Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

For a person like me used to folk-rock music this is a change. I dare say, this is almost disco!

“In The Morning ” makes me feel like I’m in a dance club with lots of spinning lights and brightly colored drinks served in martini glasses.

The songwriting is catchy though repetitious, but I guess that’s what is appealing about this genre: you know what’s coming so you know how to dance to it.

Madelin Zero’s voice is sexy kitten-ish and on “Perfect Day To Lose” you get to see how lovely it really is.

“On Top Of My Building” has a really funky old style sound. Reminds me of old Prince or Vanity 6.

This is really fun electronica CD that will delight lovers of funky dance music.
