All Fall Down

All Fall Down by Shawn Colvin
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Nonesuch
Shawn Colvin is known for her direct lyrics and understated, airy music; and All Fall Down follows suit. In "Knowing What I Know Now," Colvin looks back on a failed relationship, summing it up with, "We had a love and it all went wrong/ I had a dream, and you let me down." Meanwhile, "Anne of the Thousand Days" looks at the unraveling of a relationship. In the narrative, Colvin goes from smug victor to yet another disappointed lover. A stellar cast, including Emmylou Harris, Jakob Dylan, Stuart Duncan and Alison Krauss, among others, adds to the complexity of Colvin's rich, colorful tapestry.
