Tristen — Charlatans at the Garden Gate
Honestly, having heard these songs for years in a live setting, it did take some getting used to their alternate presentation on this debut full-length album. Since I was already so familiar with the basic structures, I couldn't help but be drawn in. I've always loved her clever lyrics and that hasn't changed a bit here. I certainly consider myself a big fan through and through but feel compelled to convince you to see her live to really GET it... the energy is too perfect.
