We gave it a C+

Amid the bombast, Breakdown introduces a softer side of Melissa Etheridge: low-key songs and a lot of hand-wringing about ”soul.” Problem is, low-key subtlety isn’t her strong point. ”Angels Would Fall,” which parades earnest spirituality, does have a terminally anthemic classic-rock chorus. Unfortunately, it’s a lonely exception.
