Dar Williams's sixth studio album finds the acclaimed Massachusetts-based singer/songwriter applying her thoughtful brand of folk/pop to a handful of covers, along with her potent original tunes. Here Neil Young's "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" gets a chiming, uplifting treatment (with help from Marshall Crenshaw), and Ani DiFranco joins Williams for an atmospheric version of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb." Aided by Patty Larkin, Williams closes MY BETTER SELF with one of her finest songs, "The Hudson," a gentle, resonant tune that perfectly caps the record.
