    Refreshing, quality songwriting

    I strongly disagree with the ''All Music Guide'' review here. Cindy Lee Berryhill shows songwriting integrity and depth throughout this CD. Cindy's unique style can take some getting used to, but the musical rewards are a pleasure to discover. This is a CD well worth taking a chance on.
