US - Florida - Full Moon 101 - 12/26/04
Ron and Lisa Potter make up Juniper, an original pop group with a nice line in catchy tunes.
The title track sees them collaborate with rapper IKON with stunning results.
Lisa Potter's smooth vocals and the fluid melody provides a nice contrast to IKON's gruff
delivery. "Believe" is a soulful song with a modern feel. There's a slight resemblance to Garbage
but Lisa is a less icy singer than Shirley Manson.
"Hurt" is a sweet little ballad with a delightful melody and an insightful lyric. IKON returns
for "Allegiance" and gives a lively performance. "Thornless Roses" is a marvelous, textured song.
This is a strong and assured debut by a talented group.
