A lot to live up to,
This review is from: Saltbreakers (Audio CD)
All four of LV's albums so far have been excellent and distinctive. This album may lack a little of the emotional tang of the others, but, that said, it has many superb songs, including the title track, with its fantastic vocal contribution from her band, Cast a Hook, which is top notch LV, the slightly experimental Wandering Kind with an almost jazzy feel and Nightingales which is among the most poignant songs she has ever written. It suffers only because her previous albums are so extraordinarily good, but by any standards this is an excellent album from one of the world's most gifted and under-rated singer songwriters.
