Guide Review
Alison Krauss - Forget About It
The songs on this album are mellow, and something you'd definately like to kick back and relax with. Nothing upbeat and wild here. Many of the songs have a sad feel to them, such as the Hugh Prestwood-penned song, "Ghost in This House," a cut that Shenandoah released some years back. Hugh Prestwood also wrote "The Song Remembers When" which was recorded by Trisha Yearwood, and "On The Verge," which was recorded by Collin Raye. The story is of a marriage that has gone bad, and the couple just exist in the same house without really seeing each other. Alison sings it with such feeling and the harmonies are wonderful!

One of my favorite Waylon Jennings songs has always been "Dreaming My Dreams With You," which Alison does with backing vocals from Lyle Lovett and Dolly Parton. The result is sheer pleasure. BTW, the song was written by Allen Reynolds who you might recognize as Garth Brooks' producer.

The album is not overly bluegrassy, with the exception of "Never Got Off The Ground," which does have a distinct bluegrass feel. Alison has her Union Station bandmates playing and vocalizing on the album with her. The song has a more pop or even jazz feel to it. Very soothing and one that would appeal to someone who's big into ballads. I highly recommend this to everyone.
