We’re impressed by this Dallas artist’s jazzy, sultry voice, one that works its impressive range on material such as “Lost Without You” where, amid an arrangement of subdued instrumentals, Reilly‘s voice emits an array of effective attitudes. What’s most interesting, though, is how the song suddenly shifts, cuts off at half-speed, for an unusually jazzy break. So unexpected, yet so effective. Our favorite is “One Chance,” where the artist sings amid celestial reverb while plucked violins and cellos do their thing. Reilly‘s only weakness, we feel (and it’s on full display in “Avalanche”), is her tendency to mumble and slur.
