整张专辑曲风充满了浓浓的感伤情怀，老搭档Union Station这次退居幕后，仅以伴奏方式出现，简单的编曲，加上吉他、贝斯、斑鳩琴、曼陀林、民谣小提琴、杜布罗吉他，是张適合独处，气氛安静、心情有点寂寞的时候聆听的专辑，是全然acoustic的味道。开场的「别走」及结尾的「梦中有你」是电台DJ最常播放的曲目，前者敘述舊情人重逢，互道近況及感嘆無法有美好結局的無奈，简单的歌词配上Alison乾净的声音，令人伤感；后者是改编超级製作人 Allen Reynolds创作、桃莉芭顿名曲；「或许」原主唱是目前乡村音乐人气歌星Garth Brooks；「 屋中灵魂」描写感情渐淡的夫妻，虽然居住在同一屋簷下，却互相忽视对方的存在，空气中凝结的气氛、变调的爱情，及两个无视於对方的灵魂，无奈的情绪，都在Alison的歌声一一道出。
Alison Krauss, along with her band Union Station, is probably the best-known bluegrass artist currently recording. "Now That I Found You: A Collection" is a compilation of Alison's early work along with some new music. Even though she was only 23 when she released this CD in 1995, Alison had been recording since she was 16. Her pure voice shines through, and the songs are consistently excellent; however, three of them are real standouts.
"Baby, Now That I've Found You" is my favorite selection and simply one of the catchiest songs I've ever heard. Whenever I hear it, the tune gets imbedded into my mind and plays on a continuous loop for days. The song was originally a #11 pop hit in 1968 for the Foundations, who are perhaps better known for "Build Me Up Buttercup." It was only a minor country hit for Alison (#49 in 1995), although it netted her a Grammy for Best Country & Western Vocal Performance - Female. "When You Say Nothing At All" is Alison's biggest country hit, having peaked at #3 in 1995. What makes its success all the more amazing is that it was a #1 hit just seven years earlier for Keith Whitley. It's clearly become one of Alison's signature songs. The final standout for me is "I Will" written by those great bluegrass artists - Lennon and McCartney! Only a tremendous talent like Alison could make a Beatles song into a bluegrass masterpiece.
This CD was an unexpected hit - selling more than 2 million copies. It also helped Alison win 3 major Country Music Association Awards in 1995 - Horizon (best new artist), Female Vocalist, and Single of the Year for "When You Say Nothing At All." I'm by no means an expert on bluegrass, and I admit that most of the bluegrass CDs I own feature Alison Krauss. However, I certainly recognize quality music when I hear it, and "Now That I Found You: A Collection" is outstanding contemporary bluegrass. Most highly recommended.
