"Hi First I want to clarify the amount of songs on this CD. There is over 60 minutes of music on "Cutthroat Standards & Black Pop" and 13 songs!! (I don't know why there are only 4 listed) Here's what the press has said: "this sultry songstress is redefining retro-cool." -Request"Impress your friends when Abby Travis gets big 10 months from now"-Alternative Press"a Brecht-Weill epiphany" - The Washington Post"She's one of those artists who can do anything-like other weird, uncommercial acts such as Madonna or Prince. Got vision? Get her."-HITS"Conjuring images of mink sliding from bare shoulders and a dead-dry martini in a chromium-plated coctail bar, her music is sweet as poison. The production is flawless...Remarkable in every way, and highly recommended"-Mean Street"Imagine a smoky, mid-1920s speakeasy, a shapely alto crooning ironic love songs as she drapes herself along the length of the piano. Then she kicks you in the nuts."-Philadelphia Citypaper"Travis' slinky solo turn can't be beat"-Boston Weekly Din"a torchy lounge diva..Beatle-esque Pop"-The Los Angeles Times"This is an excellent standards-like ablum for those who hate standards and sappy sentiment"-newbeats.com(I work for the label so I'd rather post these unbaised oppinions)"
Everything is indeed Wonderful about this album

"One of the best and most varied uses of instruments since the fab four plopped down on their bottoms and plucked, strummed, and crooned their way into a musical world. Most of the women I know wished they had a gun. To be honest I wouldn't mind a few of them having one. Bold and brash Abby topping 1997's Foundation album. Taking direct aim at those weasels who think they're f**king great, Abby proves yet agian that she is not a part but a complete artist. I may not agree that Sunday is the day for love, Tuesday would be my choice, but I will say that I like the sleek loungy jazzy sound of it. Track thirteen might not bring a smile to our impatiant friends who like to think everyday is merry methmas. I on the other hand got a kick out of over twenty-two minutes of acapella harmonics. Hangover Flower is the new theme song for all those lost souls who pray to Saint. Ides. Overall the album remains cosistantly fresh and moody. Thank you Abby. Thank you."

"Such a good CD by an awesome artist. This CD combines mixtures of Swing, Rock, Cabaret style music, and other genres that fit perfectly into 12 songs.

If you want to get the bad concept of pop out your head, go out and get some Black Pop for yourself, instead."
