In the grand scheme of things, debut albums are horrible conundrums for most artists. They want to assert themselves, sound like themselves, but so many - far better, far worse, and far more far more forgettable - have come and gone before them. So what's a young singer/songwriter to do?

Well in this case, she kicks things off with the extremely catchy and radio-ready, though too-Lucinda sounding 'Change My Mind', then, with the very next song, the jaunty 'City Lights', RoseAnn Fino delivers RoseAnn Fino: a brash, full-throated old-schooler sporting a thoroughly refreshing convergence of roots rock & badass, New York street smarts. "I used to lay inside the imprint your body made" she sings in the first song, only to all-too-convincingly admit in the second "I am trying so hard to stay true." Her guitar, alongside guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt) and producer/keyboardist Professor Louie (Rick Danko,Graham Parker) rock `n rollick this standout track. Fino's mandolin and Louie's sprightly accordion color the shuffling, Band-like 'You And I" - a city saga of lovers "always looking for a fight" - but when the couple starts screaming, the vocals go all girl groupy la-la-la. Go figure.

Fortunately for us all, Fino's got a guerilla's grasp on who she is, so little gaffs like that (and the out of place reggae sounding 'Murder Song' or letting the band drown her out on the Little Feat-ish bonus jam 'Sink Your World') don't slow her down. With her ukulele in tow on the beguiling 'Seventies Trousers', she follows a guitar player dressed in the title attire home from a bar talking about "Shelley and Keats / and all the books I'll pretend I read." From the punk-moshed, country tangle of 'Hallways' we arrive at Roseann Fino's emotional core: 'Boxed Wine'.
