As a true artist, Ashley Monroe doesn't milk the same cow twice. She drastically expands her sound on "The Blade," which means that you can hear pretty much amazing tunes here – from the folksy ones to the magnificent post-country on "From Time to Time." The butt-swaying opener "On to Something Good" warms you up with sexy bleating on the high notes. The slowcore masterpiece "Bombshell" informs you that she's going to take the listeners by the throat with strong emotions, and not autobiographical facts. The inspired first 33 seconds of "Weight of the Load" are worth the whole average Nashville album. The cuckoo piano keys on "Winning Streak" are the perfect musical warning to all the gamblers. We should be really thankful to the White Holes of the universe for blessing our dying planet with such a talented woman.
