Emmylou Harris continues to mine the sedate, enticing vibe that animated her last two studio albums, "Wrecking Ball" and "Red Dirt Girl." Malcolm Burn, who produced the latter set, again lends his light sonic touch to the proceedings. Harris—who wrote or co-wrote everything here except the traditional French tune "Plaisir D'Amour"—gets excellent support from a cast that includes Linda Ronstadt, Buddy and Julie Miller, Jane Siberry and Daniel Lanois. While the style and sound is no longer the revelation it was when it opened a new chapter in Harris' career, this is a very affecting record. Some of the material—"Here I Am," "Can You Hear Me Now" and "Time in Babylon"—ranks with the singer's best writing. No longer just a neo-country diva, Harris is still carving an interesting niche for herself.—CM
