Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

I’ve previously reviewed an ep by Naomi Greenwald, and was looking forward to this full-length album. Thankfully it’s good and her lovely vocals remain charming.

Opener Evan Williams immediately sticks in the mind, with a catchy tune and some lovely harmonies.

Don’t Forget Hallelujah is becalmed and bears a slight resemblance to the Innocence Mission’s stuff. Her vocals are truly gorgeous here.

More Than Perfect is a song that has a sense of grandeur that she inhabits well. Her vocals are sublime here.

Desire to Fall is rockier track that she handles well.

It’s a superb debut all told.
