Title - ‘On Your Way Home’ (Epic)
Artist - Patty Loveless
Patty Loveless has knocked this one completely out of the park. Nothing she has previously recorded compares to this set of extremely intelligent, funny, heart-wrenching, and explosive tunes. She and husband Gordy, Jr. should be recognized both critically and commercially for this recording. The toe-tapping first single "Lovin' All Night" is a smash, but flip over to the B-side of this one and you'll wonder why "Nothin' Like the Lonely" won't be released as a single as well. Surely deciding which songs will be released was a difficult task. The title track will likely be Patty's next number one hit, and remind even the most marginal of fans why she has left a lasting footprint on not only country music, but across every musical genre as well. Her voice is superb, sweet, and crystal-clear, with her delivery profound and quite effective. The music speaks for itself. Every music fan should treat themselves with this one in their CD collection. Thank you, Patty.
