Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

This is Dani Linnetz’ first full-length recording and I am looking forward to hearing more.

Some time ago a friend had told me to keep an eye out for this musician knowing what kind of music I like and also knowing that Dani’s CD would be out soon. So I was elated to find it pop up in my mailbox!

The melodies are far from ordinary. She uses dissonant chords and alternating rhythms. The vocals are stunning. She has a really solid voice. But she also layers it with backing vocals (her own, I believe) to add another dimension.

Her lyrics are clever and well thought out.

Stand out songs are “An Excuse”; which shows the layered vocals well and “I Will Believe Again” with it’s radio friendly vibe.

“Most Beautiful” is also a great song and is a nice ending to this CD.

When I close my eyes
I look just like you
Wouldn’t have to work so hard
When the mirror breaks
It can no longer haunt so
why won’t it break
And set me freeā€¦
