One of the most amazing CDs I ever bought... EVER

by joshuastibb@yahoo.com on 11/30/2007

Robert Plan or Alison Krauss alone are amazing artists. But putting them together is just stellar. I heard about this CD from thier interview on NPR and the CD is everything I expected and more. Its nothing like you've ever heard either of them perform before!

Great artists and composition but ...

by ff100-550 on 12/1/2007

The music is fantastic and the combination of Robert Plant and Aison Krauss, although daring at first, it's an excellent mix. The disappointing part is the mastering of this album. The drums and bass instruments overwhelm the artist voices and the 'shinny and sparkling' voice of Alison Krauss is muffled. I would recommend the album for the interesting music, of course if you can ignore the poor recording.

Product Overview

The musical collaboration of the decade, Raising Sand is the sound of two iconic figures stepping out of their respective comfort zones and letting their instincts lead them across a brave new sonic landscape. Despite hailing from distinctly different backgrounds, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant share a maverick spirit and willingness to extend the boundaries of their respective genres.

This spirit, expertly honed by producer T Bone Burnett, has resulted in an album pitched three steps beyond some cosmic collision of early urban blues, spacious West Texas country, and the untapped potential of the folk-rock revolution.

Supported by the unparalleled musicianship of Marc Ribot, Dennis Crouch, Mike Seeger, Jay Bellerose, Norman Blake, Greg Leisz, Patrick Warren, and Riley Baugus, Plant and Krauss - as both solo and harmony vocalists - tackle an intriguing selection of songs from such tunesmiths as Tom Waits, Gene Clark, Sam Phillips, Townes Van Zandt, The Everly Brothers, and Mel Tillis. Raising Sand finds Robert Plant and Alison Krauss exploring popular music's elemental roots while still sounding effortlessly, breath-takingly contemporary.
