|Emmy's self-proclaimed "Weird album"!|
Ms. Harris herself refers to this as her weird album and believe me, you couldn'ta seen this coming after "Cowgirls Prayer", which was solid country-folk counrty, but after the initial shock wears off, which takes no time at all, the musical nuances of this album serve to transcend the listener to a whole other plain and yet remains true Emmylou music.

Emmylou's music is like your old sweatshirt or old jeans that you never want to throw away. Her songs are stories that paint pictures.

just when you think you can guess an artists musical trajectory, along comes someone lke emmylou. I was a big fan of her seventies work,but,eventually move on to other things in the eighties.

||One Of The Most Amazing Albums Ever!|
I am not a fan of country music but this album is filled with amazing textures and vibes that encompass the entire spectrum of music.
By Spike (Fresno, CA, USA)
||Best Album of 1995|
With the guiding hand of Daniel Lanios, Emmylou stepped out of her ususal genre and into decidedly non-mainstream pop. This haunting album of covers gets under your skin and stays there.
