Taking the Long Way
(Columbia)
The blistering “Not Ready to Make Nice” still hits hard after months of airplay, as Natalie Maines wonders incredulously, “How in the world could the words that I said/send somebody so over the edge/that they’d write me a letter saying that I better/shut up and sing/or my life would be over?” immediately followed by Martie Maguire’s viChuck Teedorious violin solo. This is the best they’ve ever been, which is saying a lot.
