Ever since my last trip to the local library, I have been listening to Parts of Speech by Dessa non-stop. I have heard the album before but for some odd reason at the time, I just wasn't impressed with what I heard. This time around my opinion has definitely changed for the better. Parts of Speech has quickly made me a fan of Dessa's music. The album as a whole has struck a chord with me both musically and lyrically. I absolutely love the way Dessa writes. She truly has a gift for songwriting. They are more like poetry or short stories especially on tracks like "Skeleton Key","Beekeeper", "The Man I Knew", and "Annabelle".
