Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Sinem Saniye’s debut album is an up tempo record of varying styles with enchanting vocals.

I’ll Confide is sweet and a bit on the jazzy side. Saniye’s effortlessly sensuous vocals are the icing on the cake.

Boom Sheke Nana is catchy and has a Latin flavor to it as well as another lovely vocal. Middle eastern influences make it into the mix and add a bit of spice.

One Woman is a tango and that works well, Sanyie’s vocal make it special. The words are breathlessly sensual.

My Favorite Room is wonderful and soft.

This is a really great album and one that works to play a lot cause it reveals new layers each time.
