"OK, so Kahimi's vocals are breathy, underpowered, lacking in range and stylization, and so ethereal they are oftimes buried in the mix; her attempts at enunciating English words are feeble and scatter-shot, to say nothing of her French (in which she sings a couple songs)... but none of that really matters, because, all totaled, the way she-of-the-funky-green-hair sings is utterly sexy, disarming and relentlessly charming, possibly because of all its shortcomings. I shouldn't like this, but I do - a lot. This is pure bubble gum pop, but of the sincerest and most refreshing kind. The final song, "The Way You Close Your Eyes," seems like the perfect end-credits music to a teenage romance where everything unexpectedly works out well in the end - a reassuring message welcome in these bleak days. I have to say, of all the albums released in the 1990's, this is the one I would chose to play over and over again (though I'm not sure if that's more a compliment to Kahimi or a statement about the sad state of current music). This music makes me happy."
What do you get when you fall in love, Kahimi Karie!

"this is simply spellbinding. kahimi's soft voice works a world of sound with ecclectic (not trite) music. it revolves around a world occupied by serge gainsborogh, komida, space and gert wilden. kahimi's background in photography gives her the eye for music; the ear can help you create the music but the eye allows you to see where it's going, and that is her special place in music.....a visionary."

"I'm a bit late in discovering Kahimi Karie, I know.
But I must say this CD sound much fresher and innovative than many of the CD's I listened to this year.
In a funny way, it sound to me as a combination of Vanessa Paradis sing to the Beatles tunes...K.K., a Japanese native, Paris resident, sings in English-French with her thin, high whispering voice, which fit together perfectly to the melodies by her collaborators; usually Cornelius - her former boyfriend and Momus. The result is sensual, stylish, unique and pleasurable compilation."
