Montana Rose plays American music, and they are good enough to pay attention to. This is Western music, and the West is where America does it's best dreaming. Wallace Stegner said that " the West is the Native Home of Hope..." and in these songs there are glances at the past and hope for the future. Broken hearts heal, legends never die, and it is worth it to go on. This is Claudia's album, really, My Time, made with a bunch of superb musicians who love her and her singing. There are lots of musicians but fewer magicians and all you hear on this grand collection of songs is simply the best. Peter Bowen Livingston, Montana January '07.
