Although the emphasis is still on thoughtful, lyrical adult pop/rock, Laing has opted for a more stripped down backdrop, which gives the songs a more intimate feel. It is also the other extreme from her debut South, where the busy nature of the music was a bit too much. Instead, the sparse instrumentation here is a bit too little. Laing is a better than average writer, but not quite good enough to rely on her words sustaining interest in light numbers like "Heat And Smoke" or "The Man With The Wild Name
