Versailles - Believe Review
by Morley Seaver

.
I have one big complaint with this record….there isn't more of it. I really like this EP from LA's Versaille, who was born Dianna St. Hilaire. And I want to hear more. Believe contains four cuts with one of the cuts being a remix of the first song, the title cut.

Versailles is a keyboard player/vocalist ŕ la Tori Amos, who sounds like Paula Cole in parts as well. She has a quirky vocal that sounds at times like it won't make it all the way into the station but it does. Versailles, who also wrote all the material, played all the instruments on the remix of "Believe".

The title track is a solid piece. It's led by her dreamy vocal that almost lags behind the beat and you can almost imagine her draped over the piano, eyes closed as she recorded this. The jewel of the set is "Lamentations", a piano-driven piece with a haunting vocal and this is where she sounds a lot like Amos. This is an awesome cut and I hope she writes more like this. "You're My Disaster" is quite good as well. The persuasive piano has you under its spell by about the second bar.

If Versailles can produce more stuff like this, she should lots of attention. I know one person that will be lining up more the next record, at least.
