I got an advance copy of Donna Ulisse’s Walk This Mountain Down some time ago. I don’t have time to review every album that comes in – and I try to make that clear to people before they send me stuff – but I have been meaning to review this album because it’s really, really solid. So solid that it inspired me to seek out her earlier bluegrass album, When I Look Back, almost immediately. And that doesn’t happen very often.
But albums don’t review themselves (with the possible exception of albums by Rascal Flatts, which seem almost like self-parodies), and this one has just been sitting on my shelf. I might still do something on it, but for now I’ll advise you to go check out the review by Occasional Hope at My Kind of Country, which sums up my feelings pretty well. They’re doing great work at MKoC, so check the rest of the blog out too if you haven’t already.
And do give Donna Ulisse a listen on Myspace. She’s good.
