by Badi Assad
Released: Sep 2005
This passionate, novel and stylistically voracious album will literally leap out of your speakers. Her first solo album since she suffered a temporary motor disability, Assad comes out swinging, coupling her virtuosic guitar playing with deft, playful singing -- and unusual covers of songs like U2's "One," Bjork's "Bachelorett! e" and the theme from the film Amelie.
