CD Review: Melissa Etheridge 

4th Street Feeling (Island)

On her last album, 2010's Fearless Love, Melissa Etheridge sounded ready to fight, taking on anti-gay-marriage supporters with her toughest set of songs in years. She takes a breath on her 12th album, checking in with a bluesy, twangy set that's more bar-band bluster than change-the-world pensive. The best songs on 4th Street Feeling (the R&B-leaning title track, the backroads country twang of "Falling Up") sound folksy, worn-in, and sorta lazy.
