can I Do?'' The duo's voices may be muted by the small tragedies of heartache, but their resolve rings strong and true.
