“Singer, songwriter & musician Mary Jennings delivers a dramatic swirling, sweeping midtempo anthem via “Love You Best,” in which she delivers a universal lyrical tune about reflecting on the highs & lows of the great love of her life. Mary’s folk delivery is amped here with a wondrous template of rich instrumentation, including sweeping strings, a hint of electric guitar and driving percussion. But most of all, she has come up with another melodic bulls-eye sing-along that will have her minions singing in unison. “Love You Best” is primed for critical mass, indeed.”
“For first time listeners, Jennings is an artist that will make people sit up and take note, not just of her singing but of her songwriting. She really is the real deal, but for those fans who have been listening for awhile, well they know that already. ”
“Mary Jennings knows how to deliver a song. Her highly personal and emotional singing style is raw and captivating. It’s the sort of performance that keeps audiences rapt with attention; leaning in toward the stage do they don’t miss a thing. Take It Or Leave It captures the energy and power of a Jennings performance for those who haven’t been lucky enough to see her live, or for those who have and want to recapture the moment. Don’t miss this album. Rating: 4.5 Stars (Out of 5)”
