GIGANTIC voice - Great Record
Sarah Cleaver's "From Where I Stand" is a great disc. Thought-filled and quite political, the songs rush at you with a force of a Mack Truck. What I couldn't get over was the voice. It is so........intense is the closest thing that I can find to describe it. Also, the songs are quite addictive, and will be stuck in your head for days even if you listen to it 20 times over and over. In short- BUY IT!!! IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!
