Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Lizzy Parks sings quiet songs on this record, and her vocals are delightful throughout.

The title song is gossamer soft, evoking the lovely Beth Orton in a subdued fashion.

Deluge continues with the bossa influence and Parks’ warm vocal really works for the sound. The instrumental backing sounds good here.

Time is wonderful, and Parks really makes it work her vocal is as cool as ever and the melody is soft.

Eyes of a Child is sweeping and intimate, Parks sweetly singing of hope.

Lizzy Parks is a gifted performer and this is a really nice album.
