When your parents are Richard and Linda Thompson, the pressure to release a classic debut album is unreasonably high. Although this set of engaging folk-pop tunes does not reach classic status, it demonstrates an undeniable ear for melody and strong arrangements, and displays Thompson's appealingly earnest vocals. Joe Henry proves a sympathetic producer, creating space and depth for Thompson's spare rocking.
