Album Review: 'Desire Road'

Posted on

Desire Road

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Bob Woodruff
genre:
Country

We gave it a B+

Woodruff’s sophomore effort veers all over the place stylistically, but it’s streaked with brilliance, as when he transforms Arthur Alexander’s soul classic ”Every Day I Have to Cry” into sheer country pathos. His specialty is cold, hard truth: ”That Was Then,” the saga of a country star on the skids, ought to scare the fire out of Nashville’s Ken-doll crooners. B+
