Counting blessings

The title song of Lucinda William's new album that came out last month, "Blessed".

Something is going on with Lucinda. She sounds drunk now even when she's sober. Hopefully not something that's fatal...

  1. I gave it about 1:15 and gave up. Most boring damned thing I've heard in a long, long time.

    And she does sound drunk. That is worrying. I wonder if she has some serious medical problem.


  2. Turns out Lucinda was born with spina bifida. The pain gets worse as you age and the spine breaks down the way it normally does. Makes you wonder what kind of pain she's in, and what medication she's taking to deal with it.

    Just speculating, of course. But she definitely does not sound right. True, she's 59 years old and thus has a right to sound a bit tired, but this is worrying.

    Oh, about the album -- like you, I found it largely underwhelming. But I could not justifiably omit mentioning it on the blog, for reasons of being a fan...
