Opener Nothing Here but Love starts like a pendulum. The soft, swinging melody symbolises the ups and downs of life. It then expands to become livelier and more light-hearted.
While most songs are tranquilis soothing, After the Winter is an exception. It has a tasteful melody which, together with Kripac's graceful and angelic voice, brings vitality.
But before the mood gets too poignant, the chorus introduces a spirited rhythm and messages of hope: "After the winter comes the spring / That's when the bluebirds start to sing".
The Top of Memory Lane is the album's most expressive number. The theme of unrequited love is nostalgically built up with sentiment and a slightly sorrowful feeling. But it ends on a hopeful note, as a great album wrap-up.
