Brandi Carlile rocks the house on The Things I Regret. It’s not a song of celebration; quite the contrary; but, with it’s stomping drums and chanty refrain, it should be. Elsewhere the album isn’t quite as fun. She makes country/folk music that falls relatively easy on the ears, but there’s nothing special about most, if any, of it. Sparks are simply too far and few between, even when she’s belting her heart out with the Hanseroth twins harmonizing in the background.
