A little vulnarabilty goes along way
This album marks a return to form from what the Independent on Sunday calls the Violent femme. She may have given Richard Thompson a few bruises on the shins but she has learnt how to write good songs as a result. Her voice is vulnarable and she can only sing in the studio (she cannot sing live because of dysphonia) but it gives the CD a strength and a strong sense of purpose. The title song has a beautiful distorted silver band which harps back to I want to see the bright lights. The range and breadth of songs is what is impressive and it has that timeless quality that only the Thompsons, Denny and Fairport can convey.
Superb moving music
This is one of the best albums I've bought in a very long time. Bought it ten years after it came out, but that doesn't matter. The arrangements are tasteful with a great guitar sound. LInda's voice, as ever, get's right into your heart. It's her story and she's telling to you, yes you! Buy it!
