Year of Meteors
by Laura Veirs
Released: Aug 2005
The Seattle chanteuse creates another gorgeous high-concept album. This time her organizing principle is travel, whether a blighted vacation or fighting the inertia of staying in a bad relationship. Veirs' brittle images are an icy dose of unwelcome pain, and her narrative is so specific it's hard not to think this is her own autobiography despite her exquisite detachment.
