A surprisingly effective excursion into pop for Baez, with a set of melodic songs gracefully interpreted. The lilting reggae of No Woman No Cry works well - she tweaked the lyrics (Trenchtown becomes Boystown) for a more universal application. Song At The End Of The Movie and Before The Deluge are magnificent sad songs without being despairing, whilst Honest Lullaby is autobiographical and reminiscent of the earlier Gulf Winds. An accomplished album then, with strong material and sophisticated delivery.
