4th Street Feeling (Bonus Tracks)

4th Street Feeling by Melissa Etheridge
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Island Records
If you prefer your Etheridge smoked and not popped, then 4th Street Feeling will definitely appeal to your sensibilities. Building on 2010's Fearless Love, the album feels like a passionate tribute to the heartland rock of her Jayhawk childhood. Echoes of Springsteen, Raitt, Mellencamp and Seger can be felt on the gritty declarations "Shout Now" and "A Sacred Heart," as well as the more ruminative numbers "Falling Up" and "Enough Rain." All these tunes benefit from Etheridge's knack for detail: a tasty blues lick here, some funk groove there, a banjo bubbling up out of nowhere and so on.
