    This was the first CD I bought of Mona & and Lisa, and I really love it. Compared to the previous album, their own style seems to be more developed, with heavenly melodies fitting nice and sometimes surprising harmonies. A very optimisitic music.

    A good time

    I have discovered that if you have a MonaLisa Twins song stuck in your head, the best thing to do is to listen to another MonaLisa Twins song, and get that stuck in your head instead. I had the intriguing “Count On Me” on repeat in my brain, but then I watched the video for their anthem “Once Upon a Time” on YouTube and that seems to have taken over. Can’t complain. They’re both very good. So’s the rest of the album they’re on, ORANGE.

    The MonaLisa Twins are Mona (vocals, mainly drums and rhythm guitar) and Lisa Wagner (vocals, mainly lead guitar) with their father Rudi Wagner on bass and piano, co-writing the songs, and producing. On this album there are a couple of tracks with John Sebastian, formerly of the Lovin’ Spoonful, sitting in on blues harp. The Twins have been posting YouTube videos since the sisters were about 14, many of them covers of Beatles songs. The Beatles connection goes deeper: About four years ago the family moved from their native Austria to Liverpool, and the Twins later had a two year residence playing every Saturday night at the Cavern Club.

    I’ve really been enjoying ORANGE. You can call it a throwback if you like, but there’s nothing wrong with being influenced and inspired by some of the best music of the past, calling back some of the qualities that have been lost in our push to the present day.

    Moods range from melancholy to upbeat to downright slapstick. “No More Worries Company” is a ton of fun, but pointy; careful you don’t get jabbed by it.

    Then there’s the darkly goofy “Sweet Lorraine”. I had ORANGE on shuffle play with the Twins’ Beatles cover albums and “Sweet Lorraine” came up immediately after “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”. Now that’s a medley! But honestly… “Sweet Lorraine” is the better song of the two. I’ve never been a big fan of “Maxwell”, but “Lorraine” hits the target “Maxwell” missed.

    Fifty years after Abbey Road, not only are the children of that era still listening to the Beatles, but many of their children and their grandchildren are too. The MonaLisa Twins are not only listening but learning and putting their own spin on the music of that time, with joyous results.

    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

    Jeffrey Teuber (verified owner)

    “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!

    Bought on the strength of two songs but found many more brilliant tunes, a welcome return to true music and talent.

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.
