Stunning return to form

Swedlund

The Harrow and the Harvest, Gillian Welch's first album in eight years, is 10 folk songs in the classic sense: tales of travelers, of everyday comforts and concerns—songs that work as still-life portraits of quiet, thoughtful moments. The album is Welch's true successor to Time (The Revelator), and though it has nothing as epic as "I Dream a Highway" or the two-part tale of "April the 14th" and "Ruination Day," nor as perfect as "Revelator," it's just as strong, and just as likely to lift a listener out of his own time. Welch and co-writer/producer David Rawlings are back to more traditional, spare arrangements. There are flourishes of harmonica and banjo, but Harrow is most often just the two guitars endlessly dancing around each other, and the two voices, rising and falling until they're welded into a delicate harmony. The Harrow and the Harvest shows that Gillian Welch is among those rare artists for whom masterpiece isn't a singular term.

JUST WANTED TO POINT THIS OUT:

DR_Jam

THE ALBUM COVER IS SATANIC. IT MIMICS THE INFAMOUS POSE OF BAPHOMET AS RULER. Just wanted to point that out. There's more satanic elements in this work, it's up to you to figure it out, with keen analysis, and doing some research on your own.

Two guitars and two voices fill a huge void. A fully realized album for the ages.

Thank goodness. Loved the first three albums; I still play them all the time, but didn't really care for Soul Journey. Now the long winter's come and gone, a little bird told me so. :)

They Say All Music Guide

Gillian Welch is an American bluegrass singer-songwriter, and The Harrow & The Harvest is her fifth full length studio album. Welch and her musical partner David Rawlings had not released an album in eight years prior to The Harrow & The Harvest, as they simply didn’t have any songs they liked enough to put out. The struggle of trying to write new material for years and then finally creating a record they liked was the inspiration for the album’s title., Rovi – Jack Semmence
