This girl is no pansy. From the first guitar riff, coming in within the first few seconds of the first song, you know that Scofield isn't your average singer-songwriter. Her voice echos this statement as well.
In a way, this CD haunts you. Violins are used in the backround to compliment the lyrics, which is evident in track two, "Vanilla Dreams." Lyrics include, "Took the road to California/Found sandy beds and salty air/Waiting 'round for nothing/Just a makin' love on the beach/We were everywhere." Strings set the mood perfectly for Scofield's love stories.
Like I stated before, Scofield is no pansy. She writes a killer love song, be it happy or sad, and does it all with a charging strength.
This rock/pop album would captivate many listeners. However, if you have a "screw that" attitude (especially about love), this CD is a must have.
