Danish songstress Sanne (as in Susanne) Salomonsen has come out with this accomplished very midwest sounding album, with a little help from some of her L.A friends including the backing of the legendary band Little Feat on most of the tracks. If you can imagine Bonnie Raitt or a smoother Sass Jordan singing over the top of radio friendly midwest AOR then you get the general gist of the sound. It sure would be pleasant to listen to in the ol' convertible travelling down the freeway with the top/roof up. However, visions of severe smog and pollution has somehow dampened my enthusiasm for covertibles, perhaps it's not such a good idea after all. However, the album is punctuated by impressive songwriting contributions from Rick Springfield, Jim Vallance, Sheryl Crow, Maggie Ryder, Norwegian cult heroes Stage Dolls, and Adrian Lee (Mike And The Mecahnics). This in itself would be enough for any AOR fan investigating this album on the fly to fork out the dollars just for the collective privilege of such talent represented on one album.

The Songs
Well then, the songs.. 'Haven't I Been Good To You' is a great introduction, great syrupy stuff as one could expect from a Springfield/Vallance co-write, 'Love Don't Bother Me' is a worthy cover of the Stage Dolls song (from the 'Stripped' album). You know I still can spot a Stage Dolls song a mile away with that soldier's snare drum filtering through. The Maggie Ryder song 'Grip Of Love' is kinda upbeat with the electric piano being prominent. Then there is the slow burn of 'When A Woman Pretends' which sorta has a blues/gospel feel to it, while the Sheryl Crow track 'What Does It Matter' is quite nice actually, considering I don't really like much of her work (now on the other hand, Kevin Gilbert .. there was talent - RIP).

In Summary
All in all, a reasonable album for collectors of Danish.
