Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I reviewed Rosey’s previous release called Dirty Girl and despite it being mainstream and dancy I adored it. I even got extra copies to hand out to friends who had heard it at my house and also loved it. When I heard she had gone jazz and was very intrigued. I could totally see her voice lending itself to this genre so I’m glad she took this direction.
This album does not disappoint. Perhaps because I already know the song, but I really like her new rendition of Love which was on the other record. It was great before, it’s great now.
She has a very smooth sexy style (hello? That cover?) that is very appealing.
The songs I liked on the previous release were ones where she used a bit of discord or at least minor notes, and she does that again here. Notably on My Love.
I think my favorite song is the title track, Luckiest Girl. The melody is addictive. I keep wanting to hit repeat.
This is a unique release and for that I am grateful. I’ve been hearing so much lately that sounds just like everything else. This is a new fresh sound that I think many of you will find refreshing and wonderful.
