This album is superb. Superb and terrifying, seemingly held in thrall to narratives we have some idea of (Moorer's father killed her mother when she was 13 in a murder-suicide) and others we don't -- tales of broken girls and tough women, of starry summer nights and inevitable confrontations with sorrow. She finds a voice that bears no quibbling, a voice that seems finally, fully her own -- dreamy, melancholic, piano-heavy, country but not country. Crows is not perfect, but it's a full artistic statement, ardent and alive, and Moorer's most exciting release by a mile.
