Long-awaited. Very well worth the wait. What an exquisite journey. There is warmth, there is beauty, there is mystery, there is excitement. All around you, these sounds can be heard. Inez captures them like photographs and offers the listener a stunning vision.
Sit awhile, next to the speaker or just pass through the room while the enchantment continues. You’ll be attached to this LP like it was a long, lost friend.
I'm not going to sit here and describe this music with vivid sound descriptions, no need - as soon as you hear it for yourself, you will feign your own interpretation and forget all about what I said it sounds like. But as far as reaching a point of content, familiar, yes. Original, yes. Transcendental, yes. Bold, not so much. But it doesn’t need to be bold to stand alone in the mind. This music is highly edible and infectious.

Occupied with her signature vocal chants once familiar to the cassette boxed wonders dished and dispensed for us to gather, Lightfoot elevates her LP status with more acoustic instrumentation and teases us to be invited ever more slightly into her captivating world. Her language through a fog of drone is hypnotic - perhaps we are reaching for a familiar word to hang on to.

As it only feels like a beginning for this talented entity, in time this sound will blossom and can be joined with other boisterous and contemplative blooms to remain a spectacle of beauty well deserving of any and all praise hence forth.
