Osborne wrote several of the tunes on this album, including the title track, "Who Divided" (the first "single"), and "Shake That Devil", which are all highlights of Pretty Little Stranger. This new record also includes songs written by Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Garcia / Robert Hunter, and Patty Griffin. Guest artists include Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Sonny Landreth and Rodney Crowell, who provides harmony vocals on "When The Blue Hour Comes."
There's not a whole lot of Joan's signature "belting it out" style on this new album, but it does include some of her best ballad singing to date.
