    Seattle Times: On Emmylou Harris's New Album, "We Know Gold When We Hear It"
    Rocky Schenck

    Emmylou Harris's US tour is now heading down the West Coast, bringing songs from her latest album, All I Intended to Be, and throughout her varied career, from Seattle to San Diego. After her performance at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo last Thursday night, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer pointed to everything from the "outstanding vocal harmonies" to what reviewer Bill White termed "hot and tasty instrumental rides" featured in the live set.

    The Seattle Times followed the concert with a review of the new album, asserting: "Emmylou Harris proves on her latest release that she still has one of the best voices in the business." Reviewer Alexis Larsen continues:

    The grace of her vocals and the restraint of her songwriting and song choices is what we've come to expect from Harris. The fact that she continues to deliver makes it even more impressive ... [W]e know gold when we hear it.

    David Byrne's American Utopia tour made its way to the UK for a week of sold-out shows, all met with rave reviews, starting with the NME's declaration: "The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time." "An unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre," exclaims the Telegraph. "This was something special." "One of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see," says the Independent. "Perfection." "Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman. "An extraordinary, ecstatic show."
