Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-09-27Melbourne, Australian native Anne McCue gives up her rocker image for a quieter, folksy blend of tunes recorded in Nashville. Inspired by the folk-rockers of '60s America, McCue tries her hand at it, to good effect. She plays virtually every instrument on this set -- guitars, banjo, mandolin, piano, percussion, ukulele and drums. Fans of her previous CDs will be surprised at the curve she throws listeners, but McCue is a good student of the folk-rock genre and holds her own. The first three tracks and "Money in the Morning" are highlights. The CD as a whole suffers a bit from the similarity of the songs and the (usually) reflective subject matter and tone, but there's no denying this artist's talent for songwriting and musicianship.
