If Amanda got some guitar and harmonica accompaniment she could be the greatest blues woman of the modern era. She is superb.

It's interesting... I liked her energy and her message and her words but I think I have my own internal beat that I expect spoken word poetry to be done to and she was on a different beat and it kept creating this sort of rhythmic dissonance in my head that took away from the message a bit for me.

I'll give it a few more watches though. I suspect it will grow on me.

Hey Nacaron - I agree with you. That’s why i think she needs a band - to get some tempo.
