The Isaak style is most obvious on the title cut, a mystical piece of portraiture that is one of the album's best songs. She goes more traditional on "Two Fools," a regretful ballad that wouldn't feel out of place on a Patsy Cline record.
The album stumbles on an overly self-conscious cut called "If I Wanted Your Opinion." It's a feminist anthem with cloying lyrics like "I'm not a poster on the wall, I'm not a porcelain doll, I think it's funny how you think you run the show." It feels calculated for radio play, or to appeal to a target audience — but of course that's just an opinion.
The song diminishes the album but doesn't ruin it. There's too much fresh material here for that. On another fine cut, "One Heart," Anne defends going all-in for love despite the risks, singing, "I'd rather blow the whole thing up than never light a match."
That makes the point without being quite so obvious. It's another demonstration that Anne does her best work when she leaves the calculations aside.
