    There's a rich sense of open space and movement that feels close to dub reggae at times, which leaves plenty of room for LaVette in the foreground.

    Since there's never any faulting LaVette's performances, the quality of her albums depends on both the material and the producers she chooses, and it's in those ways that Thankful N' Thoughtful is a slight letdown from LaVette.

    There is no denying that LaVette has a hell of a voice. On Thankful N' Thoughtful – as on her other work – it's a massive, destructive, ragged thing... [Yet] she has the voice, but not the songs. She has tried to overcome this by working with songs from other artists; the results are mixed.
