Good Souls Better Angels Tracklist:
I am not the most loyal LW fan, however I have followed her for a few decades. She is a visionary for sure, and should make one ponder her words. Four stars for me because I find the sound does not differ enough from tune to tune. “Wakin’ Up” is a complete standout for me!
It's been years since I've loved a Lucinda Williams record (her early ones still blow my mind), but finally, she's angry again, and what's wonderful is that she's angry at the same person we all despise. "Good Souls Better Angels" is a soundtrack for our times. "Bad News Blues" is the song I've been looking for. You'll want to get in your car, put it on eleven, and scream the words at the top of your lungs. "Man Without A Soul" is like the perfect New York Times editorial on the past three years, but with Lucinda singing the words. Her anger will make you feel at least a little better. And if you're looking for something that fits our collective mood right now, this is it! Brilliant!
I own every record LW has ever made. I bought this one. LW is one of the best literary song writers alive. She’s moved on from painting pictures in your mind to relentless preaching. Something I have no need for. This record is monotonous, droning, repetitive and a genuine bummer. I listened through once and I’m done.
This might not be sweet Lu's best album, but it's got a great share of heartfelt messages and a few beautiful tunes, as well. It's hard to believe anyone can criticize observations that any intelligent person would make about where this country is. A creative woman with more soul in her little finger than so many of the imposters in Washington, Lucinda fulfills an obligation to give voice to those who wake up every day filled with disbelief at what our leaders are doing to us.
Terrible... Shes done such better I mean I can watch SNL if I want this take away. You couldn't find another topic? Like this is o played out wuth every artsist using it as aconcept for nothing more than a quick buck. Lucinda has become what she sings about for selling out for this palp.
This artist continues to amaze. The songwriting, the voice articulate so beautifully. As far as politics, it's not political to notice that bill Clinton was a hound dog and Donald Trump has no soul. These are just obvious documentable observations. So don't project that someone is pushing politics in their art when it is you bringing yours into your judgment
