The Liner/Sleeve Notes:
After a pretty long hiatus, I’m finally back online. And to celebrate, here is another fine record for all y’all.
This album opens with the track “I Don’t Even Time” and it seems to have a dancey pop sound to it, like bubblegum pop. Lori has a pretty good voice, and can hit those high notes pretty well. I do like Lori’s voice a lot. Kind of raspy. Next up comes “Dreamer” and it starts with a slow sort of melodic rhythm to it, it’s a pretty good opening, Lori then starts to sing, and I’m trying to place her accent. It’s definitely a ballad, and it’s a good one. The album continues with “My Sister” which has a really big build up to it. I’m liking the ballady vibe it has to it, Lori’s voice is pretty powerful. We then continue on with the song “That’s They Way Love Can Go” – which seems to start off slowly, but you can tell it’s going to have a really good chorus, you can just feel it. But it never comes… The A-Side closes with “Tugboat Annie” and hopefully it’s better than it’s predecessor, it’s still slow, nothing all that special lyrically, Lori’s vocals are good. The musicianship is good.
The B-Side opens with “Maine” which has a pretty jazzy sound to it, and the musicianship is done well, but I just don’t like this song. The album continues with “Be My Love For Just Today” and it has a country vibe to it, it’s definitely better than the last track, nothing overly stand-outish. “One More Drink” comes next, and this one seems to be the best track so far, Lori really kicks it off on the chorus on this track, like I didn’t even see that coming. It’s great. Yup, definitely my favorite track on this album. “Blue Eyes” comes next, and it goes back to the usual soft rock ballad style music, a bit too slow for me. The album closes with the upbeat “That’s What You Say” which has that upbeat pop sound, with a bit of a funk sound to it. Or is it R&B? I’m not quite sure. It’s alright, nothing overly special. All in all, it’s an okay album.
