Forgive or Forget is Whiteley’s 4th release in nine years, and is a relaxing, easy-on-the-ears folk rock album, led by her smooth vocals, gently rambling acoustic guitar with light percussion, keyboards, mandolin, etc. accompanying. Perhaps this album’s most redeeming quality is its subtlety and simplicity – the songs are well-written but remain within a comfort zone, avoiding unnecessary entanglements of complexity. It does not try to be what it’s not. These are trouble-free, laid back folk songs evoking a summer breeze, a swaying hammock, an effortless country waltz. Nice stuff.GENRES: Contemporary Folk, Americana.
