    All the Best

    • Hi Alfonso,
      An Italian friend of mine will be translating the review in English as soon as she gets back to Belgium. Once I have it, I will surely post it here and get it to you! We’ll stay in touch 😉

      Thanks again for taking the time to really listen to the album and thanks for the appreciation, I’m so glad you liked it!
      All the best!
      Susan

      ps : I think you could write reviews in English in the future as well yourself, your English is certainly good enough!!
