Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Francesca Gregorini has an energetic alternative rock sound and a sinuous voice. “Strange (Tale of Love)” is beautiful and haunting. Gregorini sings it sweetly despite the sad lyrics.

“Stupid One” is a real rocker. Gregorini sings it with conviction while the guitars form a powerful backdrop.

“Give My Life” uses a trip-hoppy sound, lushly orchestrated.

“Don’t Need Anybody” is a sarcastic song about an unemotional lover. Gregorini’s furious performance underlines it well.

The quirky “My Salvation” is instantly likeable.

The album ends with “Sugar Sex” which was co-written with Moby. It’s a sad and fluid song. Gregorini’s siren-like vocal gives it extra strength. It’s a fine record by any standards.

It’s a great CD. My gf and I both love it. But, y is it so underpromoted? The only promotions I ever see about Francesca is through her gf Portia. Is she going to stop hiding behind her or what?
