Album Review: Sparrow by Ashley Monroe

This is the 3rd Ashley Monroe album I've reviewed. It is quite different in sound. Taking from the KD Lang school of country music and blending it with a lush orchestrated sound, she has moved away from Vince Gill for this album. Taken one at a time the songs are pretty solid. Lyrically Monroe is a good songwriter and that comes through as always. But over 12 songs there is something lacking on this album. For me I find myself getting lost in listening to it and having a hard time staying connected. If you like Ashley Monroe I would recommend it, not sure I would recommend someone who hasn't listened to her to start out with this album. Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 2 out of 5 stars for Not Bad.

  1. I think I've liked every Ashley Monroe video you've posted. Maybe I should pay more attention to her music generally.
