Format:Audio CD
Dayna Kurtz explores a whole lot of American music styles, rock'n'roll, americana, rockabilly, folk, blues, jazzy, roots music, in her own way.
Various instrumentations and even an 'a capella' sung track. It swings, it stings, enchants.

As a sort of tribute to american music making, it is an album that definitely grows on you.

It contains remarkable covers (Elliott Smith, Sonny Burgess, ...) in original interpretations, as well as new work by herself. And it does sound all great and especially timeless, as if she brought some standard non-obvious examples from each genre together, as a coherent portfolio. It's an ecclectic talent.

"Are You Dancing With Her Tonight?" reminds me a lot of Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill" sound (speaking of a true classic!), yet it's entirely different. Classy 50's styled and daring, a haunting ballad.

Dayna Kurtz is one intense performer and certainly an extraordinary singer!

This high level of quality in versatile singer-songwriters is hard to find. Some call her a female Tom Waits - like each comparison this one could be argued, but it sure is a well-deserved compliment for Dayna Kurtz as a gifted songwriter.

The album ends with a party : `Election Day', an energetic dixieland tune, and another tribute: "good guys sometimes win".

Perhaps not her best album, but every Kurtz album is worth five stars!

Some songs are great,but overall not as good as I expected. Very interesting voice, though. I would definitely try a new album.
