"Angels Near" is like a poker game with Stevie Nicks portrayed as the dealer, Tori Amos laying down a royal flush and Evanescence's Amy Lee folding. It's a dark collection of temperamental and intimate songs that flirt with tragic and haunting melodies. Alice Marie uses stretched out vocals to pierce through the lyrics, adding an eerie tone to the mood of the release. The title song, "Angels Near," a song about personal bouts of pain and fear, includes an unexpected change of emotion with a "carnival" flashback of sorts complete with roller coasters and carnival music. It's a very modern, dark outlook on the singer-songwriter's life displayed collectively in ten tracks of deep, poet lyrics. "Angels Near" is packed full of Alice Marie's raw, edgy talent. It's one beautiful song after another complete with a stunning voice sure to please any music fan.

"Angels Near" almost has an 80s new wave sound. I especially like the carnival sound in the middle.
"I Was Seven" is downright scary as she pleads with her imaginary friend taken from books to save her from...well...just listen. At times this song reminds me of early Tori Amos.
This is a good solid recording from an artist who is not mainstream sounding and has a lot to say.
Mystical and temperamental.
Groundbreaking and soul-shaking.
Or more to the point, brilliant.
