"Refreshing neo-soul songstress delivers an eclectic and well polished debut platter.The first half gives us endearingly bold material filled with lush arrangements-peppered with retro 80's styled tough beats and funky upbeat jams with crazy chord sequences that Aisling navigates vocally with great poise,great bvs, and immense musical skill. The second half sees her chill a bit and is undeniably more dazzling as her sense of craft comes out even further." Blues & Soul Magazine *****
