The land that this album represents is very down to earth. Lisa has the lyrics of a realist, and one unafraid of openness: "Lord change me deeply", "You know my heart and love me anyway." You get the impression she worked hard and the sound is varied: acoustic guitar plucking, synth-like echos, a sparky wah-wah guitar solo and some, some ethnic percussion jangle. Sadly, post-production makes this set of songs require a new category: Could-be-easier-listening. You regularly feel like you're driving through a dry and thirsty land with Lisa -foreground vocals becoming quite monotonous: the mixing of voice and instrument actually fails to mix them, leaving Lisa standing out like a skyscraper in The Sahara. It's not that she can't sing, it's just a mixing levels thing. If she turns herself down on the next album I may buy it.
