Julie Roberts (2004)

EW's GRADE
A

Details Release Date: May 25, 2004; Lead Performance: Julie Roberts; Genre: Country

She may look like the comely Ms. Hill, but musically, Roberts is the anti-Faith, a singer who cuts through country's dross to find its bluesy heart. In choosing songs of substance and sensuality, the South Carolina native harks back to the confessional style of Linda Ronstadt, packing hidden hurts and dashed dreams into every chorus. One of the most auspicious debuts in years.
