Well done, eclectic debut

"Tough to pigeonhole Lindsay Smith's style, because I think she's a unique talent. This CD is very worth listening to. If I had to compare Lindsay to another artist, I'd say her style is somewhat like Ani DiFranco, but with a bit more humor and a bit less angst. Probably not fair to label her this early in her career, though. If you're familiar with Lindsay's live show, you may find some of these tracks a trifle overproduced. I'm hoping her next CD is a little simpler, but I don't mean to detract from Fruitbat Vat at all. It's a strong debut. Great songs that range from funny to introspective, never failing to showcase Lindsay's powerful and versatile voice."
