Comments:

This is a strange record and it's hard to pinpoint what it's really like. Teper mixes her own songs with traditional Hebrew hymns with equal conviction.
     Her singing is soft but still forceful and the band creates a unique sound. "Gonna" sounds very loungey, but the vocal sets it apart. Teper recalls Mary Margaret O'Hara in her jazz mode. The title track sees her morphing into a Tom Waits style and it works well.
     Ronley Teper's a true original. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)

Comments:

Ronley Teper continues on her path with an extraordinary new record. She mixes her own songs with covers of "What a wonderful world" and Neil Young's "Only love can break your heart". Her muse seems alive and well, and her vocal stretches and bends like it did on her debut. She's managed to retain her individual approach and add some cool new touches. "Coffee" is short but sweet and recalls Mary Margaret O'Hara. "Mr Pigeon" is whimsical as can be and has a weird charm all its own. Teper's album's a treasure and her talent shines on all the tracks.
