Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I’ve reviewed Anna Dagmara few times in the past. I’ve always liked her simple style. By simple I mean there’s no fancy stuff, just great piano playing, pure voice that doesn’t rely on heavy production to sound good. There are other instruments, but…you know what I mean.
She has a bit of what I call ‘Muppet rock fever’ but I’ve come to expect that and enjoy it from her. There’s also a bit of Billy Joel-ish piano here. You can’t go wrong with that, with me.
The title song is really cool and theatrical. There’s also a bit of a celtic feel on the this one.
Smile For Free, Daydream, Shadow of a Doubt, and Can We Be Old Friends were also on her EP which made [my best of list in 2006]
Great record by a consistently great artist.
