Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

In the accompanying letter, Lindsey Yung mentioned that she’s grown. I’ll say!

I reviewed Yung’s previous releases, The Return and Fusion. Her first CD was disco; her second one was a bit of a departure, and this is very much more sophisticated.

Away From it All is a great opener. Her voice shines and the marchy melody is addictive.

Authentic Counterfeit is well written and I can imagine it on radio. Wow, her voice is impressive.

She plays piano and ukulele. Yep, ukulele. (Ukulele, Ukulele, Ukulele, Ukuleleā€¦that word looks weirder the more I look at it!) Listen to Scent of Summer if you don’t believe me.

I really like It Doesn’t Get Better Than This. It’s cute, and has a nice rhythm.

Good album packed with fun pop songs and an amazingly strong voice.
