"You don't get signed to a major international label and flown halfway around the world to record your debut album with a great producer Victor Van Vugt (Beth Orton, PJ Harvey etc.) if you don't have great talent and great talent is something that Anika Moa has in abundance. The debut album Thinking Room has already been Number One in her native New Zealand and her debut single Youthful has been a big hit in Australia too.So who is Anika Moa? Apparently she's a twenty one year old half Maori singer songwriter from New Zealand with a number one album called "Thinking Room"! What talent and maturity at such a tender age. Her album has only just become available outside of the southern hemisphere but I was lucky enough to have been able to import a copy several months ago and well worthwhile it was too. My favourite tracks so far are "Youthful" and "Mother" (written about her own mother apparently), as well as "Falling In Love Again" which is included on the Julia Roberts/John Cusack/Catherine Zeta Jones movie America's Sweethearts (and is apparently about returning to New Zealand). What a beautiful song. I had to buy the album just to hear that one song again. Big things are expected of this young girl and I for one hope she achieves them!"
Damn good tunes from a great Kiwi chick!

"Amazing debut album from New Zealand's new Singer/Songwriter Queen. Highlights of the album are "Flowers for you", and "Harry and Leena's song". As a New Zealand artist Anika has been compared to Bic Runga (Drive/Beautiful Collision) who appeared on the American Pie Soundtrack, but Anika can stand proudly alone and bask in her own talent. Thinking Room meanders between heartfelt Love-type songs and deep almost dark songs that make you want to sob, but in a good way. She's even better to see in person, so if you love this come to N.Z. for a taste of Anika playing in her barefeet. This Album features songs too good for radio, buy it and put it on heavy-rotation at your Whare. Kia Ora Anika."

"I first heard of anika moa in a record store in Christchurch 5 years ago now and had no idea who she was. After an enquiry to the record store clerk I quickly learned anika was a 21yo local singer/ songwriter whom the new zealand locals were very fond and proud of. I took this CD home as a souvenier and have listened to it and appreciated it for a long time now.
New Zealands answer to Jewel, the songs warm to you very quickly and if you are the sort of person that can recognise talent and give credit where credit is due, you will be telling all your friends about anika in no time.
I have played this album to many people with wide ranges in musical tastes and I can honestly say they were all impressed and asking me where I bought it. Some CD's are worth taking a chance on and owning in your collection... This is one of them.
Each song calls out to you, but the best tracks are Holding Me High, Falling In Love Again, Good In My Head and My Son."
