The more I listen to this album the more I love it. What seemed at first like a gentle road into a woman's story quickly became musical poetry that matched more things in my life than I cared to admit. The songs are mostly gentle, often introspective and the sound is superb. The first song, Jigs & Reels & Ferris Wheels is a joyful sweet story of love, loss and traveling.... Mother daughter relationships are often trying at best, and in Mama, Boyd explores a more abusive relationship with her mother. The center piece may be Mary Katherine which, I am guessing, is about a victim of the Magdalene laundries.
I enjoy very much an album full of well written songs, songs that offer insight to someone else's life and reflect subtly on mine. But when it is combined with pure sublime sound, great melodies and wonderful musicianship, it turns into a real gem. I absolutely love listening to this cd. In fact, I think I am going to put it on right now! If you like the folky/Americana/singer songwriter genre, this album is a must.
