Liz's previous album 'The Dream' was recorded in Nashville and was a relatively gentle Celtic acoustic affair. For the follow up Liz collaborated with Paul McIlwaine, and unusually the album was created completely online from their respective locations, they didn't actually meet each other face to face. The 13 tracks contained within are composed of various styles, from the dance with a hint of Bhangra for the opener "Holy Holy" to the pop of "Holy Rain" and simple acoustic of the title track and "Whispers Of Love". The guitar playing on these two tracks is really exceptional and highlights Paul's expertise with an acoustic. As the album progresses more and more exposure is given to the acoustic side of Paul's production and playing. I like the fact that Liz has experimented with different styles throughout the album, however, when it's just her voice and Paul's guitar, something quite magical happens.
