Picks and Pans Review: When Fallen Angels Fly

Patty Loveless

Patty Loveless's music is neither nouveau folk (à la Mary-Chapin Carpenter) nor flashy country (like Lorrie Morgan). Nonetheless, Loveless manages to turn out some of the most listener-friendly country around. She has a sultry presence, whether growling out rowdy boot-stompers like "I Try to Think About Elvis" or cooing quietly on a slow, pretty tune like "Ships." Songs like the title track and "You Don't Even Know Who I Am" are thoughtful, emotional ballads. What makes this album something special, though, is that her voice is so pleasant and honey smooth and her lyrics are so conversational; listening to her CD is like chatting with a close friend. It's this simple approach that lets Loveless stand out from the competition. (Epic)"
