Best of 2015: Venus by Joy Williams

Venus by former Civil Wars member Joy Williams that I didn't take to right away. I had to listen to the album several times for the music to grow on me. I really wasn't expecting an album heavily electronic based but from what I have read online Joy didn't want to be pigeonholed for just her work with The Civil Wars. I have to admit the ballads on the album are my favorite tracks especially "You Loved Me" and "Welcome Home" which sounds like songs Joy's former band would have put out. Not really crazy about "Woman (Oh Mama)". I find the song really obnoxious to listen to thankfully that is the only song on the entire album I don't like.
