Lynda Arnold is Divasonic and this is her second album of New Age-flavored electronic music. She writes and plays much of the music here. "Summertime" is
loosely based on the Gershwin song, the melody is in there somewhere but it sounds like a jam inspired by it rather than a straight cover.
"Tick Tick Boom" takes Arnold's jazz influences and makes them more obvious. It's got a funky feel that's well handled. "Processing..Luv" is calm and yet
has a pretty insistent beat to use. Arnold sings, which she should do more often, her voice is lovely. "Changing Wind" sees Arnold play to her strengths and
create an atmospheric track that has some of Tori Amos' styling.
This is a relaxing and rewarding album.
