"The combination on Carmen Consoli's breathy voice and the hard rock in back of it makes a startling contrast in styles. One of the best voices, the hard rock/punky style is stunning. The sonics are sharp and clear. I happen to like the Italian she sings in. I don't understand it, but every time I get one of these world discs, the voice is like another instrument to me. I don't have to understand it, I hear it. It's part of the instrumentals. This is a very sexy style of music. Lot's of bass. I like that. Very 21st century. If you like hard, straight ahead loud rock, with a very soft, but, commanding style, this is your disc."

"This is a really good disc. Consoli has a really good voice, first of all. It's breathy and powerful. She's able to do that. The songs are basically straight rock with a little punk overtone. There are many slow songs on this. All these songs, break into something else as they go along. The songs are constructed like soft and loud. Like prog-metal. If you've ever listened to Tool, this is what this sounds like in the structure of the song. It is straight rock, soft, loud technique. Her voice goes from breathy to shrieky. She does both really well. Breathy sexy and real screaming shrieky. The singing is in Italian, wich is a very passionate language. I like world music sung in the language of the countryl. World music sung in English never seems to have the impact on me. I mean, why listen to an Italian disc without it sung in Italian. Very interesting listen, I'm glad I bought it."
