Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
First of all, cool CD cover.
Luckily the music is pretty cool as well. Yola’s voice reminds me al little of Gwen Stefani. She has the same pouty-girl thing happening.
The music is rhythmic pop that makes you want to bounce around. Most of these songs would fit nicely on a party mix CD.
She does a cover of Bananarama’s “Venus”. It’s much more growly than the original so she makes it her own. Very nice.
Stand out Songs: “I Wanna Be Loved By You” (nice piano, mellower), and “Saying Goodbye” (her voice really shines here).
