I feel like I'm on a beautiful forest while listening to this album, the production speaks for itself, Raveena's voice is beyond powerful, almost ethereal, the whole time I was emerged I felt like floating... very few albums make me feel that way, just exceptional.


Highly sensual, slow, spacious love jams from the Indian-American singer that could feel a bit invariant but ultimately takes us to her own tranquil universe. Gives me a lot of Corinne Bailey Rae's vibes for real.

A strong beginning. Outstanding: Still Dreaming


Raveena's debut certainly doesn't suck in terms of vocals as the singer provides a nice and sweet sound with them.
The lyrics are also pretty well-crafted with a lot of pain mixed with hope found in them.

Although the music offers a placid mood, I found myself thinking that it was not that special and rather dull. It's a little bit too redundant, basic and didn't kept my interest as I was listening.
