Synopsis

Amazon.com
To those unfamiliar with Dee Carstensen, The Map at first blush sounds a great deal like Meredith Brooks. There are differences, however, and they're well worth noting. For one thing, Carstensen is a stronger singer, and for another, the arrangements on The Map are more adventurous than those on Blurring the Edges. Carstensen ventures into shuffle-beat territory with "Be My Man" (a more assertive song than the title suggests) and "Hurricane." "Holding Back an Ocean" is particularly evocative, with its rhythm and sonic texture emphasizing the theme. And there are some nice moments buried in songs that are otherwise unexceptional: The acoustic-guitar opening to "The Last Time It Mattered" is a strong point. Carstensen is also to be credited for tackling some pretty interesting themes; the yearning of "Saviour" and the mythical subject matter of "Pandora's Box" are especially notable. --Genevieve Williams

"This is a wonderful, moving album. Well written lyrics and music. Very good and well worth it. I do not understand why Dee is so unknown!"
Great album!

"I think this and her first album are her best.

This album is fantastic from beginning to end. Every song is a winner. I don't know why she's not more well known and appreciated than she is.

She has a great voice and her songs can give you goose bumps.

I love this album!"
