Born in Japan but raised in Michigan, Italy and Canada, Anna Domino's musical output has been appropriately multi-cultural. 'Dreamback' assembles sixteen tracks from a twelve year time frame presenting a mood of classy, restrained pop with many different styles covered en route. An Eastern ambience forms the undertow to the clever 'This Time', salsa informs 'Zanna' and 'Tamper With Time' employs Spanish guitars. It's unfortunate that some of the 80s tracks suffer from a tinny production, diluting the imapct of Domino's intelligent lyrics. So it's perhaps inevitable that her best work here ('Tempting', 'Lake') have a subtle gorgeousness that serves Domino's effortlessly gliding vocals so well. At these times, like a soundtrack to foreign travel, Domino retains a cool very much of her own making.
