Likewise, her thematic approach has never been panoramic; instead her albums tend to feel like private journals, wherein a particular mood is set and then sustained and refined.

The same holds true, with a few subtle but important variations, for Baird's third solo album, Don't Weigh Down the Light. Her past albums have featured several interpretations of traditional folk standards and well-wrought covers of such obscurities as House of Love 's "Beatles and the Stones".

Baird's first solo album, 's Dear Companion , featured mostly cover songs, and while Seasons on Earth contains mostly originals, there are two cover songs here, and they're great. Baird takes "Beatles and the Stones," a song by the British band The House of Love, and shows it to be a brilliant example of the alchemy of song — the words, which don't really make logical sense to the brain, feel true and immediate to the heart. Baird's version of the Mark-Almond band's song "Friends" wisely stays close to the simple directness of the original.

Highlights of Baird's Seasons on Earth originals include the lovely move to a major key in the chorus of "Share," the exultant, odd-metered rhythms in "Stream," and the subtle additions of pedal steel, dobro, harp and electric guitar tastefully sprinkled throughout by Baird's assisting musicians.
