“Jackie’s second album with Matt Fell producing opens windows into her soul in a heartfelt way that leaves little to wonder about when it comes to a life lived. Heartbreak features big in Fools Fall Hard and Trampoline, she fights back in Game Over, while female support is evident in Friend. Family figures large in Precious One and the influence of Jackie’s small community in the Illawarra can be discerned in tell-tale ways. There’s a mix of tenderness and hard-earned truth in the 10 self-penned songs, with a marked improvement in Jackie’s song writing over her first offerings and as she says in In my own skin she is ‘comfortable in my own skin’. Jackie’s vocal presentation also show a new confidence that makes this a fine example of contemporary country music. There is something special in the album’s overall sound that comes from the closeness of singer and producer working on something they both believed in and those augers well for a long career.”
