Comments:

It's a fine debut by any standards. Jeneen Terrana combines sharp lyrics with memorable tunes. The langourous "Someone Else Has been Loving you" really gets to me. Its heartbreak is almost touchable.
     The irresistible singalong "Fuck You" gets me to merrily sing the chorus over and over. It's not unlike Ani Difranco's "Untouchable face" in that respect. "Superman" is quirky and cute. "Losing You" has a strong sense of desperation to it. "Something's dying, I need healing" sings Terrana as if her life depended on it.
     The version of "O Sole Mio" that closes the album really shows Terrana's voice at its best. It's a great way to end this lovely album. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)

Comments:

Jeneen Terrana's new album is just as sharp as her debut was. The sound is now more country and she handles it well. Her vocals are warm and inviting and her melodies are good. "New Book" speaks of starting over and its country slant is well done. "Bloody Valentine" kisses off a bad relationship in a sarcastic manner and has a good tune. "Train" is a simple and sweet song of saying goodbye to a loved one. She also covers Dolly Parton's "Jolene" and puts her own stamp on it. A very likeable album in all. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
