Flying Away

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
The track "Underwater Love," used for a Levi's commercial earlier in 1997, is just one of the pleasing trip-hop and mild breakbeat tracks on Smoke City's debut album; other songs, like "Numbers" and "Dark Walk" are just as strong, and the alternately rough-hewn and sultry vocals of Nina Miranda in French and Portuguese as well as English definitely add to the proceedings. All in all, the album is a bit of a surprise considering that the group was completely unknown before gaining success on British TV.
