Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Morgan Grace makes brooding, dark yet compelling music.
“The King” is perched between Tori Amos and Nine Inch Nails industrial beats.
“La mer enchantee” is a classic-sounding delicate piano ballad.
“White Flag” is a song that uses martial terms to describe a fractured relationship. Grace fuses her piano playing with strings to great effect.
“Exit Wounds” is bleak yet marvelous song. Grace’s vocals are strong throughout.
“Beggar’s Alchemy” is a cut above most debuts and deserves to be heard.

Comment: I have to admit. I ordered the albumn and it’s been in heavy rotation on my WinAmp ever since. Morgan holds a majesty and undeniable presence in her siren’s call.
