Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Myriam G.S Mestiaen is a capable pianist and on this album she approaches a style somewhat like that of a more prog-influenced Tori Amos.
Recycling Woman uses a sitar to create a unique and bedazzling sound as Mestiaen weaves her spell.
The Soul is Blind is soft and makes a rather soulful sound, and the lead vocal is seductive.
Myriam G.S Mestiaen also works in a subtle jazz influence throughout the album.
Hangover Blues is a little bit bluesy, but retains a sharp focus. The singer remains icily cool and doesn’t show the intensity that a proper blues singer would.
Quicksand is a jazzy slow song to end this complex album on a happy note.
This is an exceptional album by any standards.
