When I was a kid, I had a thing for honey. There was nothing I liked more than sucking the last few thick, sticky, sweet, smooth drops of honey out of the little plastic bears you get from the grocery store. Listening to Mary Chapin Carpenter’s new album “The Things That We Are Made Of” is just like getting the last few drops out of an old honey bear – smooth, sweet, and oh so satisfying.
And that, my friends, is why I don’t do music reviews. :0)
Seriously, though, NPR is currently streaming Carpenter’s new album (out May 6) and you owe it to yourself to go and take a listen. The entire album is soothing and smooth and goes down like warm honey and listening will definitely help you make it through the two remaining days of the work week.
