Ann Scott
Raghouse Records

Ann Scott has an exciting sound on this, her third album to date. She has a sweet voice and uses it very well. "Killerman" is an atmospheric, slightly eerie song where Scott's voice meshes well with the backing. "Universe" is a soft yet urgent song that allows Scott to weave her magic against a lovely tune. She has some of Hope Sandoval's ethereal tone here. "Under the Sun" is a dreamy song that Scott handles with her usual finesse. It's got an insistent beat and that allows it more pace.

"All Eternity" has a Cocteau Twins-like circular melody but with comprehensible lyrics. This musical swoon is similar to other tracks on this magical album. It's a quiet treasure to unearth.
