Liz has steadily built up a growing following for her part-country, part-Celtic, part-pop fusion and her previous album on Plankton, 'Path Of Dreams', has shown her to be a major talent. On the opener here, a tendril of smoky, sensuous, sultry sound assaults the ears as "Burning With The Blues" snakes through the air and begins to weave its musical and lyrical magic on the ears. Some other tracks are equally pleasing. "Driftin' Sun" gently tugs the listener in while her cover of the Porgy & Bess standard "Summertime" also works well. Liz's self-penned lyrics explore life issues, love in "Red Red Rose", pain in "My Destiny" and joyful expectation in "Give Me The Answer". The production at times lacks a little depth and in support of Liz's voice some backing vocals would not have gone amiss. However, this is still an interesting set by the Irish songstress for the uninitiated.
