Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 8/19/99, p.115
3 stars out of 5 - "...lovely in a rueful, melancholy way, hanging together as a meditation on an aftermath that calls to mind Neil Young's masterly COMES A TIME..."
Spin - 10/99, p.155
7 out of 10 - "...Krauss' voice is a natural marvel, just about the prettiest sound that ever did grace a country album, and she can rescue nearly any lyrical banality by milking it for the high lonesome heartbreak it's concealing..."
Entertainment Weekly - 8/6/99, p.65
"...the sweetest voice in country music....Here she delivers a set of pop weepers leavened with string-band twang....austere arrangements and those marvelous pipes redeem all." - Rating: B+
Q - 9/99, p.108
4 stars (out of 5) - "...acoustic-based, accessible and probably timeless, filled with such soft delights....Exquisite."
Down Beat - 7/00, p.76
4.5 stars out of 5 - "...Shows more of her love for the pop side of things...this is a player's record....The moods are generally blue, but the playing and the artistry is joyful, supporting Krauss' laments with aplomb."
Dirty Linen - 2-3/00, p.86
"...Krauss delivers several heart-rending performances....for anyone with a hankering for lush, moving ballads, this is good news."
Mojo (Publisher) - 9/99, p.96
"...soar away beyond the custom and practice of genre, away above the muso pride and egotism of the master technicians involved....Krauss goes for complication, but gloriously so, with edgy vocal or violin harmonies which might be called high lonesome..."

Alison Krauss is a genuine rarity: a bluegrass singer and fiddle player who achieved popularity without altering or commercializing her sound. On FORGET ABOUT IT, she again fuses bluegrass, country, and pop influences, covering unlikely tunes and making them sound fresh and new. Though there are very few true bluegrass tunes in this set, the bluegrass sound is here in full force.
The close harmonies, Krauss' high, lonesome soprano, and the traditional-sounding dobro and fiddle are all at the heart of the sound here. The songs are mostly slow, subdued expressions of romantic melancholy and heartbreak. The musicianship is, as usual, both immaculate and inspired. Dolly Parton and Lyle Lovett show up to give harmony to the lovely closing track, "Dreaming My Dreams With You." FORGET ABOUT IT also contain some of Krauss' most memorable singing. A beautiful piece of work.
