We gave it a B-

Davies has recorded for just about every major label, and here on her first Capitol release she continues her stylish mix of country, blues, pop, and bluegrass, spiked with Jerry Douglas’ soulful Dobro guitar. As usual, Da-vies sings of the strength and vulnerability of the independent woman, and on such songs as ”A Love That Could Last,” which questions her generation’s ability to form enduring relationships, she also launches a tuneful search for spiritual centeredness. With her integrity and intelligence as both a writer and producer, Davies has always been among the best of the New Country artists, her soaring, clear soprano cutting a swath through legions of female also- rans. This particular album, though, suffers from too many fillers and too few memorable moments.
