Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Keri Shore has made a great record. It encompasses many styles and tempos with ease.

“Watching all the While” has a Spanish guitar part that’s brilliant. Shore’s passionate vocal is strikingly upfront.

“I Really Do” is a Cowboy Junkies-esque country song. There’s something of Chris Isaac’s retro fifties sensibility in the mix too.

“Break Down and Cry” is a very moving song. The sorrow in Shore’s voice seems genuine. Despite the title the song is catchy and up-tempo.

“Finding My Way” is a suggestive folk song.

Many of us can relate to the sharp lyrics of “Girl on TV”.

It describes an impossible ideal and what that makes us do to try and live up to it.

“Finally..” is a strong record.
