Synopsis

Amazon.com
Carson sings in a super-high range that gives the effect of a young girl on helium, but while her touch is lighter than air, her concerns often sink to levels of unflattering humanity. "Whole Heart" candidly discusses sexual and physical abuse, while "Black Thumb" expresses an incredible amount of self-doubt. "Train" follows the harrowing end of a mind left to think too much. All of which would be just psychobabble for the shrink's couch if it weren't for the exquisite melodies and perfectly complimentary arrangements that never overpower Carson's fragile voice. A cover of Todd Rundgren's "I Saw The Light" is the album's "breather." --Rob O'Connor

"These songs are beautiful, tasteful and thoughtfully crafted. I normally don't like "pop" music, but this album is different. You won't find mindless drone or stupid lyrics repeated over and over and over. What you find instead is the soul of a sensitive, gifted songwriter. She is a master of melody. Impressive. Lori seems to be made of her music. It's a part of her. Where It Goes (my favorite album of Lori's) is also highly recommended."
Excellent

"Lori Carson has always been a talented, adventerous artist, but none of her solo albums or her outstanding collaborations with the Golden Paliminos could have prepared listeners for the gorgeous, sensuous songs here. From the hauting and delicate "Souvenirs" to the languidly erotic "Somethings Got Me", this is pop songcraft of the highest order. I have recommended this disc to many friends and each one of them has thanked me for turning them on to this wonderful singer/songwriter."
Beautiful...

"Her raspy voice puts me in a trance with her semi-acoustic jazzy folk alternative style. Lori Carson is a true artist with well-orchestrated songs that speaks not just to women but to unsuspecting guys. I loved every minute of this album, and the bonus disc with the remixes aren't bad either. Basically, this is just a really good album."
