Customer Review

on April 17, 2012
There are albums that one reaches for at 3 AM, that do not just connect in a casual way but feel like the comfort of a close friend. This album is a sterling example of such a special recording. The music dips into styles of folk, pop (in the classic songwriting sense), country and a sort of folk-soul- all beautifully arranged and wrapped around the Jenifer's ethereal yet earthy voice. Ethereal yet earthy could also describe the lyrics, never overplaying a scene but sparsely conjuring what is conveyed to a result where a soft voice singing truthfully resonates all the more intensely because of the peace in it. The peace conveyed here is one that isn't simple- there is a deep melancholy, a sense of loss, grief, and transcendence. The lyrics are laced with imagery that is both crushing in it's sadness and simultaneously healing in it's beauty- the references to nature, both physical and emotional, call to mind both what tethers and releases us. Feeling the darkness and setting out toward a brighter place.

It's the kind of album one clicks into and while listening cannot imagine any more beautiful music. Being someone whose life has revolved around music it's stunning and lovely to hear an album that feels as important and heart stirring as when I first heard my long time favorites. In a world of transient music-of-the-moment, trust me: this is someone to hold onto, a keeper that will continue to give to the listener upon every listen.
