Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Former Rain Fell Within singer Dawn Desiree’ has created an impeccable solo record. Mark and Michael Riddick assist her on various instruments.

The gorgeous opener “Waltz of the Afterlife” showcases her angelic voice to its finest effect.

“Dance in Time” has echoes of Tori Amos circa “Boys for Pele” and adds layers of its own ethereal kind. Its beauty is exquisite and painfully real.

“Revenge” is more aimed at the dance-floor and succeeds in getting there while still retaining the airy feel of the other tracks.

“Plastic Girl” is hauntingly sparse and has a sound not a million miles removed from Bjork’s “Vespertine”.

This album is a beautifully packaged work of art. It should seal Dawn Desiree’s reputation as one of the best singers around.
