On first listen I was immediately impressed by the intricate yet simple backing and Hayley's delicate close-miked vocals that make it sound almost as if she is there in the room with you. It is particularly impressive when played through a high quality sound system or good headphones.
My favourites? Well all of them really but Pretty Little Horses, Hushabye Mountain and When At Night (the evening prayer from the opera Hansel and Gretel) stand out for me. The final track Stay Awake is guaranteed to make you do the opposite if played late in the evening, it's possibly the most relaxing ending to an album that I've ever heard.
If you like Hayley or just like relaxing music, don't miss out on this album!
