Like its immediate predecessor, 2005's MY BETTER SELF, PROMISED LAND is a full-band pop rock album with only some of the folk feel of Massachusetts singer-songwriter Dar Williams's early releases. Also like MY BETTER SELF, PROMISED LAND shows that his emotionally direct lyrics and warm vocal style are a perfect fit with this style of low-key electric pop, as shown on tracks like the first single "It's Alright" and the jangly rocker "Go To The Woods." Suzanne Vega and Marshall Crenshaw are among the guests.
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.51) - "Williams gets the balance right on PROMISED LAND, where hooky, pop-flavored choruses serves as upbeat counterpoint to yearning Americana and unadorned folk."
Paste (magazine) (p.64) - "PROMISED LAND's guest lineup has sterling bona fides...[With] power-pop chameleon Marshall Crenshaw, Gary Louris of Americana demigods The Jayhawks, and veteran singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega, who sounds both expert and fresh on the springy, spring-loaded duet 'Go To The Woods.'"
