    As singularly off-kilter as the time-travelling she seemingly blew in on us. [Mar 2020, p.114]

    It’s packed with humour, drama, anger and sadness, all brought together by ALA.NI’s artistic direction. ACCA is a one-woman show that will have you glued to your seat – your toilet break will just have to wait.

    There's a sublimely soulful central vocal melody underpinning songs such as "Papa," "VanP" and "Differently," as patchworks of vocal loops create bewitching organic grooves. The showtune jazz and circus-y, Tom Waits-ish vibes elsewhere are also highly intriguing. [Feb 2020, p.23]

    ACCA is showy, drama-dripped and ultimately rewarding. It demands a lot from the listener, but more music these days probably should.

    It’s undeniably interesting, but here’s hoping the clever USP doesn’t lessen the record’s staying power.

    It does feel like she is yet to fully reach the potential of her unique style and we are perhaps still awaiting something truly impressive that "All the Things" hints at. However, it's certainly very interesting listening to her sonic journey on the way towards that goal.

    The album is diverse: lovers rock meets gospel hymnals and Parisian waltz-dirges. [Feb 2020, p.94]
