Picks and Pans Review: You Could Have Been with Me
Easton establishes herein that the flash-flood success of her debut American LP was no accident. She has verve, range and the technical finesse to handle gracefully such a tricky device as an aspirated "h-h-h-heart" in a likable, effervescent tune, Just Another Broken Heart. Easton does sound a trifle shrill and overproduced from time to time. But there's a striking contrast when she sings, un-echoed, with only a guitar behind her. Good examples: the title song that's become a hit single and the deliberate, affecting I'm Not Worth the Hurt. All in all, this is an appealing LP, up-tempo or down.
