The first time I heard her sing I thought I was in heaven. she has such a sweet voice. I discovered I like Bluegrass and gospel because of her.Do I have any fellow fans at mylot?

Alison Krauss - Forget About It - Her new album. Something of a departure from her recordings with Union Station (though the musicians on the album include Union Station members).
She has a superb, light voice and a wonderful, expressive of interpreting every song she sings. Listening to her gives me the same feeling of marvel at her control as I get from watching doves flying. I feel that everything she sings about is from personal experience (though that would seem to make her life a very sad one!) Her association with Union Station makes a brilliant combination. Although the band is classed as Bluegrass, they push the envelope of the music to lift it way out of the ordinary run of the genre. Alison, herself, is also a tremendously competent and sensitive fiddler. It is impossible to say whether she is a better singer or instrumentalist. As I write this, I am listening for the first time to her new album, Forget About It, which is rather different from her previous ones - I haven't decided on a favorite track yet! I first came across her singing from the CD of O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Ach! forgive the typos! '... expressive WAY of ...' (Now on my second run through the album!)

Oooops! I just looked at the back. It's not her latest, at all, it was recorded in 1999, I see! Well, it's new to me, anyway.

You are a good critic. I first heard her sing on Jay Leno. She has a gospel album out that is really neat, too. she does quite a lot of different types of music within her genre. When I saw "Oh Brother" I pricked up my ears and said "that's Allison Kraus!" My husband and I went to a concert she gave in Salt Lake City a few years ago. It was one of the highlights of my life!
