The guitar-/keyboard-playing Megan Burtt is wounded enough to be
skeptical, but too resolute to descend into cynicism.
Burtt's music is dark pop with a heavy country tinge and rhythmically
charged underlayer. By the time she makes it through the second and
third cuts ("Over Me" and "Settle Me Down") it's clear that good stuff
is to follow. By the next track, "Habit," it's clear she's also capable
of challenging herself. "It Ain't Love," with a solo from guitarist
Adam Tessler, is almost country metal, but its sound and feel are natural.
All the songs here are constructed from elements that are blended
together, not tacked on. Berklee degree or not, you can't hit the mark
as squarely and as consistently as Burtt does without having the right
stuff. - RA, Vintage Guitar Magazine
