ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Divination Review is a collective of international musicians formed around West Coast Canadian, singer-songwriter, Angelika Antalova. The current line-up hails from Austria, England and Slovakia, and has played in numerous bands in a variety of styles, ranging from jazz and fusion to Celtic-folk and country.
A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Angelique’s early musical influences include classic local bands The Poppy Family, Chilliwack and Prism, as well as other internationally known Canadian artists like Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, and The McGarrigle Sisters, Kate and Anna.
She also acknowledges the lasting inspiration of Big Bill Broonzy, Billie Holliday, Hank Williams, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Abba, Bread and Blondie on her song writing, finger-picking style and vocal harmonies. Further inspiration comes from First Nations Culture, the literary works of William Shakespeare and West Coast Canadiana.
The ten songs on this album mostly follow a traditional folk song structure, and can be best described as lyrically thoughtful and stylishly arranged. The musicianship is skilled and the vocals are clear, understated and melodic."

Musicians on this cd include Angelika. Antalova, Milos Zeleznak, James B. Evans and Miro Sibik. The album was recorded at Studio Lux, Bratislava, Slovakia. For more information please write to the following address : the divinationreview@gmail.com

Rare pleasure
A warm, mellow voice which guarantees goosepimples. These timeless songs encounter various musical styles besides folk and a bluesy touch. Strongly recommended for listening and chilling out !

Smooth summer
The Divination Review is a collection of songs which became one of our favorites while living in Greece over the summer. The CD begins with the lively „Angel of Joy“, which offers a captivating mix of instruments including mandolin and rhythm guitar. Angelika’s clear and at times somewhat smoky vocals make for very easy listening. She continues this with well timed vocals of clever lyrics on “Heart in Haste”, which also offers very nice musical arrangements of guitar, ukulele and bass. “Thor With Angels Above Me” has a haunting quality to the tune and the accompanying lyrics. In this, as in all the songs, Angelika shows her mastery of language through the intriguing lyrics. Each song is different from the others, but in all of them her pleasing voice does not disappoint the listener. “Love Un-blinded” has a powerful transition in the music which moves the listener emotionally and almost physically. The violin increases the rush toward the end of the song. “Solace Comes Too Slow” seems to carry a subtle message about feelings that didn’t quite measure up and reminded me of a comment Leonard Cohen once made, that he didn’t believe things could ever really work out between men and women. “Earth Voices” is a very pretty tune which reminds of an English ballad and has some very delicate string arrangements. There isn’t a weak song in the collection; it’s the kind of album that grows more beautiful the more you listen to it.
