Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Julianna Raye’s second album arrives nine years after the first which was produced by Jeff Lynne.

This new album has smooth textures and a slight lounge influence. Raye’s languorous vocals come to the fore throughout.

“New Moon” sounds slightly eerie las if it came from the soundtrack to a David Lynch film.

The jazzy “Indigo River” is sweet and seductive.

“Dark Night of the Soul” is sad but not too downbeat and Raye’s silky voice conveys the feeling perfectly.

“More Wine” is a duet with the gifted Rufus Wainwright that shows the two singers in an inspired union. It’s the sort of a song that might play over the closing credits of a good romantic film.

“Restless Night” is a comeback that should put Raye’s name on the map.
