Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Béla’s debut album brims with radio friendly but still edgy rock and her voice is great.

Do You Care? is as catchy as Alanis Morrissette can be on a good day and has a dynamite guitar part.

The Masquerade careers past at a breakneck pace, Béla hollering for dear life and the band tagging along.

Dream Away is a neat song that’s near metal in its approach. Béla’s strong-voiced presence anchors it.

Don’t Cry is an unexpected Guns’n’Roses cover that works well. Béla’s voice is lovely here.

Her debut should be very popular indeed.
