This tender and melodious album from this cracking band is getting some deserved attention thanks to its lead singer, "Downton Abbey" star Elizabeth McGovern.

McGovern has a most pleasant voice, strikingly similar to her speaking voice, sounding like a more mellow Debbie Harry. By turns sultry and innocent, her voice fits the music like a glove. On-screen daughter Michelle Dockery provides backing vocals.

The simple and smooth arrangements have folky and country inflections, with occasional forays into lightly smooth jazz. It's a very relaxing and pleasant accompaniment to the day. Guitar, piano and a little tin whistle and steel guitar merge to a consistent sound. The musicianship on display here is superb, and highly accomplished.

For the most part the lyrics don't seek to make bold statements, it's the simple joys of life and domestic matters which are at the fore. None more so than on "The Cow Song": being happy with a loved one, watching a field of cows... "it's nice to watch the way they chew/I'm glad you brought me here with you". These simple observations and the innocent pleasure and wholesome charm don't mire the songs in humdrum detail however - it's smooth and pleasant through and through. There's variety here though and both sides of the coin are explored.

This is a mature and accomplished album. For the most part a mellow and relaxing listen, something to chill out to and smile. The overall feel is warm and optimistic, an ode to simple pleasures and the good life. Very enjoyable and enormously likeable.

This is a fantastic album: pure perfection! I constantly have it playing when I'm completing University work as it has the right blend of up-tempo and more sedate music. A must buy!

My whole family fell in love with The Cow Song, and I love Downton so had to give this a chance! So glad I did! Its my No 1 album at the moment, with me in the car, the bath, and even making the cleaning a worth while chore as I sing along to it! Everytime I listen to the album I have a new favourite but especially love The Cow Song, Nothing New, Use it Up and LA Days.
If your looking for an album to take you away from it all with haunting melodies and amazing vocals then get it!

I just love this album. I think it's better than the first album they made (it's a bit more "fun"). If you need something new and slightly different, go buy it!

I've seen Elizabeth Mcgoven singing with the band on tv and thought she and the songs were very good and unusual. I must say though the cd is very disappointing as the sounds are weak and sound like a cd's been made on the cheap. I wouldn't buy another by this band as much as I do actually like the songs on it and know the band can sound much better than the cd.

If you like sophisticated beautifully sung and played music with intelligent lyrics this will be for you. Music for adults who have lived a bit maybe. You may know Elizabeth McGovern as an actor but her singing and songwriting are just wonderful and her alternative career as a musician is equally accomplished. I absolutely love this album

I saw Elizabeth McGovern being interviewed and singing a track from this cd on tv. The style of Sadie and the Hotheads is very much a cross between folk and country.

Very good and I look forward to hearing more from them.
