Yesterday the new Ray Lamontagne album "Gossip in the Grain" hit the stands. Lucky for me my good friend RP pre-ordered it and provided me with the disc last night. I'm standing strong in my belief that Ray is the best lyricist ever. Or at least in my humble opinion. His voice is brilliance, the words are moving and the music is just all around amazing! Definitely different from his last two albums, but that soulful sound is still there. In addition Ray has managed to write songs for more ladies, including Meg White. Ray loves his ladies. Maybe one day Ray will write a song for me, I have the lyrics in my head already!
