The album shows off Lisa Nilsson's voice quite well in a sort of "soft soul", but the music is pretty awful: Lots of phrases and drum machines (I hope!) and a feeling of (unintentional) disorganization. The last two tracks (where they cut out the drum machines) are pretty good. (

Thanks to Leon van Stuivenberg for work on this entry.
