Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Sofia Sensei’s record has a haunting quality to it. The songs she has written with Rick Watling are very strong.

“Fly Higher” has a message of hope and a very nice sound to it. “Insides Out” is tougher with a distorted vocal and string instruments used in an unfamiliar way.

Sunseri approaches her vocal on “I Wait” with a jazz singer’s sense of timing. The song itself is an odd but appealing cross of jazz and trip hop.

The lengthy “What is Happenin” uses the African instrument djembe to great effect. The songs slow groove suits Sunseri’s voice perfectly.

It’s a very nice record that should appeal to most tastes.
