Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Jillian Ann’s music is ethereal yet strong. Her voice is appealing and smooth.

“Never Enough” is an electronica song of self assurance. Jillian Ann’s voice weaves in and out of the clicking beats like a siren.

“System” is a ghostly song with distant murmuring vocals. It could be a Massive Attack remix of a long lost Cocteau Twins demo.

“Little Space” has vocal like the Cranes’ Alison Shaw. The backing is a techno thud.

“Help Me” is an impossibly moving plea. Jillian Ann makes it beautiful and desperate.

“Reconnect” is darkly appealing with Jillian Ann’s vocal sounding child-like and spooky.

“Neverland” is a remarkable album.
