This album is all of that and more. Jenny Owen Youngs writes a mean lyric, has a coolly deceptive voice - it lulls you in and then wham! Hits you over the head like a pop song baseball bat. Love it. "Voice on Tape" and "F**K, I Was" are just awesome. RIYL Cat Power, Mary Lou Lord, Beth Orton.

This Cd was not what I expected! I went to a show in San Fransisco with my girlfriend, and the whole way there I was telling myself to arrive with an open mind. I'm not really a big fan of female singers, but any live music is better than nothing at all. I was blown away by her live performance. I bought the Cd a few weeks later, and I was impressed, not only by her skills but by her song writing abilities. There are a lot of big winners on this CD. BUY IT!!!!!

This album grows softly and slowly in your heart. Jenny Owen Youngs has a florid Folk jazz style with her own unique mellow voice. She has noticable musical depth and talent. She is another promising graduate of SUNY Purchase(e.g. Regina Spektor) to hit the alternative folk scene.

Just as Regina is becoming well known I see Jenny also making it bigtime.

Jenny is an awesome songwriter. Few capture the euphoric highs and rock-bottom lows of love as well as she does. This is the most folky of her releases. You might want to try An Unwavering Band of Light or Transmitter Failure first if you're new to Jenny. In the end, you'll likely want them all.

Honestly, I had not heard of Jenny until I found out she would be warming up for Vienna Teng at the Palace Of Fine Arts in San Francisco a couple of days ago. I listened to a few cuts on the web and it grabbed me quickly, so I bought the CD a few weeks before the show. I listened to the CD in my bedroom at least a half-dozen times and loved every single listen. At the show, she was every bit as good as on the CD, and with a great sense of humor. If you like the female singer/songwriter genre, I highly recommend this CD, and am actually listening to it again as I am typing this. And, should you have the opportunity to see her live, I highly recommend you take it. You won' be disappointed.

Let me start by saying that I usually listen to punk or other music that is fast with a lot of energy. This is not the genre of music that I usually listen to, but I like it.

I recently lost someone close to me, and the mood of a few songs fit what I was feeling. I bought the CD, figuring I'd listen to it while I got really drunk, and then retire it to the cabinet of forgotten music.

The more that I listen to it, the more I like it. I like the honesty of the lyrics. I can appreciate feeling awkward and unsure; making mistakes and sometimes caring, sometimes not; wanting to be loved. It's all stuff that I relate to.

In Drinking Song she sings, "I don't know what's wrong with me, but I wish that it were something else". It's that kind of sentiment that I appreciate, or the lyrics in F*** Was I, "If we weren't such good friends, I think that I'd hate you. If we weren't such good friends, I'd wish you were dead."

She is a cynical poet. I like that she plays guitar. I hope that she stays honest and writes music that she believes in. It's what sets her apart from the over-produced crap that I've heard from other young female song writers.
