I listened to this album over and over and over again with the goal in mind to get to know Grace Potter a little bit… see what I could hear.
Nobody’s Born With a Broken Heart created a place in my heart for Grace that made me feel like I know her a little now. This song has a depth to it, telling a story you have to hear for yourself. The earnest sincerity in her voice on this song moves me.
Look What We’ve Become is a defiant I Told You So song that I am sure many can relate to. I love the back masked guitars on this one.
The Miner is a nice, kool, tender song. Grace’s voice has this familiar quality to it… yet uniquely hers.
Empty Heart is everything I like about 70’s music flashed forward to 2015.
Your Girl is a HIT. I’d bet my right pinky on it, only because the left pinky is my ring finger. Seriously, Your Girl has all the tools in the box that makes a Hit a Hit & I DIG it!
MAAF Box Listening Pleasure: YOUR GIRL, Empty Heart, The Miner, What We’ve Become, Nobody’s Born With a Broken Heart.
