This record starts off with a BANG with three fast-paced varied songs and then slows down and speeds up throughout the rest. When Laura is ON she makes some of the best music I've ever heard. Her voice is very distinct and I can see how some may not like it, but I dig it.

Laura Nyro is best known as for writing such songs as "And When I Die" and "Stoned Soul Picnic". As a solo artist, she
was a highly energetic and passionate vocalist and piano player. She could be compared to Dusty Springfield or even
Amy Winehouse for being a white female dedicated to R&B and Soul music. Laura was managed by David Geffen early in her
career and is often lauded in critics lists, yet still she failed to capture a wider audience. This is probably
because her songwriting talents and actual vocal abilities were not equally strong.
As a vocalist, Laura tended to wail incessantly in a tone that could sometimes be a tad irritating. In some ways, her
showboating only proved she wasn't quite as good as singer as she may have believed she was OR she was overcompensating
for this shortcoming. For these reasons, she is probably going to be an acquired taste for many listeners.
Highlights: "Eli's Coming" and "Stone Soul Picnic".
