General comments:

Lisa Boudreau has one of those beautifully liquid voices that immediately gets my attention. It reminds me a big of Karin Bergquist's (of Over The Rhine). The band's style is rather like a slightly more country-flavoured Cowboy Junkies. (Neile)

The first track of this disc "Winter Raging" is stunningly beautiful and a wonderful use of Lisa Boudreau's gorgeous voice. The rest of the album is a little more usual—pleasant but not outstanding folk music made a little more interesting by the vocals. (Neile)
