    Excellent Experience

    A joyful artistic expression! Quite a range of musical styles, although several have that Beatles-like quality, which is fine with me. I like the packaging design as well, and it was nice to get a guitar pick with the purchase (since I’m a guitarist). Fun and recommended.

    Wonderful Music

    “Orange” is a gorgeous album. I love that you two are able to create music that is evocative of “that” time, yet original and interesting in “its own write,” as Lennon might say. I swear I heard George playing his Gretsch AND his Rickenbacker 360/12 on one cut (“Once Upon A Time,” I think). Thanks also to John Sebastian for the wonderful harp playing. My favorite tracks are “Close to You,” “In It For Love,” “That’s Life,” and “Still A Friend of Mine.” Add a special tip of the hat to “Waiting For The Waiter,” just for fun. The harmonies are beautiful, the guitar work inspired.

    In closing, I cannot think of a higher compliment than this: I intend to give this album as gifts to friends and family members. Thank you, for everything.

    I love all of the original songs on Orange but my favorite is still a friend of mine. One of the most beautifully produced videos I have ever seen! MLT vocals are beautiful and harmonies are always amazing, I love watching the videos on you tube but having the cd lets me enjoy MLT music even more!

    I Love It!

    Your original music is very special! I really love your sound. Your vocals and harmonies are great and so is the instrumental work. It’s hard to pick a favorite on this album. Depending on what mood I’m in I go for specific songs. “Once Upon a Time” is very catchy! I think “Still a Friend of Mine” is a stand-out, and I cannot tell you how many times I’ve watched that video, it’s outstanding and seems to be very timely with all that is happening these days. I love all your music and videos, they are superb! Thank you!

    All You Need Is Orange

    I am a very recent convert to the Mona Lisa Twins and their beautiful vision after discovering their amazing archive of work on YouTube, stretching back over ten years. I immediately thought to myself, ‘why hasn’t anyone told me about this’ and I haven’t wasted any time making up for my loss. I have now purchased everything that the Mona Lisa Twins have produced musically and am transported to the sixties where I revelled in the anticipation of the next Beatles or Stones release. Now it is the next MLT release!

    Orange is a must have album for anyone who appreciates well written, sung and performed music that is perfectly produced. Like Sgt Pepper’s, it gets better with each listening and also includes the lyrics on the inner sleeve so you can follow along, as with that Beatles’ record just over fifty years ago. Briefly, following are some of my notes on each track.

    No More Worries Company – Mona & Lisa share the lead on this opener written mainly by Rudolf I believe. A catchy ‘Roaring Twenties’ style musical assuring us we have nothing to worry about. As you listen to this album, all your cares will disappear, I promise!

    Once Upon A Time – Featuring Lisa on lead and Mona harmonies. This will transport you back to the psychedelic late sixties and the ‘dawning of the age of Aquarius, complete with the language of the day, spurred along by Sebastian’s blues harp. A wonderful indulgence!

    Close To You – Also featuring Lisa on lead, Mona harmonies. A lovely 60s style ballad about lost/found love.

    It’s Alright – Featuring Mona “Teachers”, Lisa verses, Both chorus. Spontaneous and playful with the twins beautiful intertwining vocals a special feature. They work together seamlessly.

    Waiting For The Waiter – Lisa on lead, Mona harmonies. An excellent bluesy number featuring Lisa’s very sensual voice accompanied by Sebastian’s blues harp.

    In It For Love – Lisa on lead, Mona harmonies. A bubbly number that for some reason reminds me of the sixties again. Is it the kinks’ ‘Dedicated Follower of Fashion’, the Rolling Stones ‘Out of Our Heads’ or perhaps Herman’s Hermits ‘I’m Into Something Good’?

    Count On Me – Lisa 1st verse, then both. Initial idea formulated in the dark by Lisa during a blackout. Rudolf contributed the chorus. A sublimely haunting and gentle tune with matching lyrics philosophising on ‘what’s it all about’.

    Sweet Lorraine – Mona on lead, Lisa harmonies. A bitter/sweet story with a deadly twist, perhaps! You’ll need to listen to the lyrics carefully to find out! Listen out for the trumpet and I’m sure you can also hear a tenor horn or French horn there somewhere. Now where could they be coming from?

    That’s Life – Lisa on lead, Mona harmonies. A fun song about the ups and downs and twists of life and how important it is to seize the moment. Partnered with an excellent and hilarious video. ‘Life, give it a chance ……….. Before the book closes’!

    Club 27- – Mona on lead, Lisa harmonies. A real rocker in tribute to real rockers who never had a 28th birthday. Mona on lead vocals showing she has true rock cred to go with Lisa’s magical guitar work. What a blast!

    Still a Friend of Mine – Lisa lead, Mona harmonies. A sublime ballad featuring Papa Rudi on piano and Lisa on lead vocals with Mona in perfect harmony. Truly beautiful song also accompanied by a beautiful video. Not to be missed.

    Do yourself a favour. Order a copy immediately. And if you haven’t already, double up with their truly awesome first album ‘While We’re Together’. You won’t be disappointed.

    Orange is the new Sgt Peppers

    Andy Buckley (verified owner)

    My first purchase of MLT Music and I was not disappointed. The things that impressed me were:-
    1. The Variety of styles from Nonsense songs (No more worries company) to Classic Piano Ballads (Still a friend of mine) with everything and every style in between. The 60s influence is present in songs like Close to You and the Close Harmonies in “in it for Love” – Just like the variety in Sgt Peppers!
    2. The clarity of the voices – I don’t know if it was Dad that did the mixing but the voices are crystal clear and the harmonies tight and varied. Overall production values are very high with variety of additions, Banjo’s, childrens choirs, extracts from film soundbites etc used very effectively.
    3. Impressive musicianship by both MLT and others. Some of the guitar riffs are outstanding – George would be proud of you!
    4. looking forward to the next album but even more I am looking forward to seeing you Live – even if it means getting you to come to our village fete! ( Just like The Quarrymen at Woolton fete in 1957 when Paul met John)

About the Album

The MonaLisa Twins’ much anticipated follow-up original record to their debut album “When We’re Together”. 5 years have passed since the release of original material while the Twins played countless shows all over Europe, moved their residence to England, and learned some important life lessons. In other words … they lived life.

In comparison to their first album, which was still written in their teens, ORANGE gives a more mature, sometimes satirical, yet overall still light-hearted approach to topics we all deal with. Love, community, doubt, the past and future and the generally unsettling direction society seems to be taking.

While staying true to their passion for melodic, quirky songwriting, plenty of harmonies, a very “60s” sound and twangy guitar licks, this album branches out into new territories and incorporates very psychedelic but also earthy, bluesy, sometimes even jazzy tones. Built upon everything you loved about their debut album, you can expect to hear a more experimental and very tongue-in-cheek side of the MonaLisa Twins.
