Madelynn Rae's sophomore effort shows a good progression of skills versus her self-titled debut. All three songs on this set show some delightful arrangements coupled with a confident phrasing from the audience. The entire package seems less produced than the original and benefits from the creativity behind the mic, as well as the boards.
While I miss the wistfulness of a tune like 'City of Scars', the tunes here easily recall the 60s pop of Nancy Sinatra or the 80s house/club bands like Dee-Lite. This is great stuff to be enjoyed while cruising on a sunny day with the top down. With Amy Lee seemingly abandoning the keyboards with Evanescense's latest album, there's a void that I think Ms. Rae could easily slip into.
