A great album. The production is excellent and her choice of material is very strong. If you like something challenging and different you'll like this.

Mary Margaret O'Hara is one of the greatest singer songwriters of all-time. Her masterpiece, Miss America (1988), took four years to materialize but it was worth the wait. O'Hara's quirky voice is an instrument in itself, a super-human fusion of avantgarde techniques (such as those pioneered by Meredith Monk) and gospel/soul styling. Coupled with her sophisticated blues and jazz arrangements, the atmosphere of 'Miss America' is memorably intense.
