Her voice, her lyrics, her music are all worth the time

"Ann Reed has a great voice with some wonderful lyrics - it's a shame she doesn't get more credit for her artistry - which only proves to be the loss of people who don't get a chance to hear her. I fell in love with her voice in High School and still enjoy pulling out her old CD."
A too-well kept secret

"Ann Reed is among my favorite singers, yet few people I know have heard of her because she prefers to stay in her native Minnesota and her music is hard too find. It's a shame. She's an excellent songwriter and quitarist with a rich, velvety voice. The songs on this album are primarily serious songs about relationships. She does these as well as anyone, with mature, never sappy, lyrics. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because this is not my favorite of her albums. She has a wonderful sense of humor - song's on other albums include "Power Tools" (are a girl's best friend) and "Deep Fat Fryin' (don't do it in the nude). Her "Heroes", which lists her sheroes, is truly inspiring. This album lacks that sparkle and reminds me of a John Gorka album. It's mellow and satisfying, but doesn't knock my socks off."
