Reviewed by Phil Thomson

The best singer/songwriters bare all - especially in a debut album. Raw, innocent, quirky, that kind of thing, ballads with tears; a bit of anger, mystery, even playfulness. We get to know who they are - through their drive, their unalloyed passion, their insistence on a unique view of the world. It would be in the phrasing, the instrumentation, the concepts. Not here. Sadly, Laura Sterling delivers up a clutch of rather timid songs - which might as well be anonymous - in a gentle, folksy, slightly nasal voice, with a limited range and little expression. Well, parts of some of the songs suggest a good musical idea, but there is no conviction, and the production is unimaginative. There is no style, no character. While the titles follow traditional lines - "My Eyes Are Ever On The Lord", "So Many Miracles", "My Lord, My Savior", "The Voice Of The Lord", etc, the compositions are predictable and the playing perfunctory; industry standard. In other words, there's actually nothing much wrong with it for a market which often takes bland MOR to its heart. It is simply not distinctive. I was looking for WOW! - if only one song to move me, a voice which would go all the way in the X-Factor, a sound to raise the hairs on the back of my neck. Not a hint of it. These days, your work needs to mean something, to stand out. What an opportunity for adventure, for entertainment (what's wrong with that?), surprise, excitement. Sincere, well-intentioned isn't enough. No risk, no point.
