    Next to "Hips & Makers," her best solo LP.

    The extremely beautiful and ever so slightly disturbing soundtrack to my my late teens.

    Kristin Hersh is a brilliant singer/songwriter! I can't think of anyone else that moves me the way she does! She is one of a kind! Sunny Border Blue is a great album! Everyone should own a copy!

  1. These are skewed, disturbing, beautiful songs...
  2. It contains some of the most affecting work she's ever created, exploring the power of songs stripped to their essence, and the juxtaposition of delicate melodies with the explosive emotions conveyed by her lyrics.
  3. Diminutive, but mom-tough, Hersh casually cusses her way through a baker's dozen songs that are as personal as ever, and far less cryptic than in the past. Her voice remains creaky and pregnant with emotion, matched against her signature bright-toned Collings guitars.
