On her hit single "What I Mean to Say," sweet-voiced Cyndi Thomson delivers up a taut, folk-rock-flavored lament for a love that got away. There's a yearning in Thomson's delivery that underscores her regret over words left unspoken. Thomson's debut album, however, is clearly not about to squander a golden opportunity. On the 11 songs here -- she wrote eight with her mentor, Tommy Lee James -- state-of-the-art mainstream arrangements abound: There's insistent drumming, searing guitars, discrete dollops of strings, and judicious quotes from various percussion and stringed instruments. But in front of all that is Thomson's engaging and credible mix of sass and vulnerability. "If You Could Only See" finds her boosting her man's low self-esteem in quintessential country-pop terms, with soaring choruses sandwiched between rapturous, sensitive verses. The album-closing "I'll Be Seeing You" and "Hope You're Doing Fine" are suffused with melancholy over departed lovers, even as each song's slow-boiling country-pop arrangement and terse vocal performance suggest strength surfacing in the wake of heartbreak. My World arrives radio-ready, but not without a bit of meat on the bone.
