Review
Though her lyric drives occasionally get in the way of the flow of the music, Les Sampou's stories are intelligent and cleverly told, and well-buoyed by the instrumental arrangements. Though Les sounds at times like a number of other musical muses -- from Bonnie Raitt to Crystal Gayle -- her voice and what she uses it to say are personal and individual. Musically, Sampou and her band are also quite talented and never let the music overpower the meaning. ~ Matthew Robinson, All Music Guide
