Su's debut is blessed with solid musicianship, excellent production courtesy of her brother Brian and catchy pop tunes that anyone who drools over the thought of Lilith Fair will admire. But strip-mining the landscape of Sinead O'Connor, Ani DiFranco and Alanis Morissette doesn't leave much room for originality here. While Su tries to tell compelling stories, they quickly unravel into self-serving preachfests. Maybe it's the strict adherence to AOR formulas that keeps the tunes from hitting home. She sounds pissed off and full of angst throughout - you're just never really sure why.
