Breaking loose for a spell from the hard rock outfit Stone Mary, Christine Campbell is full of surprises. The mostly acoustic setting gives her room to display a vast vocal range and fluid guitar style that would get lost in amps turned to 11. Thom Swift contributes a rich helping of slide to make "Gleam" a standout. Notable assists also come from Brian Bourne on bass and Matt Andersen as guest vocalist on "Severed Strings." Occasionally, Campbell lets her high notes sail into a feral yowl that may provoke your cat. Overall, though, she's further proof that lately Maritime lady singer/songwriters have got it goin' on.
