Autumn Sun
My youth stood by the harbor Her hands set in a wave Like no more evening and day Now I see the beauty I failed to see when she was me Life undress... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Every track gives you something new and exciting, while holding tightly on to Emilíana’s flawless voice and melodies.

    Much of the album mediates on Torrini's new status as a mother but does so through some intensely poetic lyrics. [Oct 2013, p.75]

    Tookah is a frustrating album because there are a couple examples of something fantastic happening in Torrini’s musical mind but it doesn’t quite deliver in the end.

    Torrini and collaborator Dan Carey envisioned the record as a chance to explore the possibilities of the studio, and it does sound lovely, in a New Age kind of way. It seems, however, that this has come at the expense of strong songwriting.
