Treasa Levasseur has a dynamic voice and a great band to back her on this album. She has a bluesy slant to what is a very varied sound, ands some choice covers to go with her originals. "A little Pride" has a classic sixties sound, and a vocal that's feisty and cool. Randy Newman's "God's song" gets a confident and bluesy reading that she really nails. "Still got love" has a New Orleans feel, and a sassy lead vocal. Neil Young's "Walk on" gets a great reading, Levasseur really making it her own. Her album is just wonderful.
