Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

This is what I’d call a “Cute” album. Her voice is sweetsy and it contains tinkly piano. If you don’t like girly voices this one’s not for you. The piano playing is even cute. I don’t know how that’s possible, but that’s what it sounds like to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Sometimes I’m in a mood for something like this.

If you’re a fan of Vanessa Carlton I think you’ll approve. She reminds me a lot of her both vocally and stylistically. She’s been compared to Regina Spektor and Billy Joel, but I honestly don’t see that. Billy is more rock and Regina is more weird. There’s nothing weird about this record.

The songs are definitely catchy, poppy and more mainstream than what I generally listen to by choice. But she’s good.
