Overview

Carrie Newcomer's songwriting has gotten a little more mature, and her sound has expanded a bit ("Playing With Matches," for example, is a big, earnest folk-pop number with strings). But at heart, Newcomer is still the quintessential American folk singer -- she's inherited the un-daring but endearing, socially conscious style of Peter, Paul & Mary and their ilk. The bigger sound occasionally gets in the way of the intimacy which is central to Newcomer's charm, but it also makes things a little more interesting.

No matter how many new cds I get, I always return to this one. Carrie's mix of vocals and songwriting are amazing. This cd is constantly fresh in sound and great anytime of day.
