Album Note - Laura Marling: I Speak Because I Can

MILES OF TRANE: YES. At only 20, on her second album, Laura Marling again shows a music more sophisticated and complex than a label like folk-rock can convey. She answers well any concerns that the follow-up to her Mercury Prize nominated debut album might not measure up, and both her voice and song-writing are more mature than her years on earth imply. Lala carries Laura but does not yet have this album specifically offered, although some of the songs on it are offered. I don't why they do it that way but I recommend a listen.
