"These songs which start from whispers and arrive to a (liric) rallying cry, and design a concept which take advantage of synaesthesia and principle of non-contradiction, are a milestone of songwriting of these years."
"After a myriad of chameleon projects, blazoned collaborations and three distinguished albums on her shoulders, the artist from Padua comes back with a new entirely sung in English project, which breaks into small pieces some 'parlor-style' pop-rock to make bluish confettis she throws to unforseeable gusts of wind."
ALBUM OF THE MONTH
"Be Blind isn't a mere collection of songs but a viewpoint on today and yesterday music, whose strength stays in the fusion of different elements. Debora Petrina is messanger of a Immediate, dense, and at the same time simple communication."
IL FATTO QUOTIDIANO
"DEBORA PETRINA, searching for love with her eyes shut.
Composed by 10 songs which represent the perfect synthesis of her artistic and musical career, it is a compact album with rock resonances which cross into jazz and electronics, with autobiographical lyrics and songs which pay specific attention to the inability to talk to the heart of things, in a society like ours, both in the daily relationships, and in the field of information."
"The influences are so many (Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson and, in the darkest moments, Siouxie Sioux) and combined with personality – thanks also to an intrepid voice which is second to none."
"We are struck by Petrina's leading and narrating voice, as well as the perception of an enchanting and at the same time slightly sinister sound merged together, which lead us toward the end of the album. A rich and precious velvet which doesn't reassure us for its softness, but confers a sense of authority to the one who wears it, and a sense of elegance to the one who looks at it."
"Beyond the beauty of a voice which is able to be austere and confidential at the same time, we are struck by her imagination and the expressive strength of songs sounding modern even if they boast a classical 80s/90s nature which makes them more familiar. Rather than a normal songs collection we have the impression to face an (ambitious) rock opera."
