Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Clare Means has a lovely voice and puts it to good use on her new record.

The great opener New York Night quietly paints vivid pictures of the Big Apple to a lovely tune.

Haunt You sees Means play an almost reggae rhythm and sound confident and tough. The song has an intriguing lyric about lost love.

Notions of Love is a sensitive and moving song, Means expressing herself well. The tune is instantly likable and engaging.

Angels of the Freeway sounds like a long lost classic, an anthemic and melancholy song with a marvelous chorus. Means sings of the freedom of the road and the loneliness all at once. This album is just great.
