This review is from: SLEEPING PILLS AND LULLABIES (Audio CD)
Received this album in the post today and I have not stopped listening to it. The music is so beautiful and at times can only be described as haunting and mysterious.

Only just recently discovered Anne Marie through Mostly Autumn (saw them recently and she stole the show) and Panic Room and this album is clearly another wonderful production from two very talented individuals. GREAT CD ....go buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Delight, 12 Jun. 2013
This review is from: SLEEPING PILLS AND LULLABIES (Audio CD)
Anne Marie Helder and Jonathan Edwards of the brilliant Panic Room have conjured up this Sheer Delight of an album. The Duo format gives the songs so much room, with Anne Marie's ever versatile haunting voice blending perfectly with Jon's crystalline but ever subtle piano work. The arrangements are beautiful , benefitting in particular from the use of the string quartet in many songs. There's a lot of thought provoking lyrics but the songs encompass a wide range of moods. For me the stand out so far is Rise Up featuring, to my mind, Anne Marie's greatest recorded vocal yet. But really this is An Album in the best sense, a complete piece of work that will appeal to a wide range of Music Lovers. Don't hesitate......

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album!!!, 10 Jun. 2013
This review is from: SLEEPING PILLS AND LULLABIES (Audio CD)
Multi-instrumentalists Anne-Marie Helder and Jonathan Edwards created "Sleeping Pills and Lullabies". This album is composed of eleven stripped down tunes performed by Anne-Marie and Jon and supported by a small string section (ten original songs and a cover of "The Book Of Love").

Anne-Marie`s exquisite vocals, Jonathan's mastery of the piano, the delightful string section, Anne-Marie`s flute playing...
A real gem!

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST RELEASE THIS YEAR, 19 Jun. 2013
This review is from: SLEEPING PILLS AND LULLABIES (Audio CD)
OK, first of all I admit that I'm a huge fan of Anne-Marie Helder. I've followed her career from Karnataka to Panic Room, including her work with Mostly Autumn and others. She is hugely talented - a great voice and multi-instrumentalist. Jon tends to be less in the spotlight, but his keyboards with Panic Room really help shape their distinctve sound. Panic Room are one of my all time favourite bands.

It was therefore with some excitement that I awaited the arrival of their new acoustic side project, Luna Rosas, and I was not disappointed. Here is a collection of 11 spine-tingling songs. Anne-Marie's delicate, emotive vocals blend perfectly with Jon's expressive piano playing. In addition they have employed sparing amounts other other instruments, including guitar, flute, strings and even tuned wine glasses! The music is very hard to classify, but the overall effect is an extremely beautiful and haunting album. It's hardly been out of the CD player since it was delivered.

Buy this album you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luna Rossa - Sleeping Pills and Lullabies - no sleeping listening to this, 17 Jun. 2013
This review is from: SLEEPING PILLS AND LULLABIES (Audio CD)
This is a really wonderful collection of songs from two very talented musicians from the Panic Room band. The title suggests you might fall asleep listening to it, but far from it, as each track is just too good to miss and will keep you wide awake. particularly because you'll want to keep on playing it again and again. The combination of Anne-Marie Helder's beautiful voice and all manner of instruments played by both her and Jonathan Edwards is perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful Music By Great Artists, 14 Jun. 2013
This review is from: SLEEPING PILLS AND LULLABIES (Audio CD)
Sleeping Pills and Lullabies is a superb first outing as a duo for the wonderful Anne-Marie Helder and Jonathan Edwards from Panic Room. I truly love this album, which is beautifully crafted, delicate and soulful work. Anyone familiar with Anne-Marie's music will expect the highest vocal quality and her performances throughout provide a stunningly strong core around which gorgeous, acoustic instrumental textures have been layered. Sleeping Pills and Lullabies provides magnificently moving and tender music and like all great stuff, the rewards grow and grow with repeated listening. This isn't just Panic Room unplugged; Luna Rossa have their own distinct feel but retain all of the key elements that make Panic Room so great: fantastic musicianship and songwriting and richly emotive singing and playing straight from the heart.
