After creating a nearly perfect debut album, Kate & Anna McGarrigle had the unenviable task of trying to make lighting strike in the same place a second time, and on 1977's Dancer with Bruised Knees, the sisters seemed to be making a very deliberate effort to try something that felt different while still reflecting their very distinct personality. And for the most part, they succeeded; Dancer with Bruised Knees is more willfully idiosyncratic than the McGarrigles first LP, with the same blend of lovely, folky melodies and all but flawless harmonies alongside a set of songs that build.
