This Madison duo's third release is a set of down-tempo acoustic love songs rooted in jazz, blues and folk. The CD thrives on the marriage of Thomas Burns' delicate and reflective songwriting and Sue Prodell's emotional vocals.

The best songs include an element of mystery. "Right Past the End" uses eerie minor chords to describe a relationship that carries on with post-mortem strangeness after its own demise. "Lead Me Home" reveals an inexplicable incapacity to steer a relationship.

The album satisfies as a bittersweet love letter that, despite its title, is never sure which turn leads home.
