Agnés Milewski
Pretty Boys and Ugly Girls
Rhythm and Poetry

Agnés Milewski plays the piano and sings lovely songs on her debut album. She's got similarities with other singers playing the piano, most notably Tori Amos, but she's her own woman.

"Perfect Blue Sky" has suitably quirky lyrics and a joker about Britney Spears. "She Said" sees Milewski at her best, playing her piano alongside some nicely placed strings. The song's folksy feel suits it well and helps it stand out. "Steal away my autumn" is one of the most Amos-like moments, dramatic piano chords crashing into the melody. "Ready to take off" ends the album on a good note, a simple ballad with some gorgeous singing. It's a good debut and one that's worth hearing.
