    Her first album was better. She needs to mix up her genres a bit. Too much of the blues on this album. Still good though.

    I love this CD. I find myself just singing it to myself all through the day. It can make me laugh and it can bring tears to my eyes. To me, that the hallmark of a great recording.

  1. The white-girl blues thing very rarely does anybody any good.
  2. Barricades and Brickwalls paints a broad spectrum of alt.country/ bluegrass/honkytonk music, and that variety is its greatest strength.

    It's the breath-taking songwriting that clinches the deal here.
