The lyrics are far stronger than Whiskey Tango Ghosts (I always felt they were a bit too basic) and a lot of the songs are absolutely gorgeous! Tanya sounds really comfortable, adding a touch of spontaneity in all the songs (she's also even better live). New England was stuck in my head for hours on first listen but songs like Kundalini Slide, Days of Grace and River Girls are really dazzling too. One or two songs don't work as well as others but that's nothing major. It expands on the country-esque sound of WTG (it's more americana this time round) with additional violins into the mix and hints of the dreamy pop of her songs in the 90s throughout the songs. River Girls and Days of Grace are the album's finest, loveliest moments. All in all, very impressive.

The phrase 'Live Album' can sometimes conjure the smell of creative juices drying up and contractual obligations being met. Fortunately this album is an intimate insight into the sound of creative juices being melded by sound alchemists in a Vermount hotel that's been shut down for winter. It's intricate, beguiling and as delicious as anything you would come to expect from Tanya Donelly. It's definitely more upbeat than WTG and tinged with a more Americana sound, slide guitars and violins wafting over most tracks. For me tracks like New England, This Hungry Life and Littlewing stand out to stand for their haunting lyrics and sublime melodies. All in all, this album leaves you aching to have been there, to witness a great musician creating a work of wonder.

" I had no idea she was still releasing records ! " gasped a reviewer at an internet music page . He is not the only one . Even sites like popmatters and pitchformedia , known for their indie sensitivities , have failed to notice .It might have to do with the fact that Donelly herself has stopped touring and promoting her work some years ago and chose to focuse on her family . There is a rather neglected site representing her at the web were fans fill the message board with wishes for mother's day , her children's birthdays and even talking about the possibility of Belly getting back together .Most entries overall point out the lack of things to actually discuss. Ofcourse this is a peculiar release itself , a live album yet full of new songs , all recorded at a gig at an abandoned hotel in front of a small audience of devoted followers .

Once upon a time Tanya Donelly might have been hyped as the new princess of psychedelic pop with her band's debut album , Belly's " Star " yet it's been a long fifteen years since then and like everyone , the lady has changed . Her music tastes certaintly have . Donelly herself has become an excellent live perfomer and her band supports her solidly but people who have jumped on board because of her precious tracks with the Throwing Muses , the Belly albums or even the exceptional but little heard solo recordings " Lovesongs For Underdogs " and "Beautysleep " are in for a minor dissapointment . That's not to say that this is a poor piece of work because it isn't ( talent doesn't come and go in a day , you know ) . It's just that ...it seems to adress to a different audience .
