Who can say what the next wave will be? Whatever it may be, albums like this one will never go out of style. AZITA, formerly known for her post-punk deconstructions in Scissor Girls and Bride of No-No, goes all classic rock on Enantiodromia. Displaying a true proclivity for jazzy keyboard licks and quasi-classical compositions, Azita knocks out pop tunes that will remind some of Rikki Lee Jones, Laura Nyro, Joy of Cooking, Steely Dan and Essra Mohawk! A super-tite rhythm section of John McEntire on drums and Matt Lux on bass consolidates this appeal with judicious, delicious minimalism - like all the best hits of R-n-B! Fronting their sleek shows of musical virtuoisity with acid-tongued drooling, Azita establishes her personality - all original, all the way, take it or leave it. This ain't no retro record. Expression is the thing - and it's there in spades on Entantiodromia, from the words and music to the speed-crazed sleevenote to the album's overarcing artiness. A great pop album from an unlikely quarter! Fans of diverse, eclectic, informed pop music should try this for something even more different.

This cd is groundbreaking because it documents a a female vocalist experimenting with a vocal style unlike anything i have heard. I emphasize the word experimenting because it is true. Her vocals can sometimes take you to an uncomfortable place. I guess like being a vegetarian and for a second tasting a piece of meat that got on your slice of pizza. but her voice echoes in female tones with chris cornell like power. Her uniqueness deserve ears, not description.
Right now i am listening to track four. I hear some of the finest piano i have heard from any artist;elton to billy joel to ben folds. she may give tori a run for her money. some things it reminds me of are rachmaninov, stevie wonder and the the kind of shifts in chaos that bring cool breezes to our sweaty faces. but yes, other tracks on this cd are overproduced and simplified.
I recommend this cd. it is peppered with fantastic vocal sounds and choppy hushing piano vibrations and really neat lyrics. and that is not to mention the things that you may enjoy from it. This artist will do special things in her future. im glad i have her first solo cd. sincere peace to you.

I first got into Azita when i heard Life on the Fly. It is like Carol King meets Steely Dan meets that gas huffing chick you befriend,

This album is good, but not quite up there with that gem: for whatever reason, she has toned the music down, and the tracks here don't have that flying magic drive.

You can't blame this genius for wanting to make more nuanced music, and yes; all the chords and instrumental dynamics make it all work here. But this album could use a cooker or two to bring this simmering album on home
