Dulcie Taylor's Diamond & Glass collects a dozen smooth, easygoing songs that mix folk, pop, and contemporary country. Highlights include the brooding "Easy for You" and "Never Enough," the lively "It Ain't Love," and the surprisingly tough "I Don't Know Anymore," which also prominently features Taylor's prowess on the dulcimer. Throughout the album, Taylor's voice is as clear and versatile as her playing and songwriting, which uses little details to tell a larger story, as on the title track and "I Have a Ring." Though the album's slower songs sound a little too similar to each other, Diamond & Glass offers enough bright spots to make it a promising debut.
