"Everyone who hears this CD at our house or while we are traveling, just raves about it. There is not a single "bad" song on it - they are all absolute keepers. Laura Love's voice and style are unique and her guitar playing is terrific. Her vocal range is wide and singing style eclectic. All the other vocals melded wonderfully on each song. My granddaughter loves the CD and would play it constantly if I'd let her! I'm looking forward to hearing Laura's other CDs. (Pass on to Laura if cant' put in review.) Laura if you're checking these reviews - thanks for being so kind to the "daughter of my heart" after one of your gigs with WVPR's Mountain Stage. You may recall she was severely burned. She didn't take the CD you signed for her back to Bolivia because no one she knows has a CD player, but we got her a tape and she says everyone there really likes it even if they can't understand the words! She made me take a picture of her with the CD so she would always remember you. She said that you treated her just like a regular kid and looked at her like she was pretty. It may seem like a little thing, but it was so important to her. Mucho gracias. God bless."
Afro-celtic at its best

"What exactly is afro-celtic, you ask? Buy the CD and find out. I also dig Laura's yodeling - she puts the "yo" in yodel. I first heard Laura play the Chico World Music festival, then listened to this CD all summer and never got tired of it. I now own it as a sort of "momento" of that summer, but the songs are still fresh and lively as ever. A good, wholesome rockin' CD for kids and adults alike. Support a great artist and buy this CD! The liner notes also include an interesting history of her life (written by Laura herself), which makes you appreciate even more her talent and her accomplishments, despite the serious hardships in her life."

"Laura Love is absolutely the most interesting new artist I've heard in years and this collection is a great intro. The music moves, the lyrics are thoughtful, the voice is fantastic (I don't think anyone else could turn a yodel into a moving experience!). All I can say is MORE, MORE, MORE."
