I'll never forget listening to Plumb's lullaby album Blink for the first time. For me, it'd be almost three years before I even knew what parenthood looked like from that perspective, but I remember letting the beautiful harmonies and Tiffany's soft vocals wash over me as I sat in an easy chair listening to the songs on my iPod. It's one of those albums that transcends its target audience and becomes much more than what it's conceived to be. Although Blink holds so many more new meanings for me now with a little one of our own in the picture, it's still a gorgeous album that should not have its listeners limited to just young parents or children. Plumb crafts a record aimed at parents while also delivering soft melodies that work just as well for little ones to listen to. But fear not! This is not a "childrens" album by any means. You won't find any silly songs or the musical equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. Blink is pure bliss. (And be on the look out for a brand new regular Plumb album due out sometime this year!)
