"Slow & Steady Seduction, Phase II" delivers, but with some issues. It is best to skip past the first few tunes. The top of this album sounds too corporate radio friendly. Some of Anya's charm is washed out when appealing to such mainstream sensibilities. (I will admit that 'Cut it Out' has actually grown on me.) The album finally fires on all pistons with 'Drop Dead Blues.' From here on out, the album returns to Anya bliss. The rest of the album enjoys that time-tested brand of clever girliness. The sound generally ranges from rock to indie folk. 'Vertigo' is one of the highlights. Not replicating her previous work, this material is more produced. Leaning away from indie folk, this new direction gives "Slow & Steady Seduction" a more commercial presentation. At times this new production employs electric guitars, large scale vocal dubbing and a philharmonic orchestra. The spectacular oddity here is 'Águas de Março.' As sang by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Elis Regina, I have long been enchanted by the Bossa Nova classic. Anya's rendition is pure ear candy. Comparatively, these songs are good but not as strong as those on her debut. The humor isn't quite as funny, the observations aren't quite as poignant and the melodies aren't as compelling. Length is another issue with this sophomore album. Even before removing the first few songs, the total length is only 35 minutes. Should you buy "Slow & Steady Seduction?" Coming from somebody who's been listening to Anya since the "Exercises in Racketeering" EP was first released, yes. "Slow & Steady Seduction, Phase II" is a good album, but if you're new to Anya Marina, start with "Miss Halfway."

I first got into Anya's music after hearing 'Believe me I believe' recommended from Pandora..... and I was hooked!! Then after researching online, realized I had unknowingly heard her music on many early Grey's Anatomy episodes. I own both Slow and Steady seduction, and Felony Flats, and love them both. Her voice is so unique, and her style of music is different than anything else out there you will find.

I'll admit I had never heard of Anya Marina before she opened up for Jason Mraz this spring. But now I am hooked - this is a great album and I look forward to hearing more from this talented musician.

I ordered this album because of one song, "high on the ceiling" that was played on the Good Wife one Sunday evening. I had never heard of this singer and I was pleasantly surprised that I like all her songs so it was a really good win win for me. I would recommend this CD highly.

I'm not the biggest Pop fan, but there are some extremely tight and very cleanly-recorded tunes here, several of which sport some pretty catchy hooks well worth 4 stars for those tracks. If I could give the CD 3.5 stars as a whole, that would probably be closer to my thoughts - but 3 seems too low. If you're not familiar with Anya Marina's work, I'd suggest listening a bit before jumping in an a whole CD. On the other hand, if you already like her work, this CD will be a pretty solid addition to your collection.

I discovered Anya Marina through her single (cover) "Whatever you like" which is awesome, and this is the first album I buy from her; everything on it is really good. Not sure how I'd categorize her but there's definitely more to her than meets the eye... her songs grow on you.
Highly recommended to anyone who likes a female singer-songwriter with a bit of quirk and/or attitude.
