Comments:

Lindsay Katt's debut is very well put together, there are no weak songs and she writes thoughtful lyrics. "My happy" is a neat opener, with a complex and moving lyric and a great melody. "Is it you" has a nice hushed mood and a guarded vocal. The theme of emptiness is well presented. "Wretched Unbeliever" questions faith in a true and honest way. "Pretty in a paper bag" has some lovely piano playing and a stirring chorus. It's a very nice debut all told. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
