Lonely Runs Both Ways (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Nov 23, 2004; Lead Performance: Alison Krauss & Union Station

Alison Krauss' feathery vocals rank among the sexiest and most hypnotic in any genre. Yet on their first studio album in three years, she and Union Station largely bypass the upside of romance to open a new vein of melancholy (sideman Dan Tyminski's red-neck spin on Woody Guthrie's ''Pastures of Plenty'' is a rollicking exception). But while it can be unbearably sad, Lonely Runs Both Ways is ultimately a beautiful meditation on heartbreak.
