If you're a sucker for harmonies there are plenty of good ones on offer here - both 'Your Song' and 'Talk Of The Town' are full of them and get the album off to a relaxing start. On the latter there's even a hint of accordion which is nice to hear - an instrument that certainly doesn't get enough airtime on mainstream radio!
'Is This It?' and 'Don't Break My Heart' are a trifle dull but 'Betty' is a great song, reminiscent of Nick Drake and definitely one for a cosy night in when it's cold and wintry outside. However, 'Goldfish' would have made a better ending for the record than the slightly forgettable 'Fireworks', which leaves you feeling a bit despondent and disappointed.
Ms Walsh is only in her early twenties and still developing her style; she undoubtedly has more to offer. Put it this way, if you wandered into your local pub to listen to some live music on a rainy Sunday night and she came on, you'd be glad you'd heaved yourself off the sofa and gone out, but you wouldn't necessarily want to stay until the end. --Lizzie Ennever
