On the surface, Believe It! is standard-issue bar-band blues-rock, but it is distinguished by Joanna Connor's passion for the music. Connor believes in the music so much, it can't help but appear in the grooves every once in a while. In particular, her guitar playing is noteworthy -- it's tough, greasy, and powerful. Believe It! suffers from a lack of memorable songs -- she's still trying to develop a distinctive songwriting voice -- but Connor's strong performances carry the album through any weak moments.
