Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ELISABETH KONTOMANOU

Back to My Groove

2008-04-25

This is a very powerful, soulful album. Rich and developed, Elisabeth Kontomanou belts out a very personal and retrospective album. Sassy and smart, Kontomanou has a stick-it-in-yer-face-and-listen-hear-boy delivery that packs a filthy little punch. Her backing orchestra is tight and just as outfront as Kontomanou, especially during the musings of the 8-minute-mural "Black Angels." Diva describes this one to a tee.-- Daniel Graeber
