Album Notes
The context of this album is created by poetry that embraces the emotion. The singers' style of symbolism expresses her interesting way of creativity. The length of this album on an average maybe short, but to the point. Examples of creativity portrayed through her words may include, like on track 1: Shape of the mouth: his face was to the mirror relating to his story of a stranger he knew. She seems to follow her poetry through stories she experienced. I believe she really wants us to feel her song. The instrumental expression also brings out the character of each song. The dreary sax intro. begins her first tale and leads into a climax of enchantment. This first tracks' end is fascinating for the ascending choir vocals that unleash with a break into bass beats (using the archaic 808), thus creating a mysterious magic spell.
A story about a girl that came from Texas (track 2)-speaking of magic spells, this one is out right trancy. Her phrases, "am I right or am I wrong" (repeated) as the chorus, expresses she's either confused or that she's trying to justify herself? She is angry during this track and has a twisted way of exposing it. The end of this track is very graceful and all instrumentally aspired.

For the sake of flying (track 3), Kate Kayaian plays her cello to set the story of sadness. John Harrison accompanies her playing with the anticipating violin. She is telling a story about three of a kind, all that had taken the same flight. The Dissolve track is more of a track to be called friendly with it's rhythmic harmony and is uplifting from the rest of the album.

The music involved in this track ("Was it you?") presents a cut off swing looped sample. It creates her message and she is able to repeat it sweetly. "A Time to be," track 6, is inching into optimism and has a happy motive, and an intense chorus. It is very interesting the way they have combined their styles together to create this questionable mood. A string quartet with DJ Vitamin only brings on more curiosity. I believe the last track is the most intellectually aspired with their conversing vocal samples and repeated phrases passing a flipped out message? This one has a bit of mixing with reversed intervals and hidden messages. On a whole, if you're the curious type or looking for a bit of different, this album will fill your mind. - Rachelle (Axis Music and Media Dispatch, Volume 11, Issue #1)
