  Review by Marc P November 22, 2004

This is a bit of a strange outing for Traincha (or Treintje Oosterhuis which is her real name). After having a lot of chart success as the singer of the popular Dutch band Total Touch she started a solo career. But she always stayed in the pop scene.

Standout tracks ... more
