Acoustic folk music meets pop/punk/country in a strong and daring shoot out. Listen to the dominating rhythm section and the fuzzed guitar of the opening cut, "I Need a Doctor," you know you are listening to an acoustic band making a strong, rocking statement. They even have Kevin Moloney (Sinead O'Connor and U2) as producer. However, the sisters' vocals still soar all over the album. The songwriting here (ten of the 14 are written by the group) seems to have taken a darker, more bitter turn. But there is a fantastic version of "Lovely Rita Meter Maid" to end the disc that is worth the price of admission.
