Stars was produced in Seattle and New York City with Layng Martine lll and Joe Ferla. It was Lori’s last release for Restless Records. “Take Your Time” was featured in a number of films and TV shows.
Lori Carson’s fourth album Stars may not be as consistently compelling as its immediate predecessor, the sublime Everything I Touch Runs Wild, but that’s not to say that it’s a bad record. It’s quite good, actually, and her songcraft continues to improve; it’s subtle, yet sturdy work. The main problem is that the production doesn’t pull the listener into the album, but Carson’s songs and performance are passionate enough that they become quite gripping once you get past the surface. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
