Like all of her previous work, the new record is fi lled with songs of emotional integrity. She covers Chicago’s “If You Leave Me Now” and creates a totally new vibe by stripping the song down to its emotional core and rebuilding it with a tight acoustic ensemble. Verlon Thompson’s “No Good Way To Go” is an inner diolog on how to end a relationship, half sung and half spoken with smoldering sexuality. She turns to husband/songwriter Doug Crider for “In Heaven,” the emotional centerpiece of the album. The song, which deals with love, loss, letting go and moving on, is especially poignant because it was written about close friends of Bogguss and Crider. It also has an incredible, instantly, memorable melody.
She remains consistent in her unwillingness to be defi ned by the expectations of others. She’s always been the type of artist to boldly listen to her instinct and chase that wily muse where it leads her. Suzy Bogguss has always, and will always take the road less traveled...and that has made all the difference.
