Rating: 8 For me, not the best she has done since she has gone solo but without doubt a very great effort by Anneke. Her voice remains extraordinary and full of groove and emotion!

  Anneke on MS? Mmmh...
Whatever, this album is really good, imo her best and most of all a great step up from that stupid work "In Your Room". Simple yet solid pop-rock/alt-rock with energizing tunes. And by the way, she's adorable as ever...

7,5/10

She's here for her legacy I guess, Mandylion is #1 of the "Gothic Metal" top 200 as I'm writing these lines...

  I'm curious about this one, have to check it out.

Rating: 7 Its alright. A mixture of everything. Pop, rock, alt. "Circles" is my favorite of this.

You're right, and "legacy" is a good way to put it. This solo project is not metal but she is still very much of interest to and involved in the metal community (still performing and recording as a guest artist with metal bands and vice versa).

Excellent, fun piece of music

Rating: 8 Nice album. First few songs are especially good. And Anneke's vocals don't get worse with age - her voice is still as strong and emotional as ever.
