Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

The Changelings have a beautiful and rich sound. Their front person Regeana Morris has an angelic voice that suits the bands eastern tinged music well.

They have been around for a while and it shows in their music, which is a layered and multi-dimensional experience. “Orbit” is a psychedelic dream that floats past with grace.

“Mata Hari” is a sensuous piece which has Morris singing as expressively as a nightingale.

Elsewhere they remake Pink Floyd’s trippy “See Emily Play” in their own special way and guitarist Damon Young sings suggestively on “Olympus Mons”.

Changelings have made of the finest albums of the year.
