After one of the most rapturously received solo debuts by any folk artist, Sweet Liberty comes with a lot of expectations. It's no great surprise then that Cara Dillon and partner/producer Sam Lakeman haven't strayed far from the formula that made Dillon such a success. Although there's less reliance on traditional songs, this new album uses many of the same musicians and sticks to similarly sparse crystalline arrangements that periodically build into crescendos, but neatly avoid bombast by subsiding gracefully just when they should.
