Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Barbara Trentalange has a nice, moody sound on this new album, and a fascinating voice.

Opener Fever is kind alike P.J Harvey in a pop mode, alls seductive vocals and odd bleeping noises.

Heavy Metal Astroman has an apt title since it’s a buzzing heavy rock kinda thing. Trentalange has a way with these things, and a nice line in enigmatic lyrics.

Racing With Nowhere to Go is softer, the singer singing sweetly to a stripped-down backing.

The closing title track is a fitting and intriguing end to this record. Trentalange sings like a siren to a soft backing and the melody is elegiac and moving.

It’s a very appealing record.
