Comments:

Auburn's album has a bright yet very grounded feel and they have a gifted singer in Liz Lenton. Her vocals occasionally recall Victoria Williams. The title song is a pleasant, very well-woven tale with a gorgeous melody. "Stop the Clock" is a dreamy song of the kind Auburn do so well. "This is the life" waxes philosophical on taking chances and successfully so. It's a fine album. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
