FINALLY! And yes it does deserve all caps. This album is so refreshing because the songs are so original and they are written so well. I agree with the previous reviewer in that she sounds kind of like Fleetwood Mac. I loved that group early on. But its not really her voice but the almost orchestral building to a crescendo of the songs that remind me of them. Only a few other bands, that I've heard, have this quality. I think of early U2 and Coldplay. I have some classical training and it is so great to hear modern music with actual quality to it. Buy this album!

Lyrically, tonally, and musically this album is one of the best I have heard in a while. It doesn't do much in terms of reinventing the genre, but Lissie breaths new life into the alt-rocker chick scene. She brings such a passionate resonance to her performance, that you can't help but feel yourself being affected.

In all honesty, this album speaks for itself. Just lay back in the sun with your headphones on and bathe in her warmth.

Listening to Lissie's major label debut is a familiar experience, in that she's not the first artist to surrender the organic qualities of her roots in the process of aiming for a larger audience. Where her debut EP, Why You Runnin', turned deeply confessional moments into arresting outbursts of emotion, her follow-up feels forcedly written, sung and played. Where the debut offered the studio as a space in which Lissie could be heard singing, the album is filled with placeless overproduction that, aside from the quality of Lissie's voice, sounds disappointingly like other pop records on the market. The edginess that made Lissie's earlier vocals so magnetic is lost here as she's forced to compete with gratuitously busy arrangements; it feels as if the producers didn't trust her voice to keep listeners' attention.

The double-tracked "Stranger" does provide a clever modern twist on Buddy Holly and Bobby Fuller, but it's only a moment's respite from the album's banal guitar solos and pop-rock arrangements. The minutes of deep artistic accomplishment belong to the songs brought forward from the EP: "Little Lovin'," "Everywhere I Go" and "Oh Mississippi." On these, Lissie's voice is riveting, the arrangements build tension rather than volume, and the instruments create atmosphere rather than distracting complexity. Lissie's moving, gospel-based homage to the mother river is perfectly set to a sparse arrangement of piano, chorus and distant tambourine, and the spine-tingling emotion shot into lyrics like "danger will follow me, now, everywhere I go" are unmatched by any of the newer performances.

This is a perfect example of how the big record labels like Sony/Columbia ruin music. Lissie's first EP release "Why you runnin" was on an obscure label and was hauntingly beautiful and filled with amazing vocals and a raw unprocessed acoustic sound. Truly something very special. So she get's noticed by Sony and they obviously feel she will sell better as a more mainstream pop artist. This is a very good pop recording and Lissie manages to make the pop offerings on this recording very good indeed, but the best songs on this recording by far are the songs that came from her original EP. The big record labels have been ruining music since the 1980's and while it has gotten better with all the indie label competition, they continue to do their formula approach to record making that mostly turns out garbage. This is a very good recording, but it could have been world class had Lissie added 5 more songs with the same style as her original EP. Go listen and judge for yourself.

I am always on the look out for new music. I listen to music nearly 8 hours a day at work, so I do get bored of things quickly.

This album kept coming up in recommendations despite the fact that I normally don't listen to "folky" music. However, from the first note I realized that this was "folk pop" with very catchy lyrics and tunes. The sound is a throw-back to a '70's sound. I thought some of the songs channelled early Fleetwood Mac. (Think more of the Rumours era). I was listening while tapping my foot and bobbing my head along with the music, which rarely happens! (At least not in public :)

Anyway, I was glad I gave this a try. Stand out tracks for me are "When I'm Alone", "In Sleep", "Everywhere I Go", "Cuckoo", and "Worried About". However, there is a lot to like here. Most of the songs get stuck in my head!

If you are looking for pleasant, feel good music, then give Lissie a listen!!

Lissie is an amazingly talented singer and songwriter, who throws herself heart and soul into her music. She's easily the best female singer songwriter to have emerged in recent years.

She has a voice that is by turns mellow, rockin', angry, or grieving. At her best moments - and there are many - she can reach deep into the emotions in a song and grab something painful and raw within.

Her songs are original and memorable - not least 'Oh Mississippi' which is iconic in its depth and intensity, and 'Everywhere I Go' which is achingly beautiful.

The album is excellent, and her live performances are even better. You can see some of them on YouTube, including fantastic covers of Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance' and Kid Cudi's 'Pursuit of Happiness', both of which she makes uniquely her own and equals, if not surpasses, the artistry of their originals.
