Mary Chapin Carpenter, “It Must Have Happened”
What the hell? Chapin signs with a folk-oriented indie label and puts out her most aggressive single in years? I’m shocked. I was ready to be put to sleep by a lifeless ballad, and “It Must Have Happened” is a throwback to her earliest Columbia hits, all spitfire, hot lead guitar and bitter lyrics.
Chapin sounds absolutely rejuvenated. Welcome back.
