Relatively hot on the heels of debut album 'Little Red Boots' just over a year ago, Ortega's follow-up 'Cigarettes and Truckstops' is more of the successful same, her Partonesque vocal warbling its homage namecheck in the opening title track, a gentle country love ballad where she puns in the narrative's recollecting, 'I'd hear Dolly singing, you and I were islands in the stream'.

The following track 'The Day You Die' is an upbeat country standard where the lyric 'You said you'd love me till the cows come home, well I'm hoping that they all go blind' reflects the whimsy of this and other delights on the album, the double bass and guitar outro an additional musical witticism. Fourth 'Don't Wanna Hear It' rocks us to another place in Ortega's rich vocal geography, guitars romping along for the ride. This terrain is revisited in sixth 'Murder of Crows', the acoustic slide guitar providing a classy blues support to Ortega's echoed vocal swagger - she really can soar in such sassy singing.

The Dolly Parton resonance is most pronounced on seventh 'Heaven Has No Vacancy', but this is no mere repetition and Ortega's voice is beautiful here, capturing a similar but distinctive clarity in pitch and tone. You can't escape comparisons and reflections in such a long musical lineage, and this is all compliment in its mentioning. Indeed, next song 'High' is a good example of Ortega's individual breadth, this a folkish ballad and her singing having a whispered core before it rises to those crystal clear peaks in the chorus.

This is a classy vocal performance, a second strong album building on the excellence of her first. In the musical sense, those little red boots are getting much bigger.

The Little Red Boots get in on the act again. I must say this CD is excellent, probably as good as Tin Star. If you like Lindy you will love this CD.

Recently new to "country" music (I'm normally into rock music) - I started by hearing Ashley Monroe on Radio 2 (like a rose) then i listened to a bit more of her music - which is fantastic, then my music app of choice ( I won't name it here as its not Amazon!) recommended I listen to Kacey Musgraves - again a fantastic record. Then I saw an article on line where a few people were mentioning Lindi Ortega...so I listened to one album, then the next, then the next. Then I watched some of her gigs on youtube, and am now hooked. For the immediate "catchy" songs check out "Hard as this", "I'm no Elvis Presley", "Blue Bird" and "The day you die". Wonderful songs, a beautiful voice, and a great guitarist backing her too. This is the best "country" you can get - highly recommend you buy this record now !!! Also check out Ashley and Kacey too, equally fabulous !
