Not Dark Yet was recorded in Los Angeles in the summer of 2016. The album provides a potent look at the sisters' individual and collective artistry through eclectic song choices from writers ranging from the Louvin Brothers, Nick Cave, Kurt Cobain, and back to Jessie Colter. Shelby and Allison wrap their arms around the past, plant their feet in the present, and nod toward what's around the bend with a co-written Is It Too Much to close out the ten-song set.

The quotation above is from "Is It Too Much", the closing song on "Not Dark Yet" the much anticipated new CD from Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer. The record more than fulfills its promise, as you will realize long before the closing song.
The Moorer girls are each superbly talented and their collaboration magnifies and spotlights the artistry of each while transcending those talents and transporting the listener to a place of wonder and beauty.
The incisive production of the record by Teddy Thompson and the fabulous musicianship of the players complement the vocal instruments in a subtle yet effective manner while suggesting that each song could be performed with little or no accompaniment and still move hearts in a remarkable direction.
A lyric found in "Into My Arms" declares that "I don't believe in the existence of angels" and with that I heartily disagree. Proof of their existence exists in the songs on this record.
Buy this record and thank me for the tip!

I thought the first two tracks are the weakest, with the album really coming alive with the title track and then continuing strongly.
The interplay between the two sisters is a joy and the supporting musicians are simply superb. Perhaps it would have been too much to ask to have Amanda Shires bringing her violin and vocals to The Color of a Cloudy Day, although that would have been something else.
A very fine album indeed, that grows on you the more you hear it. No, it's not groundbreaking and it's not the very best that either have produced, hence 4 rather than 5 stars, but mostly definitely worth buying.
