Recorded with returning producer Ethan Johns in Box, England, and touching upon a range of styles and musical settings -- spanning pastoral folk, railroad blues, front porch country, and plangent balladry -- Gossip in the Grain proves to be Ray's most creative and emotionally expansive collection to date. Don't miss his paean to the White Stripes drummer, "Meg White."

Every song on this album is great. On this album, more than on his other albums, Ray shows off his versatility. Great lyrics, great vocals, great music - haunting at times, energizing at others. I can't praise this album enough!
