    I must agree with Adam A. I usually loathe country, alt- or otherwise. I don't even like Neko Case, except for her New Pornos work. Nevertheless, this CD has not left my changer and/or iPod playlist for a month. I saw her at the Metro in Chicago last Saturday, and she is even better live.

    I've never rated before, but I just have to say how great this album is. Hooks in every bar like it's the bad part of town, an unfinished voice that tells you this is a real person, and hit after hit after hit. I just can't stop listening to it. I may have to start calling myself a fan of alt-country. Some of the songs are more touchy-feely than I like, but nearly every one I've never rated before, but I just have to say how great this album is.

    I honestly can't get over how fantastically vulnerable her voice is; for me, that's the highlight–hearing her beautiful voice sing her gorgeous melodies! Buy this album today!

  1. Asking for Flowers leaves no doubt that Kathleen Edwards has arrived and made an album that's funny, startling, poignant, and (once again) worthy of repeated play.
  2. Her third album continues her clear-minded, open-hearted lyricism, though with a ripeness that comes from years on the road and years more to reflect.
  3. Asking for Flowers is filled with literate and provocative lyricism, vivid characters and cinematically engaging scenarios.
