Album Review: "I Pray For My Enemies" by Joy Harjo (8/10)

Sunyata Records

Producers: Barrett Martin and Joy Harjo

On Harjo’s epic, expansive, emotionally hard hitting, reflective, provocative and ultimately healing and dare we say joyful first album in a decade, the incumbent U.S. Poet Laureate—the first Native American to hold that honor—and award winning musical artist and saxophonist joins forces with producer Barrett Martin and rock legends Peter Buck, Mike McCready, Krist Novoselic and Rich Robinson to deliver timely and timeless (and sometimes quirky) messages to a world in desperate need. Don’t let getting caught up in the groove stop you from taking words from her trademark poems and soulful new expression to heart.
