    The depth of The Colorist’s percussive range is transformative, bringing explicit form to the simple expression of romantic excitement in “Jungle Drum”, and rendering the enchantment of the new song “When We Dance.”

    The Colourist & Emiliana Torrini draws on the singer's back catalogue, infusing it with added warmth, texture and elegance. [Jan 2017, p.31]

    The orchestra certainly elevates some aspects of her songs, but cannot replace the powerful solitude of Torrini’s solo recordings.

    Their self-described "acoustic-live remix" can be a little tentative at times. Nevertheless, it's a worthy showcase for Torrini's excellent body of work and achieves a level of quality that many live recordings fail to reach.

    Rousing, otherworldly, outlandish. [Jan 2017, p.104]

    There are times when it can feel a little festival theatre tent. Even so, the musical chemistry is clear, and at best, captivating. [Feb 2017, p.112]
