Comments:

Alexandra Day's music is delivered with delicacy and passion. Her warm vocals suit these fascinating songs well. "Prophet" makes for a strong opener, with poetic and thoughtful lyrics. "Take it easy" has soulful vocals and contemplative lyrics that work well with the calm melody. "Virginia" is a reflective song about growing up and it has a fluid melody that works well. "Chemicals in my brain" is a humorous song about love that Day makes resonate. Her album's a wonderful listen. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
