Excellent debut from an artist who has the full kit of talents: words, music, voice and guitar. Grabs you and keeps you from the first bar. fyi, though, iTunes has swapped tracks 8 & 9.

An addictive album with poignant lyrics and thoughtful songs

I fell in love with this album and with Anais after listening to this album a few times.
