Comments:

This is a nicely produced five-song ep. "I'd Fall in Love With You Again" is a mellow, sweet tune with some nice harmonies between Lara Halidae and John Bolzenius. "Tell Me Why" is a little livelier, with a country-pop lilting energy. "Virginia" is more sparse and folk-country sounding with a very sweet, uplifting chorus. "Sweet Emotion" is a pop-py love song that will charm mainstream radio fans. "Candy" is a lilting bright pop song. This ep is ear-candy for mainstream pop fans from the easy-on-the-ears songwriting and production to Lara Halidae's sweet, smooth vocals. If you're looking for something adventurous I don't recommend this, but if you want something light, sweet, and upbeat this may well be exactly what you're looking for. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
