By Jane Howkins

It’s a beautifully gentle track with a haunting edge to it, with LaRue’s soft vocals gelling well with the wonderful instrumentation in the background, provided mostly by a banjo, acoustic guitar, and sumptuous string section. It truly is beautiful in a most evocative way – this really is eden, if such a thing exists.
