It takes a while to grow on you, but the new album is really remarkable. Almost as good as her first two or even better for myself once you lean to love it's bitterness. i love how lyrics express some kind of transition in her life .. from a child and sweet girl in love in Alas to a mature woman in this album. How can a 21 year old make an album that is beyond many others that have been making music for decades. she truly is a brilliant songwriter. In some years Laura will be considered one of the best singer songwriters ever to grace this planet.
