Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

As soon as I opened this CD I remembered reviewing Emily Maguire before. Strangely what I remember the most is that she lived in a the countryside and made her own cheese. Well, that and that I really dug her music.

This album is great and I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to actually put pen to paper and write about it.

Emily’s style is in the vein of Sarah McLachlan (Autumn Leaves), but I’d also say that there are times when she reminds me of Beth Orton (Brave New World), or Thea Gilmore (Lighthouse Man).

Lighthouse Man is the single and I can see why, it’s pretty catchy.

I also like the title track, Believer. But honestly the whole album is really good. If you like one song chances are you’ll like them all.
