Having seen Sarah Jarosz on the Transatlantic Sessions TV Series I realised what a fantastic talent she is. I then listened to her previous two albums and two be honest was a bit disappointed. Jarosz is brillian live, but I feel her previous two albums were a bit contrived and didn't showcase her brilliant talent. However, with this new album she has definitely relaxed much more into recording her own songs, and the addition of the other instrumentalists has transformed her recording style, and sounds "live". I could go through each song and say how great they are, but I suggest you listen to the samples and decide for yourself! I find this album incredibly easy to listen to, and must say that unlike some other folk albums, the quality of the tracks stays top-notch, right until the last track. A definite star in the rising - buy it!

This is a really good album. I liked it on first hearing, then found myself playing it regularly for a few weeks and it has really grown on me from there. These are songs with real musical merit and lyrical substance and they will endure in a way that many songs don't, I think.

I find it a little hard to categorize the music (which is probably a good thing).
There is a fine variety of material from the punchy and slightly spiky, like the opener Over The Edge, to the truly beautiful like the genuinely affecting love song Gone Too Soon. Sarah Jarosz is a fine musician and a very good singer, so the songs are excellently performed. She has a very good band and an excellent sense of how to arrange her songs, and the production is very well-judged and varied so the album never sounds samey and every track sounds fresh.

I would warmly recommend this album to anyone who likes a good song, well arranged and performed. For me it stands out from much of the mass of quite good Americana-ish music around at the moment. I think Sarah Janosz is a class act and I'll definitely be looking out for her work in the future.

{Update: After seeing her live at Bush Hall in 2014 I can confirm that she is very, very good indeed. Fine songs and brilliant musicianship - I really hope Sarah Jarosz meets with the success she deserves.)

Came upon this by accident. Simply wonderful, sublime songs and music. Now bought all three albums and booked to see here in Cardiff in July. Can't wait.

A very enjoyable album - Jarosz seems to have a knack for good melodies and unusual themes/lyrics.
