(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great album with a strong personal touch. The songs are really emotional - not that sappy, honey-laden fake emotion we hear too often, and not the indiscriminate, inarticulate "everybody sucks, life sucks, I hate everything and aren't I ironic?" kind either. (Two guesses who I'm talking about). This album is real. Sampou sings her stories like they actually mean something, and knows how to make the lyrics tell the story. Even though this isn't my usual musical cup of tea - the blues-rock with folk sensibilities and minor key guitar work doesn't really get me moving in most cases - I love this album. Buy it, and forget about the top-ten "singer songwriter" fakes."
Another great offering

"Its hard to decide what I like most about this CD - the great lyrics or the great music..... Les Sampou writes lyrics that paint stories with emotion and punch. Theres a great mix of tunes here as well - Sitting on Jupitor (if you've heard her live you may know it as "thin blue line"), Same fine line and Hanging by a thread being favorites of mine. Check it out!"
