Every since Plumb emerged in 1997 Cross Rhythms has been playing them (they were a band when they started) on the radio and swooning over the haunting vocals of Tiffany Arbuckle and her extraordinary ability to write songs that hang around in your head from play one. Now, after a lengthy sabbatical, Plumb re-emerges as just Tiffany herself but we’re delighted to report the lady has lost none of her catch-in-the-throat poignancy, while the haunting, mid tempo “Sink-‘n’-Swim” with the lady purring over loud guitars and cellos; the acoustic rock confession of a loose tongue “Without You”, “Boys Don’t Cry” which starts all whisperingly acoustic and explodes in a wall of guitars, all bare repeated listening. Whether there’s a classic song of the calibre of “Damaged” on here we’ll have to wait and see. What I can say though is that one of Nashville’s most gifted singer/songwriters has been away from the CD racks too long. So it’s great to see her back.
