Homeward Looking Angel

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Pam Tillis had an enviable challenge with Homeward Looking Angel -- topping the critically acclaimed and commercially viable Put Yourself in My Place, an album that spawned four Top Ten singles including "Don't Tell Me What to Do." Tillis' pure, full-bodied country voice can be both a boon and a burden. Some tracks on Angel seem cliché.
