    An excellent CD add to your rock collection!

    I hear her sing on television when see sung LA Story on David Letterman and I haven't been able to find her CD. I recently saw her new one and I love it. I can't stop playing it.

    It is infuritating sometimes

    How does music like this get shuffled to the side while we are forced to sit around and listen to a bunch of people who have never heard of her debate who the best women in rock is: Avril Lavinge or Pink? In a world of the clean and the pretty, Hart offers us something a little deeper and realer called truth. She pours herself into the vocals of each song with a passion for finding exactly the right emotion with no thought to whether or not the resulting track is radio friendly. Lyrically, she shows herself willing to go for the shocking if it is honest, but not relying on it to draw attention to the story. It is refreshing to see this in an artist. The music pulls from the edges of gospel and even pulls in a steel guitar. However, unlike many of her contemporaries, Hart uses this merely to add emotion, and not to make herself "country enough" to attempt a sad country crossover to make up for the lack of Top 40 airplay. And, she layers her sound very well, lush with strings and Hamond Organs and congas and horns and just plain old fashioned gospel organs. And yet, the focus remains on her vocals, Hart being one of very few women with vocals aggressive enought to blend with this backdrop and not get lost in it. So, while this isn't necessarily a fun album to listen to, it is an amazing album to listen to. When giving an interview about "Not Pretty Enough" Kasey Chambers summed up her inability to get airplay with "We know we are too outspoken...but sometimes that edge is what makes music good." That line covers Hart as well. Out spoken and not-quite a good role model for teenaged girls (unless they want to grow into phenomenal rock women), Hart serves up a heavy dose of the best of what rock and roll can be.
