Watch her video for “The Rope” (radio mix) at Youtube:

“No One Will” opens up the collection on a high energy note. By far the highlight of the collection is the soothing subdued sound of “The Rope”. Dark in nature at first the song grows ever more hopeful as it progresses. Melodies soar with the greatest of ease as the piece grows ever larger. The cyclical structure helps it work wonders as Bitter’s Kiss appears to move towards the listener with each verse. Stripping the sound down to the absolute essentials is the tender ballad of “Love Won’t Make You Cry”. Sparse in style the piece grows ever happier. Lyrics move away from the initial unhappiness to find an inner kind of joy. Rhythms drive forward with great power on the emotional “Friday Nights”. A dreaminess defines the song as the lyrics tell a story. Ending things on an energetic note is the triumphant “My God”.
