This is Heather's 6th studio album, and it's a great effort. It looks into motherhood and the bloodlines of the world. It's a very special album.
Starting with "Welcome", an american bonus track off "South", the album gives us a strong into - but this song does seem a little out of place on this album. It's a very strong first single, though. Track 2 is the phenominal "I miss my sky". And...Wow. It's one of her best written songs ever. And it's so beautifully crafted and peformed. Definatly the highlight of the album.
"Motherland", track 3, is the first song about motherhood. It's a strong song, sung beautifully with a really catchy guitar riff. I really adore this song.The title… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars She's a supernova., 21 July 2005
From all the Liz albums I have, I have always had the most love for this album. Her voice is great, raw and most importantly real - I believe anything she sings to me. She's so natural.
The best thing about this album is its flow. It works like a book, flicking through the chapters. Starting with the beautiful and very phair-like "Chopsticks", the audience is imediatly thrown into Liz's world. And just after she slips in the last lines "...'cause secretly I'm timid." The begining roar of the rocking Supernova erupts. This is a very sentimental song, without being too precious and sickly sweet. It's great. "Support system" is a jerky and classic tune with enough bite to eat of your arm… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Heather's best., 6 July 2005
This album has stood the test of time, truely. 11 years later, and this album can still turn someones head. More band-driven than her other albums, this one is -so far- her best.
Opening with lead single "Walk this world." Heather imediatly rocks. She introduces her powerful voice and her wonderful song writing ability. A strong opener and a well-recieved single. Many people know this song, just not who poor Heather is. (Though this album had sold over 700,000 copies by 1998.)
Next up is "Heal", probably my least favourite track on the album, a glittering song about regaining energy to be able to heal ourselves. "Island" the third track from the album, is a highlight. A tragic… Read more
