  • GERONIMO is the kind of rootsy affair you'd expect from a southerner like Lucinda Williams, which makes it all the more remarkable an accomplishment coming from New Yorker Shannon McNally. But with help from producer/multi-instrumentalist Charlie Sexton, McNally easily arrives at the crossroads of soul, blues, and country. She expertly uses her honeyed twang to switch gears from Bonnie Raitt-like shuffles ("Miracle Mile") to more raucous fare reminiscent of The Allman Brothers Band ("The Hard Way").
  • Sexton's warm production aids the cause; among the nifty nuances are Greg Leisz's unobtrusive pedal steel guitar on the dreamy lament "The Worst Part of a Broken Heart" and the hint of steel drum that makes Taj Mahal's "Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes" all the more endearing. Like Williams, McNally writes about memorable characters, such as the innkeeper at the heart of the ethereal "Leave Your Bags By the Door." McNally has always professed love for her adopted hometown of New Orleans, so the inclusion of swamp-pop legend Bobby Charles's wistful "Tennessee Blues" is a fitting homage and a nice addendum to this Americana-inspired sophomore outing.
