Considered by many to be one of America's greatest living songwriters, Williams lives up to that and more by delivering twelve new songs that cover an even wider emotional spectrum than her previous work, without slipping too far into any one direction.
Blessed opens with the gritty kiss-off "Buttercup", then moves seamlessly into the sultry blues of "Born To Be Loved".Williams delves into a heavier subject as she questions the motives for a suicide on the hard-driving "Seeing-Black", which features blistering guitar sections from Elvis Costello.The thoughtful title track slowly builds to a melodic climax as it offers an eye-opening look at what's right in front of us, though too often unnoticed. The poignant and powerful "Soldier's Song" simultaneously tells a tragic story of the soldier overseas and his wife and child back home. On the gorgeous "Kiss Like Your Kiss", Williams lays down one of the most beautiful and fragile vocals she has ever recorded. The original version of the song appeared on the True Blood: Music from the HBO Original Series - Vol.2 and was recently nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.
