NPR’s “All Songs Considered” recently released a list of what they see as the 50 most important recordings of the decade. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss made the alphabetical list with Raising Sand.
Meredith Ochs writes:
The pairing of a bona fide rock god with a Grammy-hoarding bluegrass darling raised eyebrows, not sand. But Robert Plant’s love of deep blues and Krauss’ roots-music credibility are well-matched on this 2007 collection of moody Americana. Producer T-Bone Burnett is the catalyst, choosing the material and the players. His snaky sonic stamp gives Raising Sand its vibe, while Plant’s subdued classic-rock caterwaul fits perfectly under and over Krauss’ honey-sweet vocals.
