Rachael Sage has been running her own label long enough to be a real presence in the indie world. Her new album is as accomplished as always and the songs resonate. "Invincible" speaks of romance and cloaks it in intriguing metaphor. Sage's piano playing is as ever brilliant. "Angel in My View" is one of the best songs, Sage managing a bright but hardly na¨ve love lyric.
"Wishbone" is soft and sweet, Sage's vocal is at its best. "Moonlight and Fireflies" is unexpectedly soulful, but she carries it off well. Sage incorporates more jazz influences than she has before and her album benefits from them.
