Knowing Love by Its Absence - Wynne Alexander
a Review by Amy - Producer of Collected Sounds
"Wynne Alexander's style is very interesting. She's been called cabaret and I can see that surely, but there's something else here to that I can't put my finger on.
She uses strong heart pounding drumbeats and her deep sensuous voice, at times sounding like a carnival and at times an epic film score. Her lyrics are also very clever and well thought out.
"Controllez-Vous" is one of those songs that I found running through my head hours after I heard it.
"The Night We Danced" is a slow stylish tango with sultry vocals.
On "I Was Right - They Was Wrong" her piano-playing prowess really shows, a lovely ragtime type of song.
"Hot 'Cause You're Not" is a hilarious tribute to those who think they're hotties (which makes then "not"-ies in my book).
"I'm glad you think you're spicy
I'm glad you think you're icy
I'm glad you think you're cold
Cause you're not."
This is a great recording for those who are looking for something unique and stylish and at times humorous."
