Lori Carson is possibly best associated with The Golden Palominos, the ever-morphing group of Anton Fier. On her solo record, Carson displays that she, too, can play along with all those breathy girlie singers who emote over acoustic guitars and various instrumentation. Generally you can expect an entire album of non-offensive, safe material that seldom even approaches anything remotely out of the expected paradigm. Her voice isn't bad at all and these are the sort of songs that you might play late at night while reading a novel or as low background music to a pedicure. Tori Amos, she ain't. But at the same time, it might just appeal to those who get a kick out of breathy girlie singers.
