We gave it a B+

As the writer of hits for Patty Loveless, George Strait, and others, Gretchen Peters would seem as country as corn. Yet on this impressive debut she has more in common with the romantic sensibilities of Rickie Lee Jones than Loretta Lynn. The lush production of The Secret of Life sometimes creeps over the top, but Peters’ songs about emotional thirsts that never get quenched have a quiet power all their own. B+
