"SATURN RETURN was our first exposure to Cosy Sheridan. We purchased the album after a five-song "taste" at a concert, and enjoyed it after the first play. Hundreds of plays later, it's won and held its status as an all-time personal favorite!"Broken Place" opens this collection, with a muse on the bruises and terrors and injuries that often become stronger after repair. The theme of acceptance flows easily into "Perfect," acknowledging the necessity for "giving up wings for these needful feet of clay." The mood lightens with "Car Phones and Airplanes," a dreamy love song of how it might be if she and her lover were wildly affluent.The unmistakable Sheridan humor bursts forth in "Roadfood," an engaging comic piece about cross country driving:"I've eaten everything in reach of the front driver's seat / But there's more in the back of the car / I'd have to lose a little time to make those Doritos mine / I've tried, I can't reach that far.""Blue Angels" is Cosy in a more pensive place, still travelling but on her way home now. (The title is a reference to the planes that "fly wing to wing all alone.") More bawdy Sheridan humor is represented in "Turboyeast," often a concert favorite. "Late Night Love Talk" and "My Good Companion" are separate sides of a woman evolving into a level of maturity, content with a lover or drawing boundaries with a self-destructive friend: "I've lost the romance for wounds that won't heal / I don't think we find our courage getting broken on the wheel."This powerful album closes with the stirring "Walk Into Heaven," a wonderful gospel-flavored hymn with strong traditional appeal. Finding strength and hope is a familiar theme in Cosy Sheridan compositions, and it's presented here in a way that invites singing along.Cosy Sheridan is an artist who blends the very best of acoustic music. She is a superb and concise lyricist, whose economy of expression rivals the best published poetry. Musically her compositions are delightful, and her deft touch on the guitar is flawless. She carries a message of strength and spirituality woven in with an inescapable dry wit. (Pardon the hyperbole: my husband and I admit that we would BOTH like to have her babies, but that's another review...)If you're a long-time Cosy fan, don't miss this one. And if you haven't heard Cosy Sheridan but have room in your collection for a new voice, I can almost guarantee that you'll enjoy this. (Head bangers need not apply...)"
A nice find

"I picked this one up just on the strength of the label (Waterbug). I've just found so much good music is put out by them. This is no exception. Give Carry Me off the Field a listen. This CD is well worth having."
