5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific, 28 May 2013
This review is from: Massachusetts (Audio CD)
I tracked down Lori McKenna after hearing a song I liked a lot on the TV series Case Histories, googling the lyrics and trying this album. After hearing the first track, Salt, I was wondering where this woman had been all my life. It's an absolutely brilliant break-up song with fabulously original and furious lyrics, a singable tune, a lovely singing performance and a very, very good band. What more could you ask for?

The rest of the album is very good, too. It's not all of the standard of Salt, but much of it is, and songs like Smaller and Smaller, How Romantic Is That and several others are real quality stuff. Lori McKenna is a very fine songwriter with a very good voice and the ability to perform a song fantastically well and, as others have said, it is a surprise to me that she isn't far better known.

I'm delighted that I have discovered this album, and warmly recommend it to anyone who likes a good, intelligent Americana/Country song which is very well played and sung. It's terrific.
