spanning tense rockers, blues, folk, & singer/songwritery piano ballads, it gradually reveals itself as Marshall's most mature & thematically focused work.

a collection of songs about finding freedom and peace wherever she can, 'You Are Free' opens with a stunning trio of songs that encompass most of the moods & sounds she explores later in the album, 'i don't blame you', 'you are free' & 'good woman', with eddie vedder on backing vocals. As the album progresses, it moves toward the spare, affecting ballads that give her later work a strange timelessness; listening to 'You Are Free' gives the impression of stripping away layers to get to the essence of Marshall's music.

ami says : “i’ve fallen in love all over again with chan marshall’s intimate songs of anguish, recorded with the bare bones of accompaniment each song sounds like she is giving a piece of herself away – fiercely beautiful.”
