The best songs on this gentle singer/songwriter's debut album come from the high-school football documentary Go Tigers! (which was directed, not so coincidentally, by Carlson's husband). They also represent where Carlson is coming from as a performer: eager to please, with a sweet voice to back up her pleasant tunes. Best is "I Know You By Heart," a tender piano ballad tailored for adult contemporary radio. ~ Michael Gallucci, Rovi
