Review:« Souad Massi has been compared with Tracy Chapman, though it is years since Chapman has written melodies as memorable as these. » Financial Times « She is wonderful and brought a tear to many people's eyes with her performance on « Later » Mark Cooper « Souad’s music defly fuses North African traditions with folk, jazz, and rock accents. While she’s often compared to Tracy Chapman, her musical sophistication and clear and intense vocal style make Joni Mitchell a more telling reference. An outstanding debut » Observer « One of the finest new artists of the year…her debut album is remarkable both for her cool, sad edged vocals and for the variety of her highly accessible, tuneful, self composed songs…She is charming, clever and deserves to be a major international star… Guardian « Simply on of the albums of the year . » Charlie Gillett
