Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Swedish singer Åsa Rydman’s album is a very pleasant listen.
Opener “A thousand Stars” is a hypnotic, soulful creation with a strong vocal. The title track is yearning and poppy. It’s a bit like Dido’s recent work, Åsa’s voice is angelic and tender. The dynamic guitar solo gives it a welcome edge.
“I do Believe” is a likeable disco song. I’m reminded of Madonna’s “Ray of light” period.
The mystical-sounding “Come” is my favorite song here. Its cinematic scope and escapist lyrics make it a great song.
“Seeds of Love” is a lovely record.
