    There are no boundaries here to be broken, but there's clear indication of new-found confidence that obviously serves her well.

    This is a country record with a pop heart.

    With such fraught subject matter, the only dissonance seems to be from the lushness of the mostly acoustic arrangements and the actual life contained in the lyrics.

    Smith is least persuasive on the latter [unexpectedly aggressive, blues-based power ballads] - her delicate voices sounds strident when fronting heavy electric guitars, and those scattered tracks break the spell that her more restrained songs cast easily. [No.89, p.59]
