I really love intelligent lyrics and Jenny Whiteley’s poetry and word-smithing is superb on her new album, Forgive and Forget. Whiteley teams up with world-renowned Canadian producer Steve Dawson, who can turn almost any song into ear candy. His production genius makes a potent elixir of great performances and smooth sounds from start to finish. Stand out tracks to listen are: “Forgive and Forget,” which has a really nice ’70s style production and gorgeous vocal performances all around including backups and harmonies. “Kind Mirror” is straight up goosebumps; it’s a soft ballad with reverbed electric guitar pads floating in the background in a Lanois-esque style. “Cold Kisses” is a cool, spooky country twanger with whiny pedal steel and deadly harmonies that put you in the moment of serious heartbreak. Watch out for the song slack, its catchiness will creep up on you and stick in your head for days. Forgive or Forget is a solid album from start to finish.
