The upside is that, even during her album's most middle-of-the-road moments, Barnett's voice remains strong, smooth, and confident. And a few of the songs shine with real promise -- Barnett's delicate handling of Jim Lauderdale's "Planet of Love," for example, and the traditional "Wayfaring Stranger," which closes the album on a comfortable, unhurried note.

    Not usually a country fan...

    I've actually had this album for a few years. No one knows about this singer, which is a shame. Though I don't normally like country music, this is QUALITY. and yes, reaaalllll country. But I've enjoyed it so much and wanted to let people know.
