I really have no idea how to categorize this music. Listening to samples, Vanessa's music doesn't really hook me but this album has a special quality to it. If you have eclectic taste and embrace anything a bit different then this is definitely an album for you. A disc to be played on a warm summer's evening with the sun melting into the horizon.

Ten tracks based on semi-erotic feminist poetry may not sound like anyones cup of tea, but between Vanessa Daou's breathy vocals and Peter Daou's excellent keyboards, ZIPLESS represents a very mellow, easy listening album of jazzy electronica that deserves much more credit than it currently gets.
While the lyrical content dips occasionally into the explicit, nothing offensive is presented here. Instead, a gentle challenge is made to the listener's attention; but the eroticism that underlies many of these poems is perfectly complemented by the melodies, allowing the listener to appreciate Erica Jong's emotionally complex works for themselves, or to let the music flow uncomplicated by what is said.
The only flaw, ironically, is "Smoke", spoken by Jong herself, which is musically and lyrically wonderful, only to be deadened by the rather droning quality of the author's rendition. This aside, ZIPLESS has become one of my favourite albums and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

I am amazed that i have only just discovered this c.d, it is simpley awesome. Think slow, dubby, sexy trip hop with a hint of Madonnas erotica. This is music for making love to! very very moody.
