[CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN CASUAL] Pronounced Eugene's Next Big Thing of 2010—a somewhat backhanded compliment for a town known more for tailbacks than singer-songwriters—Anna Gilbert spent the last few years ghosting ditties for major labels without releasing any of her own work, save one achingly sincere Christmas collection, but she's back assaulting the AAA gates with fifth album proper, The Able Heart. Recorded largely in Nashville with guests including guitarists from MuteMath and Sixpence None The Richer—fellow travelers in the Christian-but-not-so-you'd-notice musical community—Gilbert knows how to craft an affecting ballad, and though the lyrical generalities grow wearying, a tender warble reminiscent of the young Shawn Colvin forgives much.
