Has to be heard - over and over and over ...,
This review is from: Rules for Jokers (Audio CD)
Heard this album at a friend's when it was first released but didn't really take it in. Then borrowed it and got the opportunity to see Thea live and liked it so much I bought the CD and have listened to it almost continuously since! It's superb - folk with attitude!
She describes herself as being very serious and miserable (musically) but some of the tracks like "This Girl Is Taking Bets" and "Saviours And All" are more upbeat even if the content can be quite serious at times. "Holding Your Hand" is beautifully haunting. Her lyrics belie her years and she writes and sings with emotion.
If you like female singer/songwriters, well produced sound and a great voice then I'd recommend you give this a listen. Definitely a good driving CD.
