At times joyful, stark, and poignant, Gilkyson's second Red House project (and seventh career album) dances through a span of human emotions by way of rich vocals and uncomplicated musical backgrounds. Whether singing about the intimacy of love or the woes plaguing the world, her songs peek into a secret inner world where personal self-confidence and spiritual well-being can constantly be obtained. Set opener "Welcome Back" explores a person who was once disconnected from the world and is able to welcome sunshine back into life. From there, such tracks as the bluesy, gritty "Mama's Got a Boyfriend" and the melodic "Richmond Boy" discuss how complex relationships can remain simple by accepting others' love. "Easy Rider" wistfully details the rough lifestyle, yet enviable freedom of a traveling musician, while "Riverside" evokes the uncertainties of modern life with wistful yearnings for the past.—JP
