“This is rich, hugely approachable music, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious. And it seems to speak to just about everybody… from grade-schoolers to grandmothers to the young and hip and beautiful.” – Washington Post

“(Pink Martini) delivers a knowing sophistication backed by skillful arrangements… Ms. Forbes is an unpretentious, pitch-perfect chanteuse who can be breathy and girlish or sultry… she tempers heartbreak with savior-faire.” – New York Times

AllMusic Review by Jason Ankeny
Pink Martini’s debut album incorporates an impressive variety of influences. Traces of Cuban music, cabaret, and film soundtracks are all discernible on Sympathique, an intriguing blend of contemporary pop painted with brass, strings, and percussion.
