How can you not love a CD that begins with “Misery”? This cd is a snapshot of life wrapped within sorrowful, yet glorious vocals and rich warm melodies. Silvera has grown up in her music. This album is dark, deep, and honest with lyrics that strike. “Here comes the Pain”, “Misery” and “It’s yours” are real and raw, examples that her style is very well developed and her talents refined. With tracks such as “Slow wide open”, it elevates the soul unto a level where you not only remember the heartache life brings, but are reminded to embrace the pain and let it go as to grow. Silvera and producer John Whynot have nailed this one. Talent is a family affair, by the way, as son, Graeme Whynot, plays guitar on “Wide open” and “Hard”. This is the last recordings of Bass player, Wes Wehmiller (Duran Duran, Missing Persons) and is not to be missed.
