Album Review

There was an eight-year gap between the first and second solo albums by Jennifer Kimball, and Oh Hear Us was actually recorded about a couple of years prior to its early 2006 release.

While it's not exactly poppy, songs such as "Is He or Isn't He" boast some respectable bittersweet, country-shaded hooks.
