"It's about time Na Leo Pilimehana hit the mainland! These three talented women have captured the hearts of "Hawaiians" everywhere. Now it's time for others to open up their hearts of well. Strange though, that the group seems to have dropped "Pilimehana" from their name. Perhaps due to the risk of mispronounciation. An "Islander" myself, I was caught a bit off guard the other day while driving along when "Poetry Man" came across the radio waves. Could it be? I must say that the selection of songs on this CD seems to be the "best of the best." Their versions of some of the well known tunes, I think, are better than the original. One of the best songs is definitley "Flying with Angels." Your heart will just melt while your eyes fill with tears...Pop the CD in the stereo, kick back and relax to the group's smooth groves. It's so refreshing to see that Hawaii's secret talents are now venturing abroad. Maybe now I won't have to venture back home to pick up the their newest releases! All I have to say is CONGRATULATIONS!!!"
Thank goodness this CD is available!

"Na Leo has got to be one of the best vocal trios in the world! When I first heard "Candle in the Night", I've always thought they should go national. Now, with tunes like "Poetry Man" (a great version of a classic song) and "Flying with Angels", etc., the rest of the world can find out what we Hawaiian Islanders have known...These girls are FANTASTIC! One of the best comtemporary artists around. Listen and hear for yourself!"
