“Mind’s Eye Compilation” is a soulful R&B dance EP from talented vocalist Lisa Panagos. These songs have great commercial appeal, are very upbeat, and are ready to get you moving. Lisa has a fantastic voice and shows you a complete range of talent with her performances on the EP. The arrangements are great and feature beautiful melodies, addicting hooks, and catchy choruses. There are interesting creative choices as far as the production goes; Each track sounds complete and harnesses the qualities that make dance music work. Highlights include “Know My Soul,” an extremely catchy track with a great chorus that is ready for the radio. “Down” takes you down the road of experimentation with unconventional sounds, a slightly dark undertone, and great production. “Mind’s Eye R$B” wraps things up nicely with atmospheric elements combined with soulful rhythms, nice vocal layering, and a great performance from Lisa.
