Comments:

The Acadias make sprightly, good-humored folk with great vocals and some choice tunes. "Blackberries and Pine Needles" is instantly engaging and has a lovely tune. "Stopped" has a heart-wrenching vocal and a melody that's easy to like. It's a wonderful record all told. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
