When this came out, I felt like I was swimming against the stream because I liked it, quite a bit actually, and it wasn't necessarily all that well-received. I think the song writing is very strong, mostly, and if I remember right, this was the album that she changed out most if not all of her band. The previous few albums, the lead guitar player, think his name is Doug Pettibone, was, IMO, an over-player, a wanker, who distracted from the songs with his gymnastics. I saw her here during that time frame, and my opinion was reinforced. Any rate, Blessed was more cohesive and just generally stronger than the previous few efforts.billfort;n27898 said:

Another Tidal discovery. Wow, what a roller-coaster ride, great stuff.
