    When you sing, stars fill up my eyes...

    I initially purchased this album on itunes for myself 3 years ago and just purchased the CD for a friend.
    Veirs is definitely more than just your average singer/song writer. Her songs are so engaging throughout the entire album. She envokes unusual natural imagery to personify the human experience. Not only are her lyrics are poetic, but the music itself is equally imaginative. Her melodies are quirky and enchanting. The ethereal quality of "Galaxies" first drew me to this album, but I find a new favorite song each time I listen. This album is less "folky" than her other album, "Troubled by the Fire," and she plays with different genres from pop to punk. If you like lyric-driven music without having to sacrifice the quality of the supporting melody, you'll definitely enjoy this album.

    Hypnotic.

    This is a wonderful album, though, admittedly, it's not for everyone. The lyrics are enigmatic, eccentric, and altogether quirky. But unlike some who would fall into this category (think Tori Amos' Boys for Pele), Veirs does veer on the side of pretentiousness (yes, pun intended). Furthermore, the overall music is fantastic. Virtually every song is a delight. Veirs moves comfortably from groovy jams ("Fire Snakes") to outright rockers ("Rialto") to folksy guitar driven tunes ("Spelunking"). The first three tracks alone are worth the price of a full album. Veirs' little girl voice, her cohorts' instrumentation, Tucker Martines' crystalline production, and, above all, the catchy melodies will simply overwhelm you.
