For her 15th album, the singer-songwriter explores pain—physical and emotional—and the ways Americans medicate. It’s a call for marijuana legalization, a rallying cry against opioids and a plea for unity. On expansive rocker "Faded By Design," the cancer survivor eschews Western medicine for self-care: "Don't call the doctor / The cure is in my mind." The spare and lovely "Here Comes the Pain" empathizes the root cause of addiction, while "Woman Like You" explores feminism and changing norms against a swirling, McCartney-esque melody. Etheridge has said that she was going for a ’90s rock sound—"moody and fierce." With its giant grunge guitars and swooning chorus, "Shaking," a look at collective national anxiety, hits the bulls-eye. As does the fierce, arena-rock title track which proves that Etheridge can make "e-i-e-i-oh" sound tough as nails. Even drawing courage from the survivors of a mass shooting on period-perfect power ballad "Last Hello" she never condescends. There is nothing small or shy in Etheridge’s songs, and it’s refreshing. © Qobuz
