Some albums hover on the periphery for years before managing to catch your attention. You can never quite say what one it is going to be either. It happened to me with Jeff Buckley and Grace. I just didn't get it, but when I did I fell hard for it.
Motherland has just recently managed to grab me by the ears and holler just how good it is while admonishing me for the neglectful manner I have treated it.
I've listened to it many times and ho hummed through it while never really locking into just how majestic it is.
Yet here I am shouting from the rooftops that it's essential. Why the change of heart? Well I'm not really sure. It could be that Natalie is in fine voice and outstrips many of her vocal duties from her time with 10,000 Maniacs. Yes even the MTV Unplugged one. It may even be the quality of the song writing. Or it could be the rootsy flavour that shadows the material.
Then again it will probably be a combination of all of them. It doesn't really matter though, as it's a tower of strength from beginning to end. It's one of those very rare beasts that manages to grow with the listener over repeated visits. A definite desert island disc.
