Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Anat Damon’s music is charming and slightly reminiscent of a more electronically inclined Cat Power. She has apparently started making music fairly recently, but she seems assured in her art. She is a psychologist and has worked as rock band’s manager, so she has an interesting background.

“For you” is a gently spinning song with a light electronic backdrop framing Damon’s sweet vocals.

“Falling” is a remarkable song. It’s as restrained as the rest of the album, and just as magical.

The aptly named “Magic” is a sweet tune with a faint psychedelic undertow.

“Show me the Pain” is a magical mystery tour of a song. Damon’s love of the Beatles comes through, filtered in her own language.

“Naughty” is a poppy, fun song.

This album is lovely and its sophisticated sound shows Damon has come a long way for first timer.

Comment: Anat’s voice is krisp and harmonious. I found her songs to be very deep and her voice to refreshing and touching. I would compare her voice to Patricia Kaas and Carly Simmon with a smooth flow of words and music.
