This is a very nice album. Rachel Gaudry reminds me of other singers, but she has her own style. The melancholy "When Fortune has Gone Dry" is a great song. "Sunshine in My Pocket" is delicate and emotional.

This album is so sweet and lovely. Gaudry picks up where the last album left off and that's a good thing. "Sunny Wings" opens the album with a nice laid-back vibe. The jazzy "Suppertime" hints at something darker. "Screaming Alone" is a standout. A bluesy, trip-hoppy gem that oozes melancholy. "Everywhere you go" is like early Paula Cole. Gaudry's vocal is joyous and sincere. "Brand New Day" is a hopeful and strong song. All in all she's made another fine album. (email@example.com)
