General comments:

On CD Baby they describe themselves as PJ Harvey meets the Doors, on the CD real raw as "acid pop," and on their on their website as "fuses pop vocalizing by NooR with the ambient chorus of string and percussive textures to arrive before the door of Dreaming." Put all these together and you can get an idea of their sound. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)

Comments:

For a dream album this is quite edgy—or is it that for an edgy album this is quite dreamy? So difficult to say. Full of interesting textures, and NooR's lovely, tough vocals, this album is an interesting journey, and highly recommended to anyone who likes an edgy ambience or ambient edginess, acid pop, or an album that creates a mood of disconcerting dreaminess. Very intriguing. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
