Catie Curtis loses none of her emotional impact or subtle songcraft on her eponymous major-label debut. Working with a full band featuring Roy Bittan and Lee Sklar, as well as a host of horns, synths, and drum machines, Curtis nevertheless is able to keep the music sounding honest and direct, matching its impact with the emotional tone of the lyrics. Some longtime fans may find the production to be a little too smooth, but it helps put Curtis' talent in sharp relief.
