CD: Gillian Welch - The Harrow and the Harvest

It has been eight years since Gillian Welch last released an album and her loyal fans – not to mention critics - have been waiting with bated breath.

Or will she have kept the hit-and-miss drums, the electric guitar and the chirpier outlook of her last album Soul Journey? Thankfully, the answer is the former: The Harrow and the Harvest might well be her best record yet.
