We’re hearing a bit of SZA in Chesea J’s voice, which basks in heavy reverb on the seductive, atmospheric “Moon Spirit,” whose dreamy poetic pace and smooth guitar licks support Chelsea’s nice, potentially rangey voice. A brighter mood, but with an equally artful hand on the production effects, adorns “Dinner at Murphy’s.” Like her other tunes, we’re impressed by its production, which captures and places the artist’s voice perfectly in the mix so that every word is crisp and clear. Finally, “BYOB” opens with low-tone keyboards, and is at first nearly a cappella, until the artist delivers rap/rhythmic bars with attitude. While we feel she’s a better singer than a rapper, we like the song’s bridge, which reminds us of Mary J. Blige.
