This is a beautiful album. Laura's delivery is fragile, measured and emotionally devastating. The songs are filled with longing and regret, great sympathy and heart-wrenching honesty. The backing is sometimes jaunty, with a country twang, at other times it is hushed as for a lullabye. Fans of The Arlenes, Lucinda Williams and Damien Jurado will love it. I strongly reccommend it.

Yet another in the long list of artists I may never have heard of if it wasn't for Sir John of Peel, this is one of the most beautiful albums I too have heard. My personal favourite is Laura's cover of Amy Allison's "The Whiskey Makes You Sweeter". Having had the privilege of seeing Laura in concert makes this song, album & memories of Peelie even sweeter (pardon the pun).
Flawless musicianship, singing & songwriting throughout, this album is a pure gem. One of those albums that I wish I could give more than 5 stars to. Be also re-assured (as if it were needed) that her other material is also of the same high quality (When The Roses Bloom Again; The Hello Recordings).
So with glass of red wine raised, I say "Cheers John!" :o)

John Peel was famed for unleashing ground-breaking acts on the music listening public that could sometimes go a little close to the bone. I´d like to think that regular listeners to his show remember that he had a little soft spot for female vocalists, especially when they sing as beautifully as this.
I was immediately struck by the frail purity of Laura Cantrell´s voice when I heard her on the show. "Not the tremblin kind," is a beautifully worded opener and it illustrates Laura´s beautifully understated singing style. "Little bit of you," carries on in the same fashion, again her voice is beautifully wistful.
My favourite track on the album has to be,"two seconds." I just love this song, the lyrics are so simple and the backing vocalist helps build the track really nicely, I feel strangely moved by the chorus.
Upbeat numbers like,"do you ever think of me," make me feel really happy, I can´t resist tapping my feet or humming along.
This is fine record. I´m not going to lie. I would never have bought this if I hadn´t heard her on Peel´s show. But then, so what? I´ll be buying all her other records too.

A great pop country album. Wonderfully tuneful, Laura's melancholy voice is perfectly suited to this sort of album. I particularaly like "Two Seconds" and "Queen of the Coast". Proof that country isn't all Cowboy hats and truck driving. Buy more copies Amazon, so we don't have to wait over-long for such fantasic albums!!!

Although Laura Cantrell comes from Nashville, she is as far removed musically from rhinestone cowboys and saccharin strings as she is geographically, based as she is in Brooklyn NY. This is no-frills Americana country music, following in the wake of the Byrds and Emmylou, and is a gem of a record.
Laura modestly includes only four of her own songs on the album, though two of them are the highlights of the album for me, Churches Off The Interstate and Queen Of The Coast (no. 42 in the John Peel 2000 Festive 50), the latter said to be about Bonnie Owens, the yodelling country star who married Merle Haggard and took to the sidelines as his career took off. This album is about the songs, and many were discovered by Laura through her WMFU show Radio Thrift Shop, which she has broadcast from Jersey City NJ since 1993, and from friends and neighbours who are performers. The record has provided a platform for relatively unknown singers and writers, much as Emmylou Harris records have.
Not The Tremblin' Kind was written by George Usher, who had been in the Ministers Of Sound and in an earlier Minneapolis band called Beat Rodeo in the mid-eighties. Another member of Beat Rodeo was Dan Prater, who wrote Do You Ever Think Of Me, and was to play on Laura's next album. Joe Flood, who wrote Pile Of Woe, was in Mumbo Gumbo, while Two Seconds was a cover of Michigan band the Volebeats, and written by their singer Bob McCreedy. Laura's version made no. 27 in the Festive 50 in 2000. The Whiskey Makes You Sweeter comes from a well-regarded album by Amy Allison, daughter of Mose Allison, and Somewhere, Some Night is the work of Carl Montgomery, brother of Melba and Earl "Peanut" Montgomery, and co-writer of Six Days On The Road - a song I'd like to hear Laura Cantrell tackle.

Like most people I heard this first via the late and great John peel I remember the times when you would decide that his latest offering would have you shaking your head and reaching for the off button and then he would play something that would leave you rooted to the spot this was one of those moments, what I know about country music wouldn't cover a postage stamp what I do know is Laura Cantrells work is never far from my cd player and never tires and I've been lucky to see people's faces light up when they have heard her for the first time. The delivery and voice is never forced or strained but is allowed to gently absorb into your cerebrum where it will stay the instruments are plaintive and wistful and will stir your soul there are other albums that I see as musically more accomplished and can rationalise as why but this and her other albums seem to reach out to parts of my soul that others just don't I voted for two seconds and queen of the coast in the festive fifty and apart from mankind by misty in roots and dress by PJ Harvey these remain my only contributions these songs will remain with you if you let them and your world will be a better place for it
