General comments:

Marina Belica's solo stuff is atmospheric and pretty. (

She used to sing and play keyboards for October Project. I bought her EP-CD a while ago. It's pretty good. She sings one of October Project's songs, "Return to Me". Still, not October Project. (

Marina Belica's music is ethereal, but has earthy qualities as well. Her crystalline voice suits the music well.
     The remake of October Project's "Return to Me" could bring tears to anyone's eyes. The jazzy "Come with Me" is simply stunning.
     The traditional "O Come, Come Emmanuel" gets a lovely arrangement.
     A very nice ep. (
