Patty Loveless has created one of the most consistent bodies of work within contemporary country, and Long Stretch of Lonesome does nothing to erase the notion that she is one of the finest singers of the '90s. Stylistically, there isn't much difference between Long Stretch of Lonesome and her other records, but the key to its success is Loveless' unerring knack for picking the right material. Usually, contemporary country albums have a few hit singles surrounded by filler, but with any Loveless album, you can expect consistently excellent material, and this is no exception.
