The album is sort of a grower in several ways: The first time I listened, I didn't like it very much. This changed very soon!
It's also a grower in the charts: In the Germany it stayed in the charts for a very very long time (I think it was at least one year).
It has an acoustic and mellow touch, there are less instruments and more vocals by Leslie Feist.
"1-2-3-4" is simply stunning and uplifting, "Brandy Alexander" is beautiful (later it was covered by a friend of Leslie - Ron Sexsmith), "The Park" and "The Water" are quiet but instant classics.
