I like this CD. Sue Windover is no Maire Brennan or Joanne Hogg, and claims of a Celtic feel need more than the Uillean pipes to stand on. But I detect an echo of Kirsty MacColl in this Canadian singer's vocals, and I enjoyed the country and folk flavour to the songs. The percussion sounds are fantastic, the musical arrangements are spot on and the harmonic layering of the vocals works very well. Sue's voice is not ethereal, but has a great folky timbre. The songs are mostly love songs, celebrating coming through rather than opting out. I particularly like the idea behind "Table For Two", where a woman encounters a loving God in a café. If this taste is anything to go by, Sue could prove to be a great singer/songwriter in the tradition of Canadian talents like Carolyn Arends.
