15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Lee Armstrong HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 20, 2008
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When Catie Curtis hit the scene with her marvelous self-titled CD Catie Curtis and bolstered her reputation with strong sets like A Crash Course in Roses, she was a marvelous new voice on the folk scene. With her last CD Long Night Moon, she was still in top form as she focused on becoming an adoptive parent. This CD on the Compass label is another strong set with Catie's unique sense of melody and her vocals at times breathless and vulnerable, at times swooping and ecstatic. "Sweet Life" has a crack instrumental backing with Andrea Zonn who released her own solo set Love Goes On singing supporting vocals on seven tracks. Alison Prestwood who has worked with Bonnie Raitt also contributes with a lively bass.

The set focuses on the joys of domestic life. On her web site, Catie is quoted about the sunny focus of this set, "There are lots of reasons to be unhappy or anxious at this time, and I think the album is as much about resilience as anything. In order to stay sane & keep moving forward, you have to be able to look at all the bad news around you and still see the beauty that is there alongside the trouble."

The title track echoes overcoming adversity, "I had lots of big plans for tomorrow, most of them probably won't come true, And maybe it's a bitter pill to swallow, but it led me here to this sweet life beside you.

By Ben M on November 28, 2009
Format: Audio CD
Really gorgeously sung and recorded set from Curtis. One of her best, if also one of her calmest. She sings softly and sweetly -- in her incredibly distinctive voice -- of the joys and heartbreaks of mature, domestic life. It's nostalgic, sweetly sentimental without being sugary.

Highly recommended.
