One Lost Day - Vanguard 2015
Most often, Amy Ray is behind the most rocking songs, and this is also the case of "One Lost Day" where "Happy in the Sorrow Key" and "Olympia Inn" are almost pure rockers - both very catchy. Among Rays more melodic and soft songs "Texas was Clean" is a really fine song, maybe a little in the vein of "Moment of Forgiveness" from "Become You".
Emily Saliers, on the other hand, most often is responsible for the more melancholy and sensitive songs; often with very melodic and catchy melodies. Several of Emily’s songs, however, this time have also got a little more"power" than what is normally the case. Musically, "Learned it on Me" shows the duo expanding their normal expression. Very fine lyrics also from Emily.
Emily's opening number "Elizabeth" is probably the album's most catchy and must be a sure future live favorite.
