Editorial Review

At this point, Alela Diane is more bandleader than singer-songwriter. After mostly going it alone on her first two albums, her folk songs are now bolstered by Wild Divine, a backing band that adds a bit of muscle and texture that complement Diane’s alluring voice and nature-themed lyrics. Songs from “Alela Diane & Wild Divine” now have a gentle gallop and inviting twang. For those who can’t get enough of the ‘70s sounds of Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac, Diane provides a nice flashback without recycling old ideas.
