You know that cliché about a voice so beautiful that you wouldn't mind it singing the phone book? I'm ashamed to say that I've got to dust that one off for Abigail Riccards. The song itself has been done by so many singers that I was surprised to find myself looking up from my writing pad as the first verse passed. Guitarist Lund floats a gorgeous chord melody underneath the vocals...and oh, the vocals! Riccards has a lovely, finely textured voice and the delicate trills added at each line's end made me wish I'd known this version forever.

    I totally agree. This whole album is one of the best I've heard in years. I'm glad to see you wrote something about it! Her voice is smooth and clear, and it possesses a sincerity that is rarely scene, especially in younger singers. Kudos.
