Nesrin Sen
Type Nesrin Sen
Nesrin Productions

There's something of Heather Nova's vocal purity in Nesrin Sen's appealing voice. She writes delicate, slightly jazzy songs on this debut. "Ocean" has typically poetic lyircs and a sweetly orchestrated melody. The mysteriously hushed "Star 10" has some gorgeous singing. Its gentle pace allows it space to grow.

"Love is like Fire" is the most jazz-tinged, blue-tinted song on this album. Sen uses her flexible, angelic voice to its fullest and the song becomes her.

"Out of the Clouds" raises the tempo a little and allows Sen's feistier side some room with good results. This album is a wonderful thing.
