Guide Review - Holly Williams - The Ones We Never Knew
Leading off the record is Sometimes. It sounds similar to something that Mary Chapin Carpenter would sing and is a nice track to start off the record with. Everybodys Waiting For A Change is a story song that finds Holly talking to an old boyfriend about their bitter breakup (she says shell be fine while he thinks she wont). Would You Still Have Fallen finds Holly asking a boyfriend or maybe even her father, if hed still be the way he was without the drugs or alcohol if shed tried harder to keep him off of the stuff. Take Me Down deals with the pitfalls of relationships. Between Your Lines is one of the best Christian songs that Ive heard in a long time. All As It Should Be is an acoustic gem about the way life goes, everything is a circle in itself.
Holly Williams is a captivating artist along the lines of Patty Griffin, Patty Larkin, Julie Miller and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Those who like acoustic pop with touches of country music should give this album a chance. Its a very strong debut.
