We had another great album review in Riffi!
Here's a short translation in English:
Such a nice release! SaraLee (Saara Lehtomäki) and her band serve an album full of traditional-aware rhythm and blues with voodoo rhythms.
Songs in the “Queen of Your Heart“ album create a personal and diverse entity. That is the strength of this record: at no point listener gets a feeling that same composition is played again and again.
The band works also well. Rhythm section Kimmo Salminen (drums) and Jari Lehtomäki (double bass) plays with good swing throughout the record. Guitarist Markus Tiiro is technically skillful guitarist who plays with good taste and with really handsome sound regardless whether the song is rhythm ‘n’ blues or swing. SaraLee sings well and expressively. Also backing vocals, to which the whole band contributes, are working.
Queen of Your Heart works well also what comes to recording and mixing. Juha Takanen is responsible for that. General sound of the record respects the style of this musical genre however it doesn’t sound artificially old.
