In these health-conscious times, it\'s tempting to distrust the sweet and pretty. But not everything that tastes good is bad for you. Bear that in mind as you listen to Eddi Reader\'s latest solo album, on which she teams up with fellow British pop-folkie Boo Hewerdine (who plays guitar, produces, and wrote half the songs) to deliver a luscious program of bittersweet lyrics couched in whipped-cream melodies and airy, largely acoustic production. "Kiteflyer\'s Hill" takes the threadbare conceit of doomed summer love and turns it into a melancholy but quietly joyful celebration of memory; Reader\'s version of Hewerdine\'s "Bell, Book and Candle" beats his own by a mile, primarily due to her gently virtuosic singing; "Follow My Tears" is a heartbreaking portrait of an aging emigrant remembering her good and decent husband and the home they reluctantly left in their youth. No fast songs here — from beginning to end, this is music that will lull you into a blissful half-doze and mostly keep you there. But that doesn\'t mean it\'s boring any more than its sweetness means it\'s bad for you.

Encompassing everything from understated acoustic ballads to jangly, guitar-driven pop, Eddi Reader\'s folk-rock hybrid rarely plays it straight. Picking up where she left off with 1997\'s Candyfloss and Medicine, Reader remains true to her own unique and enjoyable muse. Of course, it doesn\'t hurt that her always-amazing voice is in top form. "Prayer Wheel", with its exuberant chorus, masks a story of lost love behind a veneer of unadulterated pop. As usual, Reader draws on a number of songwriters to compile a top-notch collection of songs (including one, "On a Whim", written for her by Ron Sexsmith). But the best songs here are the ones written by or with long-time musical partner Boo Hewerdine: "Bell, Book and Candle" is a gorgeous, haunting tale of lost love, while "California" has a truly greasy groove to go with Reader\'s equally sexy vocals. Besides, it\'s always endearing to hear a Glasgow gal work her way around the word "California".
