I picked up the latest album by Kathleen Edwards this weekend. Asking for Flowers is her fourth disc (if you count Live from Bowery Ballroom), which was co-produced with Jim Scott.
I've listened to the album about five or six times now. It doesn't venture to far from Failer and Back to Me, but this album hasn't hooked me like those two albums did.
Critics have said this is her best album yet, and unfortunately I disagree. Flowers is a solid outing by Edwards but it lacks the piss and vinegar of her earlier efforts. Hopefully I will grow to like this album more in the coming weeks.

Kimya Dawson plays The Bluebird on April 22nd. I can't wait! Lately I've been itching to see a rock show and this should be great one!
