Top-notch songwriter notches another top-notch LP / 4
Nashville is full of great songwriters hoping to break as performers. Sadly, the commercial return on their written works often dwarfs that from their recordings. Such is Jim Lauderdale's lot: his songwriting tops the charts with hits by George Strait, Patty Loveless and others, while his albums and collaborations with pals like Buddy Miller, amass critical praise far in excess of sales.

Songwriters often fashion themselves vocalists, but haven't the pipes to back it up. That's not the case here. Lauderdale's baritone has the confidence and style of a seasoned performer. The result is an energetic album of superb songwriting, solo and in collaboration with legends Howard Harlan, Frank Dycus and Melba Montgomery. The lyrical craft shines through a timely Titanic metaphor, "Didn't know my heart was in harm's way / Couldn't see the truth `til it was in my face / If I'd seen it coming, could have turned away," while the dance floor calls out for the honky-tonk recriminations of "Goodbye Song" and "Hole in My Head." "Take Me Down a Path (My Heart Won't Know)" could easily be mistaken as a good page from the Buck Owens' songbook.

Whether or not it eats up the charts, "Whisper" screams.
