Tweet 'It's Me Again' album cover

Melissa Ruggieri of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reviewed Tweet’s new album ‘It’s Me Again’, giving it a ‘B-‘ grade. Ruggieri writes, “While there isn’t anything extraordinary about the delicately pretty singer, she knows how to use her voice, particularly on the sparse acoustic ballad “Where Do We Go From Here?” The problem on this overlong set — 16 songs clocking in at an hour and three minutes — is that by song No. 6 it sounds as if you’re listening to No. 16.” The article at timesdispatch.com has since been removed.
