"The world influence definitely comes out as we make it through several styles. The production is fantastic, with beautiful strings, amazingly powerful guitars, crafty synths, and instruments of all sorts, both acoustic and electronic, all blended with exacting detail; a testament to the artistry of Romina’s songs.
With sounds reminiscent of Joan Baez, America, CSNY, Styx, Django, and even The Wailers, her songs have just the right amount of complexity to never be dull, but not so jazzy and “easy-listening” as to seem too musically intelligent. The mood is relaxed, in places and longing in others, satisfied and happy, seldom sad. She writes about serious topics and light-hearted fun and keeps the record moving like a small party that starts at a nice dinner with friends and progresses to a romp on the beach with mojitos and a bon-fire." - C Bret Campbell
