I have to say, I was a tiny bit disappointed with this album. I love Peggy Sue and they have a great sound, but I expected more from them. I know they have some really good songs such as ‘The Sea The Sea’ and ‘Lazarus’ but these were missed off the album. Its full of new songs, but unfortunately most of them are very similar sounding, with similar instrumentation and the same miserable sound behind all the tracks. Stand out tracks are ‘February Snow’ which was included on the Communion Compilation, and the first track ‘Long Division Blues’. ‘The Reminder’ is also a lovely track. As usual with Peggy Sue, the album has some beautiful harmonies from the stunning voices of Rosa and Katy and there sound is still quite unique, its like folk-rock-pop-soul music. I don’t think this album is bad, it just doesn’t show Peggy Sue off to their full potential. They have waited a long time to bring out an album so they have created quite a body of work, but this album isn’t the best of it. I’m hoping the album my grow on me with time.
Best Tracks: ‘February Snow’, ‘Long Division Blues’ and ‘Watchman’
