Unlike some lullaby albums that conjure a decidedly sappy nursery-rhyme vibe, the 12 tracks (11 original songs and one Tom Waits cover) on I Dream of You are hardly your grandmother's sing- me-to-sleep songs. Folksy and whimsical like the rest of JJ's catalog, everything on I Dream of You falls in line with the signature style she's spent years cultivating. Written from the perspective of a parent speaking words of love and encouragement to a child, this new record resonates with a message of unconditional love. From the opening upbeat title track, to the closing peaceful Lullaby with its breathtaking string arrangement and choir of crickets, I Dream of You appeals to the child inside everyone.
