4 stars This album is an absolute blast! Labeled as crossover, but this isn't pop based to my ears. It has a lot more in common with jazz, in my opinion. Moorea Dickason can flat out sing and she often employs a style that crams a thousand words into a single musical phrase, each word a different note. She can cover a lot of ground from delicate and beautiful to raging, vocal chord splitting power. She is fantastic and the melodies are always captivating. Coupled with intelligent lyrics, Moorea's vocals are a definite strength of the band.

Speaking of the band...every player is just fantastic. The performances are tight, the arrangements sophisticated, and they play off the vocals in a delightful manner. There aren't a lot of solos per se, but many of the arrangements have the band flying, so there is plenty to impress.

If you like shorter, song based yet complex music, I cannot recommend this band enough. This is an excellent debut and I can't wait to hear the next one.

Tull Tales | 4/5 |
