Liner Note Author: Carla Morrison.
Brave, honest, bold, and beautiful, Carla Morrison's sophomore studio outing finds the 2012 Latin Grammy Award winner offering up an intimate set of heartfelt/heartbroken ballads that feel both timeless and undeniably contemporary. Shot through with subtle electronic flourishes and bolstered by Morrison's flawless voice, Amor Supremo is as sonically luxurious as it is melodramatic and emotionally charged, suggesting a Spanish-language Lana Del Ray by way of Homogenic-era Björk. Spearheaded by the seductive opener/single "Un Beso," a noir-ish and ridiculously lush bit of business that perfectly sets up the 12 songs to come, Amor Supremo manages the difficult task of striking the perfect balance between atmosphere and artistry, and presents Morrison as anything but a traditional Latin pop star. ~ James Christopher Monger
