Ms. Orton's sweet British accent mumbles and soars here, like she's singing to herself alone, the audience in its own space somewhere else. Guest work on this cd include Ben Harper on electric guitar for "Stolen Car" and "Love Like Laughter", Terry Callier doing background vocals for "Pass in Time" and Dr. John on piano for "Sweetest Decline". If you like Cat Power, Kristin Hersh, Radiohead or maybe Cowboy Junkies, or if you have good sense, spend your time wisely -listen to this woman.
