Review by LarryG
3 stars out of 4

Lord honed her craft playing acoustic guitar in the Boston transit system. Here, she has the sense to flesh out her sound with a good band. The songs are strong, whether written by her or others. She more than does justice to Freedy Johnston's simple tale of domestic bliss, The Lucky One. Her voice is undeniably girlish but it creates an interesting tension with the slightly sleazy subject matter on Throng of Blowtown and the exilirating rocker, Some Jingle Jangle Morning. In fact, she fares worst on She Had You, where she plays the more stereotypical woman pining for a guy.

Here's what others reviewers have to say:

"...Her summery folk pop stays grounded in her trusty acoustic guitar, although it's polished up enough here to evoke a whole line of wide-eyed girls, from Lesley Gore to the Bangles and Lord's own mentor, Shawn Colvin..." 3.5 Stars (out of 5) Rolling Stone 1/22/98, p.56
