    An elegant, luminous album.

    This is not to provide a blasting showcase for Chaney, as there is little ego on this record, and her talents at delivery and depth ripple through softly but persuasively.

    Chaney's robust voice commands the room, deftly weaving between the intersecting lanes of vulnerability and raw power with remarkable poise, especially on standout cuts like "Dragonfly," "Roman Holiday," and "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn," the latter of which uses the "cockles and mussels alive, alive oh" refrain from the traditional Irish ballad "Molly Malone" to devastating effect.

    Chaney moves with ease from nearly operatic to contemporary and casual and sounds equally at home.

    It becomes powerful when given proper care and attention.

    Although her music is naked in one sense of the world (sparseness), she doesn't reveal herself here.
