This album owes a bit more to Southern rock and country than Newcomer's previous albums, although there's no trace of growl or twang. Producers Mark Williams and Roger Meitus have colored her very conventional folk songs with a few more electric guitars, and Newcomer's deep vocals have grown increasingly uninhibited. Her lyrics have a palpable honesty about them, although they are not inventively written.

Unfortunately, Newcomer has yet to sell her songs on CD as well she does in person.
