If last year's melancholy West was Lucinda Williams' Blood on the Tracks, does that make this her Nashville Skyline? She sounds happier than she has in years, singing mostly about domestic contentment with an audible grin. And though those positive vibes yield some correspondingly fun tunes, the disc feels a bit underwritten at times. We'd never wish her unhappiness, but it's telling that the best song on Little Honey is a wistful breakup ballad (''Wishes Were Horses''). B–
