Martha's Trouble have all the qualities that bands like 10,000 Maniacs with Natalie Merchant possessed — great songwriting, great melodies, and a great sense of timing. The duo of singer Jen Slocumb and guitarist Rob Slocumb perfect a soothing brand of adult contemporary pop on "City Skyline" that would make Sixpence None the Richer grow envious. The same can be said for the mandolin-fueled "Don't Hide Away," which contains more of a toe-tapping roots flavor. The strings are used sparingly, only elevating the tune. There are also some finely crafted pop tunes, especially "I Know" and "Waverly," the latter having Slocumb sounding like Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan. The consistency of the album is another plus as — judging by the laid-back "Sign of Life," which resembles groups like October Project — there is no filler. Here Chris Rosser also does a great job on harmonium and other instruments. The lone depressing Sarah McLachlan-ish moment comes during "Forget October," a song that never really gets off the ground and seems to drag in spots with its echoed vocals. Fortunately, they redeem themselves with a glowing acoustic "Sweet Irene." But once again they forge into the sweet pop fields on the slow-building but infectious "Keri."
