I couldn't wait until June 19th for the release here in the USA so I had a friend in the UK buy and ship the CD to me last month. I was a bit skeptical at first...then played it through once and realized Don Williams still has it. How wonderful it is to hear that smooth voice once again, married to some great country lyrics. "Imagine That" and "Infinity" are two early favorites but the entire album is growing on me. This album is a gift to long-time fans of Don Williams and a great introduction to those who may not be familiar with his previous work. Outstanding! Read More

Returning from an extended semi-retirement that began after the 2004 release of My Heart to You -- a record that appeared on the little-known Compendia imprint -- Don Williams released the rather brilliant And So It Goes in 2012, an album so understated that it may be easy to overlook its excellence. Then again, if Williams has a signature, it's a touch so easy that it sometimes appears that he isn't there at all; he's never performing, he's inhabiting his songs. As the years rolled on and the tempos got slower and the productions softer, he could sometimes disappear into his surroundings, but And So It Goes achieves a nimble balance between comfort and virtuosity, an album where Williams feels entirely relaxed but never lazy. Supported by longtime producer Garth Fundis, Williams keeps things soothing -- nothing seems hurried or urgent, everything unspools at its own unhurried pace -- but nothing's too easy; there are love songs to be sure, but Williams also tackles bigger issues, pondering the meaning of "Infinity" and wondering "What If It Worked Like That." This balance of subtle spirituality and life experience has considerable resonance, particularly because it takes a little digging to get to the bigger issues. And So It Goes can be enjoyed as mere aural comfort food -- it's as welcoming as a warm bath -- but what gives it impact is its underlying, sometimes hidden, meanings. This may or may not be Williams' final album but if it is, it serves as a superb coda to a career that always found deep meaning in ease; it seems like anybody could do this, but if they could, somebody would have done it as well as Don Williams has by this point. Not only that, but Williams has not always done it as well as he does here. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Billboard (p.28) - "A great return to form by one of the format's best-loved artists, showing how timeless his sound was -- and is."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.83) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is Williams' ever-distinctive voice, allied to a line in unfailingly attractive material, such as 'Infinity' and the memorable title track, that provides this release with a patina of timelessness."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.85) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Wiliams' ever-distinctive voice, allied to the unfailingly attractive material such as 'Infinity' and the memorable title track, that gives this release a patina of timelessness."
Uncut (magazine) (p.85) - "Williams' horizontal approach makes for a refreshingly conversational set of songs, including 'I Just Come Here For The Music', a duet with longtime admirer Alison Krauss..."
