Avis sur l’album

Righteous lyrics, strong pop hooks, polished studio technique, and impassioned vocals — that's four for four, a winning percentage in anyone's game. For Sheila Nicholls these elements conspire to turn Wake into a winner. While her sermonizing can border on cliché ("Love is what we came here for") or get a little annoying ("Do you have purpose, or are you just paying off mortgage?"), there's no denying the conviction that she pours into it or the creativity with which she packages her thoughts.
