"The best part is that Marga Lane has every bit of the talent necessary to keep up with her amazing songwriting skills. This isn’t a songwriter that should ever be handing off her material for others to sing and perform; she has ounces of audibly-measurable talent and if this isn’t the sound of a determined artist giving it their all, well then I’ve honestly never heard it."

"The entire CD from the second it begins to the very last moment is a musical experience you will not soon forget. Lane feeds your emotions in the most graceful ways. Very rarely does an artist come along that rears me speechless. The name “Marga Lane” should be a new word added to Webster’s dictionary and the definition be defined as perfection."
