We gave it a B+

You scarcely believe she’s 28 and L.A.-bred, or that her original songs aren’t just rediscovered standards; Gillian Welch is a ringer for a real Appalachian, if not the long-lost li’l sis to the Stanley Brothers. Twangy tales of forlorn farm laborers, grieving moms and lovers, and Jesus sound impossibly, winsomely authentic in this T-Bone Burnett-produced collection. Revival certainly gets an early lead on debut-of-the-year honors.
