i bought this album back when "i wish i was a punk rocker" was first released, after only hearing the song once. its not very often i go and buy an album based on hearing one song but the chance really really paid off this time.
i absolutely LOVE this album; Sandi Thom's voice, songwriting and style are unmatched in anything i've heard previous or since, she stands out from the crowd. her music appeals to all ages (i'm 21, i lent the cd to my dad n he liked so much that i got it for him for his birthday). and its very geuine, i've heard her recorded-live tracks from her basement and she really is as good as on the album. i'd love to see her live. the back story to this album just makes it more endearing, and you know that she was writing the songs for her not because it was what sells.
if you like KT Tunstall, Corinne Bailey Rae or Katie Melua then you'll like Sandi Thom.
