comforting functional family music
You could play this album as background music in a restaurant or gift shop and it would create an urban folk vibe that most people would be comfortable with. Michele Ryan's solo voice is smooth and comforting and the instrumental accompaniment is well balanced with the vocals.
However, if you listen more carefully to the lyrics you will find that this is quite unique and is much more than just comforting music. The underlying theme of this album is family life, but most of the other music out there that is about this focuses on the angst created by dysfunctional relationships. But for those of us lucky enough to have grown up in a functional, loving family there is not much music that we can relate to. This album is a welcome exception. "Anniversary Song" is my favorite, and reminds me of my own parents.
Do not think, however, that this music does not have depth. The lyrics are probably autobiographical, and reflect a truth borne out of experience, but they are also universal enough that I can relate to them.
In contrast to Ryan's songs, the lyrics to the last track, "Our House," by Graham Nash actually seem shallow. It evokes a childlike image of a romantic relationship, in contrast with the life-long relationships described in Anniversary Song, Anyway and Stay With Me.
