Review of "Seeing Angels" by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Boggie Dimitrova’s new record is a solid effort. She’s mostly soft-spoken but her words speak volumes.
“Thought Abbout It” is a moving song about unrequited love, delivered with confidence.
“Drunk and Dizzy” is a fun, up tempo song where Boggie’s angelic vocals compete for attention with the spirited backing.
“Moonwalk” is a nice song, Boggie singing sweetly to a bouncy backing. She uses her girlish voice well here.
“To Dad” is a suitable and moving ode to her father. She’s made a very nice record.

Boggie Dimitrova has the voice of an angel and a great pop sensibility. Her album, Seeing Angels, starts off with the mid-tempo love song, "Thought About It," which showcases her masterful melody-writing. "Winter Blues" is an old-school 12-bar blues tune, and the Latin-influenced, "Drunk & Dizzy," has tenebrous lyrics about an ex-lover. "Seeing Angels" is an uplifting ballad with an exquisite melody, and the pop-rock, "Tell Me All About It," would be great for radio. The passionate, "Someday Somehow," is absolutely stunning. The cute ode to cherry cheesecake, "Cheesecake Blues," is prime for a Sara Lee commercial. "Moonwalk" is an opulent ballad with a heart-wrenching melody, and the touching, "To Dad," is marked with a beautiful harmonic progression. "Summer Blues" has a definite Norah Jones feel to it. "Waiting" is a rock song with a nice mainstream pop feel. The emotional, "Inside My Heart," is dark and mysterious, and the enchanting, "Can't I Say I Love You" is melodically sublime. Very eclectic, yet beautiful CD!
