REVIEW:

By Yours Truly
I tried to find a review on Amazon or All Music that would express how good an album this is and then I realized that was a fool’s errand for the simple reason I love this album past the music and words themselves. I was a big Wendy fan from the first time that I heard her voice on the first album and each succeeding release just furthered my love for the woman and her music. When this album came out though my admiration rose to a whole new level. Here was this beautiful girl who wrote beautiful music rocking out full tilt with a great group of musicians backing her up. I can’t help but be biased about these tunes, they mean special things to me. This album came out at a time in my life when I was suffering some rather severe growing up pains and wondering just where to go from here. Every song on this album seemed to be directed to my pain and suffering and Wendy’s voice was very soothing. To hear her singing “You’ll See” kept me going at a time in life when I wasn’t sure how to keep going. This album is ingrained in my soul and I can’t play it today without singing along with every word from “Fool To Let Him (Her) Slip Away” to “Love Is The Only Goal”. The music is excellent on this record. Every musician in the band is very talented and the song arrangements are tight and flow from one song to the next like the most natural thing in the world. The guitar playing is superb. Some of the tastiest, melodic guitar solo’s you’ll ever hear grace this album. I could go on and on but the best idea is to put on the headphones, turn off the phone, turn up the volume and give your undivided attention to these 10 tracks that make up this great piece of work.

That was a very fine heartfelt review, Yours. I can only concur wholeheartedly as I'm listening to "Strange Company" at the moment.
