    Street of The Love of Days is intimate and serene, sometimes pastoral, but there's nothing here that would make you miss the city, unless you hate bonfires and the crisp rustle of autumn leaves.

    Street of the Love of Days is a well-conceived, perfectly executed album that captivates you right from the beginning and doesn't let go until well after the album stops spinning.

    At times the group is just too determinedly subdued, but never when Ms. Nunez-Fernandez is upfront; in English or Spanish her breathy voice is an enticement.

    It's quiet but it gets your attention, surrounds you, and makes you feel a part of it all the way through.

    Despite being quite well-realized and able to sustain a single mood for so long, the album sounds increasingly like a missed opportunity as it progresses, with the two songwriters' work almost never achieving a real sense of cohesion.

    It's hard to get excited about any of the music on Street of the Love of Days-not because it isn't well made, but because there's no real hook to it.

    It's just that not all of Street of the Love of Days is as well-conceived and fully-fleshed out as these collaborative pieces are, with too many tracks either sounding too slight or ending up as incomplete compositions.

    There's isn't much in the way of clues as to why they wrote and recorded in secret, but this, their debut, sounds like an album that wasn't yet ready to be heard. It is beautifully crafted and rich in demure detail, but Street of the Love of Days is largely bereft of energy or direction.
