Just about everything that Custer LaRue performs turns out beautifully, and that's certainly the case again with her 1993 release, The Daemon Lover. LaRue's glorious soprano is in fine form on the title song (which may be better known to some as "The House Carpenter") and, indeed, all throughout the album. From "Fare Ye Well, Lovely Nancy" to "Queen Jane" to "The Ash Grove," it's sure to please fans of folk ballads with its authentic historical sound, and is definitely recommended. ~ Murray Fisher, AllMusic
