    Leslie Tucker comes across as a writer of big ballads constructed to be hits in the style of Karla Bonnoff, or a less cabaret Melissa Manchester. She doesn't shy away from the large gesture or the open-hearted approach to a song, and there is no reason why she ought to. Tucker's soothing and smokey voice can stand up to it all. One also hears a little David Wilcox new age sentiment, but again she sings with a strong feminine authority. Her lyrics yearn for heart and home without resorting to musical or lyrical clichs. She is supported on this CD by a fine cast of musical characters; Tim O'Brian, Mike Marshall, and Jerry Douglas. One wishes the tempo picked up once in a while, but this will be a great fireplace and white wine album. ~ Richard Meyer

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (2-3/96, p.93) - "...Her songs speak of life and love and family with a firm certainty, humor and a pulse that helps her rise above the musings of many singer/songwriters....Tucker's one of the first signings to Alison Brown's Compass label...".
