"Following her acclaimed debut album, Enantiodromia, Azita brings more of what made that album great -- rhythmic, virtuostic piano-based songs with intense, driven singing -- and something different again, as well. Life On The Fly features the same crack group of players backing her up -- but this time, a diversity of keyboard and vocal textures are in the mix, adding harmony to the strong, twisted melodies of the songs -- which themselves, are all-new. So it goes in Azita's parade of sunshine and noir -- fun and/or games. Themes of (mostly unfavorable) dealing, bargaining, trading, or compromise underlie every track on this record. The maze of details she finds behind potentially benign everyday events creates a flies-eye kaleidoscope of lyrical refractions that distort and clarify in their turn. Traveling with Azita from point A to point B becomes an adventure, a trip that you take with her driving and you riding shotgun."
