Australian musical icon Diana Anaid returns to the scene with a new album, My Queen. This LP doesn’t feel like a side project or casual effort either. This a full blown, chartworthy alternative/pop/rock record. She must have spent her downtime recharging her crystals because there’s a lot of energy in these songs, which contain trace elements of 60’s psychedelia, 80’s new wave, punk, pop, alternative and even country. The music is very fast paced and upbeat and shouldn’t be confused with the more “dreary” styles of alternative rock. Positivity appears to be one of the major themes of the album. An entire essay could probably be written about the lyrical meaning behind so many of these songs. They tend to focus on rather serious issues, but do so in a way that allows the listener to choose whether they want to explore social consciousness, rock out, or both. Diana’s vocals display such universal appeal and versatility that they could be adapted to almost any genre or era, which probably explains why she’s seen success in 3 different decades of music.
