If I was to give this album a rating from one to ten, I would refuse because it’s not fair to limit the feelings I experienced from listening to it over and over. Each time a different song tripped an experience in my life. I can truthfully say I’ve never heard another act that has such command of both the instruments and the vocals. For instance, I really like the jazz licks on “Sweet Lorraine.” And the vocals on “Pretty Flamingo” Your harmonies and the way you can reach high notes is unreal. Especially, on “Both Sides Now” and “Wish You Were Here.” All the songs were done with what I will call “the MonaLisa Soul” (meaning you make them your own). My personal favorite is “Wish You Were Here” – from the Mona’s opening with the 12 string (by the way reminds of a Cajun song. Can’t remember name). Then Lisa comes in with a soulful lead just blows me away. But the vocals/harmonies brought tears down my cheek. This was even before I knew what the song was about.
So I will give Duo Sessions a rating of Masterpiece! Please, please me and do a part II. Groovy to you too. Thanks.

I just received the Duo Sessions CD and I have to say all the songs were beautifully mixed. From a song written in 1926 to Imagine by Lennon to your originals like All About Falling In Love to Close To You, bright energetic beautiful harmonies and your musicianship is really second to none!!! Wish you were here, a Pink Floyd song, one of your best covers on You Tube was exceptionally played. The harmonies and the delivery of the guitar’s sounds were just beautiful. Thank you for such a great album!!! I will recommend this to anyone as I listened to it for a solid week in the car and enjoyed it tremendously….Walt Music

I’ve got all of MonaLisa Twins’ CD’s. Their renditions of Beatles and other 60s artists, plus their own songs are, shall we say, “music to my ears.” I post their YouTubes all the time on Facebook for others to see. They are the real deal! Vielen Dank!

As always, excellent musicianship, beautiful harmony singing. The originals really benefit from the stripped down approach.
It’s expensive to get product shipped from the UK to Australia. Not much anyone can do about that, but it does mean that Bandcamp looks increasingly attractive. Perhaps for those of us on the other side of the world, you might consider putting more of your catalog onto Bandcamp?
Anyway, I love your music folks and I always look forward new releases.
Cheers, Dave from South Australia

It must be really hard for artists, like Mona+Lisa, when you can’t go out and play (music that is). How do you get creative and how to earn a crust? So the solution – the Duo Album is a win win solution. Win for us because we get some great tunes presented in a different way. And with many of the tracks a better way. I have Orange and When We’re Together so to hear some of those tracks repackaged on this album was treat. I love the raw energy that comes across in the Duo recordings (as opposed to the polished “studio” versions) as a live tracks.
Favorites? The hand clapping on “Tired of Waiting” , the childlike backing on “Sweet Lorraine” – in fact that song is brilliant on the Duo Album. My firm favourite at the moment is “Close to You” (the lyrics have a resonance for me and the delivery is spot on) but “Here Comes the Sun” could have been written for the MonaLisa Twins.
Thank you for sharing.
