Tears, Lies, and Alibis

Shelby Lynne’s latest offers a lighter take on life than what her fans have come to expect. Here, dark and ponderous are replaced by light and clarity. Songs like the wistful and innocent “Rains Came” and “Something to Be Said,” drawn from her everyday experiences like camping or missing home, sound authentic in her restrained delivery, drawing the listener deeper into her evocative stories. Simple imagery has always been a focal point in Shelby’s music, and songs like the quiet “Alibi,” which finds a wife pretending to sleep while her wayward husband comes home late again, or the bluesy “Old Dog” (I’m just like an old dog / searching for a porch to lie on) hold up well. The gorgeous “Like a Fool” features understated guitar work and chilling piano touches throughout. Shelby won’t need an alibi for this collection.
