Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

This is a very nice debut that Caitlin Jane and her band have made. Her music is alternative rock, but a good deal more complex than most other records in the genre. Her voice is silky smooth, but can be assertive as well.

“The Ocean Between Us” has a laidback vibe and a yearning theme. Caitlin Jaene captures longing perfectly in this song. The guitarist Fonzo plays beautifully here.

“Words of Admiration” has lovely harmonies and a great tune.

“Run From You” is an edgy piece that shows Caitlin Jaene’s gift for doing good rock songs.

“Forever-Vampire Song” approaches the subject matter in an intriguing way. Caitlin casts herself as a vampiress enchanting her victim.
“Meet me after dark, I’ll take you from your world” she sings. The music is eerie and suggestive.

The album ends with the lively “Andrea”. Caitlin Jaene sounds utterly confident and Fonzo”s playing is amazing.

All in all it’s a very well crafted modern rock record.
