The best for long, long years
Tanita has been always producing good records, some of them great (debut Ancient Heart or 2012 Can’t Go Back) but this one is exceptional, exceptionally amazing, to be precise. Each and every song is thrilling (first single Glass Love Train being my least favorite to be honest), they are jazzy, classy, clever, modern and retro at the same time. It takes big talent to write, play and sign songs like these. I hope Tanita will bring more of at least similar level. Thank you TT.
Dynamic, dramatic and dark
Loving this new album. Right from the first notes of the hypotonic and floating Glass Love Train, through the dark drama of Closer to the People and Gris Gris Tales, the soulful, swinging and spirited Night is a Bird, to the pensive and comforting My Enemy. Tanita and her talented band take you on a soulful, bouncing and groove filled journey of all things that are good about contemporary music, and achieve this in a nifty 36 minutes. We thought she had returned to form with 2012's Can't Go Back. She did, but now she's hit new form altogether. Well done Tanita and gang.
It’s so refreshing to hear someone who wears clothes when they sing and doesn’t sound like a chipmunk on helium. I love all her albums because she’s brilliant at what she does, that’s not copying someone else. Keep it up Tanita. I think the first track is brill Albert Spacer.
