A review of this — 7 years ago
I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this album. After reading the great live reviews Ms Lewis & Co. had received, as well as descriptions of the sounds as melancholy C&W meets bummed out gospel, I thought this would be right up my street.
Sadly, the songwriting is not strong enough. Although “Happy” is awesome and “Born Secular” and “Melt Your Heart” hit the spot too, I just haven’t felt compelled to play the album much.
I wanted to like it, I really did, but something just aint right. I have a feeling though that there is a killer album in Ms Lewis, and I look forward to being blown away by it, when it arrives on the earth.
