On A Clear Night, Missy Higgins’ second album showcases her soaring voice and her skillful songwriting. This collection is a nice mix of slow and upbeat, with lots in between.

Where I Stood, the opener, is a moving piano ballad, which has been featured on the shows One Tree Hill and Smallville. Higgins’ voice takes us through a tale of lost love and yearning with a sad melody. The second track, 100 Round The Bends picks things up with strong stirring guitars and upbeat lyrics; Higgins’ free spirit comes through on this song. Steer, also a driving-themed song, is another highlight. Angela and Peachy are upbeat songs, even though the latter expresses anger towards a former lover.

On the slower side – Warm Whispers is a beautiful ballad, while Going North has a folksy feel to it. Secret is a gem -slow, mysterious, and seductive, and this listener’s favorite tune off the album. The album closes with the touching acoustic sounding Forgive Me – a man’s apology to his son and wife.

Missy Higgins’ latest is a solid album – well written and passionately performed -and would be appealing to fans of any genre. On A Clear Night will undoubtedly grow on the listener.
