This album is dull. Deeply, deeply dull. I love Peyroux's first two albums but after listening to this one several times in a desperate attempt to find something of merit I've taken it down to the charity shop. It's hard to pin down but there is a lifeless sameness to most of the tracks. The only reason this got a second star is the first track, "I'm All Right" - which wouldn't have been out of place on Careless Love - a single thirty-something woman's statement of another failed relationship featuring the clever line break "It should be easy to leave/but I have to conceive/that wherever you are you're driving my car". Unfortunately, after the opening track it is all downhill. The cover of Tom Waits' "Looking for the Heart of Saturday Night" is almost criminal. Buy Careless Love or Dreamland instead.
