Her voice is captivating and moving
The music stirs the soul and makes you feel every word. Her lyrics are awesome and the music fits every lyric. I love listening to the CD over and over

Funky ass beats

Bluesbunny

Atmospheric urban angst
Natalie Barry's solo project Enjae is next into the Bluesbunny CD player, and with the gloomy opening chords of "Metropolis", I've got an uneasy feeling that we might be straying into rap territory.

The highlight of this album is, for this Bluesbunny anyway, "Nice Fit", starting with some rather camp impersonations of Ursula Andress and Sean Connery (aka King Sean the First of Scotland) from the movie Dr No. Still, it saves on the copyright fee of using the real sample. A driving bass line underpins a hypnotic two chord tune sprinkled with more 007 impersonations and shows a chink of humour in the otherwise urban jungle feel of this album. A break of sixties' go-go sounding guitar lightens the feel of this track. Another stand-out track is "Slow Burn". With its smoky jazz club vibe, this is a deeply sensual wee number. Breathy vocal lines have sinuous saxophone phrases weaved around them, perfect music as background to what a Bluesbunny enjoys most - after carrots, of course!

A soulful and jazz influenced take on trip-hop, Enjea is not as grand and cinematic as some of the exponents of the style, and seems to prefer to dwell on urban angst and 21st century tension. Mainly based on minimal bass and drum arrangements, augmented at points with guitar and keyboards and including some "urban commentary" style raps, Enjea's music is dark but the arrangements can be a little repetitive. During the 42 minute of this album there is little variation in tempo, and the listener (me) would have appreciated a bit more sonic flavouring and more lighter moments such as "Nice Fit", even if "Slow Burn" defiantly gets a Bluesbunny in the mood.

Great moving music. Each track has a voice all it's own while still adding to a whole picture of an emotion, which is rare.

Standout tracks: Slow Burn, Nice Fit, Paper FLowers and I Miss You are all songs that will get heavy rotation in your CD player.

As a filmmaker and a writer the songs lend themselves wonderfully to film and paint pictures with the words and relentless beats.

Mike

Wow..a great vocalist, meaningful lyrics and music with depth
I really enjoy this CD and am suprised that I like every song on the album. I honestly can't remember the last time I said that about a CD. I think it will only be a matter of time until Enjae is mainstream.

Sandy

Hot hot heat!!
This CD is the best ten bucks I have spent in a long time. I agree with Mike. I like every song!! Enjae is hot!

Matt

Wow!
Very nice! Down-tempo/trip hop at it's finest! An amazing album.

John Book, Music For America

Addictive music for those who have had it missing in their lives
The description of this CD went like this:

Gritty sometimes lo-fi, down-tempo music with sexy smokey female vocals that leaves the listener mesmerized. Gritty yes, but this is far from lo-fi, although I think the intention was to suggest that they will get you into a mode similar to what Portishead's music does to your skull. There's nothing lo-fi on this self-titled CD from Enjae, which is the vehicle for vocalist Natalie Barry. One can easily hear the Portishead influence, but there's also a bit of Supreme Beings Of Leisure in the way Barry's voice goes from powerful and strong to delicate and ethereal, mixed in with beats from the vaults of the good cratedigger and real instrumentation from a wide range of musicians (including JK Northrup, Kimber Hone, and Flamp Sorvari.

You do hear "sexy smokey vocals" but don't expect luxurious tales from a chanteuse. Instead you hear tales of being lost, going nowhere, and questioning the allure of being sinister. In "Slow Burn", where Barry's voice sounds very similar to Alice Temple's performance in UNKLE's "Bloodstain", you almost feel as if you are right next to her hearing sing word for word, which at times comes off as one-part diary, one-part confessional. It's intimate in the sense that you feel you get a sense of what she's singing about, and when the urge to resist comes in the mind, you realize that you can't. It's seductive and eerie at the same time, and when you hear a countermelody that may offer a hint of optimism, Barry is slowly crawling up your spine as the spider that pops up in one of her songs. She will slowly crawl into your consciousness if you let her, and once the spider is in, good luck in going cold turkey.

Really good music..
Went through alot of pages and i dont know how i got to trip hop not really my thing meant to find hip hop/rap. But this is some good music. Wish i can work with her. Good luck on your music adventure

Ben Hudgins

On the down low
This is premium down tempo. If you're even remotely a fan of Portishead, Massive Attack, Supreme Beings of Leisure, and the like, you have to pick this up. Delicate (yet powerful) vocals and smokey, funky instrumentation. And headnods aplenty. Fine, fine trip hop.
