Lovéren

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Lovéren finds David Arkenstone working with Charlee Brooks, a singer/songwriter who not only takes a prominent position on the album's cover but helps give the record a focal point, keeping the record from drifting off into the ether and grounding it in recognizable human emotion.
