"The best singer songwriters capture their world with such clarity that the particular becomes the universal. This cunningly titled debut from Shropshire-born Debbie Cassell achieves that feat with self-assurance; moments of loss, self-doubt and exhilaration are traced with a precision that frames private feeling against a recognisable English landscape. There are echoes of the folk-jazz of John Martyn or Bridget St. John in Cassell's unhurried phrasing and something of Eddi Reader in the way she'll linger on a note but there's a melodic flair that is her own. The arrangements are uncluttered and often gently swinging, the mood is mostly poignant, and bedsitter romance looms large but Cassell will also snap out of her own self-absorption with, say, the gorgeous chorus of Edge Of The World or her dismissal of little England, Back In My Home Town. There's nothing particularly contemporary here but the songs, the voice and the manner in which Cassell tracks emotions to their source is rare in any era."
[**** Mark Cooper, Q Magazine]

A fresh, impressive debut by an English singer-songwriter who cites
a debt to Joni Mitchell and certainly bears comparison for the cool,
jazz-inflected sweetness of her music and the restless, bittersweet
sensitivity of her lyrics."
[Mojo Magazine]

"One of the finest songwriters I've ever
heard, topped with a voice to die for."
[Peter Doggett, Record Collector Magazine]
