I swear I tried to listen for something special to tell you about On The Way. I have gone back to its gossamer like ebb and flow time and time again. After 2-3 weeks, hoping for my ears and perceptions to open up and take in its nice moments I can safely tell you this: On The Way is a nice work. A pretty work. A solid, if unspectacular recording.

Think a southern Sarah McLachlan as spokeswoman for the Lifetime Channel as Grammy-nominated Moore embraces the rich moments that make up our lives positively and affirmatively, but presents them to us in rather unremarkable ways. "You are so beautiful." Well, okay. "You are the one for me." That's nice. Thank you. "Because one you've crossed over there's no turning back." Yea well, that's nice. That's pretty. "I believe in love." Hey sure, don't we all?

One song, the romantic opener Into The Sunset sticks with me. So y'see, I'm not all cold rocks and gravel. The rest of On The Way is nice. And pretty.
