Title - 'The Crush'
Artist - Anomie Belle

URB Magazine has called her music “sultry, smoky, seductive, sexy and dark.” Performer Magazine called her songs “beautiful symphonies,” “melancholy with sensual beats, lush strings and layered vocals.”

Innocent Words magazine went as far as to call Anomie Belle “a musical mastermind.”

But, however you take her music onboard, Anomie Belle's sound is a mix of electronic and organic instrumentation, fiercely sensual vocals, and thickly layered, ethereal soundscapes.

With twelve songs oozing with sultry vocals and melodies that will make your heart melt, we begin the musical journey with the ethereal 'Electric Lullaby.' A song that ensures you either welcome her distinctive Macy Gray tone or back well away - although she hopes you stay tuned, of course - it is followed by 'Inky Drips' and 'Machine,' featuring rap from Mr Lif.

With each song telling a sensual tale that leaves you anticipating the next chapter, the guitar-led 'It's A Crush' comes forth, which is followed by both 'Mosquito In The Closet' and 'Bodies Offering.' One of the best tracks on the album, for my money, comes next in the form of the subtle, quietly-sung 'Picture Perfect' (featuring Jon Auer).

Then we get the flowing 'Lost Horizon,' before 'Privilege,' featuring Anna-Lynne Williams comes forth. With 'On TV,' 'Lavender Days' and the sonically charged 'Phantom' all bringing the album to a close, I have to say that if you love the aforementioned Macy Gray sprinkled with some Kate Bush, then this is the CD for you - otherwise, well, it's simply too repetitive in lyrical nature to please the innocent bystander.
