    Anika is a bold, often fearless debut, and even if it's occasionally an acquired taste, it doesn't hedge its bets.
  2. Feb 10, 2011
    Full of lyrical and musical contradictions, such as the exhortation to 'join the revolution' in Yang Yang, it isn't exactly rabble rousing - but has a strange allure nonetheless.

    Her voice is faltering and off-key, but dogged. The grooves are minimal, with the bass pushed way up front, and the sound is fresh and lumpy: the songs get your attention; they've got texture.

    Anika is shortsighted in the best way: it's a tribute, an exercise, the charming kind.
  5. Feb 23, 2011
    Anika was apparently recorded in a short time, and it's hard not to wish it felt at once more urgent and more cohesive.
  6. Feb 10, 2011
    A mighty attempt at thinking outside the box, ultimately Anika is simply an attempt at sound and fury, signifying nothing.
