"Just when you thought Country music had lost it's edge, Texas Martha sounding a bit like Lucinda Williams country cousin, fronting the Tennessee Three, has come along and not just blown the dust off of our beloved Country music, but given it a hefty kick up the backside at the same time". (A. Harrison, The Rocking Magpie).
"All the songs were written by Martha, who plays her part with determination and conviction, freshness and an obvious deep love for these sounds. It is this spirit that pervades all ten songs, making the album a success and one of the most enjoyable in recent times. We experience an alternation of truly reflective, poetic and solid honky tonk, united by the common denominator of the talent and warmth of Texas Martha. This band is a must to mark in your agenda and see in concert (Remo Ricalone, Lonestar Times)
