I feel the spirit of Laura Nyro, Ricki Lee Jones, Ronnie Spector, even hubby Bruce riding along on this first class collection. So many great cuts "Yesterdays Child" just gets to me with every listen, love the way she gives us that early Ricki Lee Jones style on the opening cut "23rd street lullaby"- Kind of a Lou Reed opening on "You can't go back", love the songs "ROMEO"- "ROSE"-"CITY BLUES"-"STUMBLING TO BETHLEHEM"-the elegance and beauty of "YOUNG IN THE CITY", you'll find so much quality music on this very enjoyable 2nd outing from Patti(its been 11 years since Rumble Doll??) Adult Rock/Pop music I would compare to the excellence that Bonnie Raitt has been dishing out all these years. Soulful, lush, spare at times, haunting, nostalgic harmonies as Patti looks back over the years, some regrets but with hope to the future. This one takes a bit more time to take in but its worth it. Patti is a rare, self assured vocalist with a great set of pipes that grows on you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

What a haunting, gorgeous voice Ms. Scialfa has! This record is quickly becoming a favorite. Her songwriting is lovely, there is so much nostalgia there, so many pretty harmonies/melodies that you can easily guess why she called this album a lullaby. It sounds so effortless. I hope Ms. Scialfa has much success with this record (and releases another in the future), what a wonderfully fresh set of songs she has crafted here. This is definitely recommended. Perfect for lazy nights at home.

Patti has her talented friends in tow for her second outing; the musicianship that is displayed here is unmatched. She has a fine, fine voice. One of those rare CDs that you can listen to beginning to end.

Long awaited 2nd album from scialfa is solid in musicianship but a little flight lyrically. Some of the songs hold beautiful visual vignettes of people and places she has known. Not as compelling as Rumble Doll but still worth the wait. Hopefully it won't take as long for a third album!
