Amoeba Review

05/12/2014

Queen D returns with her 42nd album, a diverse collection of elegant country with tinges of Parton's native bluegrass. Particularly of interest is "Banks of the Ohio," a clever re-imagining of the traditional murder ballad from the perspective of Parton as a detective or journalist, hearing the grisly romance unfold. The record also possesses some ecstatic gospel, filtered through both culturally osmosed psychedelia and top 40 4-on-the-floor country. A cover of Dylan's "Don't Think Twice" is a welcome addition, not just to Parton's record but to the canon of artists who have covered that song prior. It's hard to imagine Parton making unintentional music and Blue Smoke is no exception. This album, like most Parton albums, will make either a fine addition to your Parton discography or a gateway to new country-pop discovery.
