Excellent debut album. It sets the stage for her songwriting ability. Very good album and a gem of an artist.

From Graeme2
For me this is by far her best album. Diminshing returns with each one she does to the point I havnt got the last. This is when she sounded least contrived and wasn't sounding like people expect eg. Joni mitchell. Music press will tell you each one she does is better that the last.
