- Carolyn calls this her "grumpy" album, but it's still shot through with hope
What a freakin' great album! Who but Carolyn could write penetratingly from the shadows and loss of our society's tragic and wayward individualism, and yet leave the listener with a good hope? Carolyn is a master of her craft, she keeps getting better and we are the better for it. - Steve Bell, recording artist
