Lera Lynn - On My Own

 

Touted as a career changing album, well, that's pretty close. Lera's pitch is very similar to Sara Bareilles, that's about it for commonality, very thoughtful and haunting album., one of those that draw you in. Production is spot on., very highly recommended.

One of those albums when ends is far too sudden.

 

DR10 bodes well, great image and depth across the sound stage, these guys did well with that. 

 

WTF Roon Radio, plays this album after On my own....?!

I listened to this album the other day, I agree with your assessment!

I heard this song while listening to MPRs 89.3 The Current, and decided to give the album a listen, so...

You don't need to bother listening to this album, the one song is the only one worth a listen, IMO.

I have to say, some of the songs on this album are some of his best work in a long time and recorded as well or almost as well as (the song) The Ghost of Tom Joad while other selections leave me in wondering, WTF. However, overall, even accounting for the tracks I find a little too much for my likes, really good. 

 

Some of the songs are older, some are new, so that may account for part of the difference in recording quality/technology.

Indeed, overall I like the albums where the artist already matured and is not totally going for money, but rather for music fun, enjoyment and sentiment in that case. Vinyl record is on the way BTW :-)

I like this album but not quite as much as Western Stars, especially the film version.

Jud,

 

While you are absolutely correct about some of the songs being older, there is no difference in recording. Bruce recorded the entire album, with the E Street Band, live, over a three day period. Other than a very rare overdub, nothing was changed from the actual live recordings. And, to me, the energy of this album captures some of Bruce's older, live performances vibe. I love the record!
