Andien gives a glorious start for the album with the carrier single "Moving On". This inspirational song which was composed by Abdul of the Coffee Theory is brought in gospel style with the delightful taste of Motown. Harry Anggoman's gospel's touch on piano and Hammond is superb. The Cross choir has done a remarkable job, so has the young trumpeters Indra Dauna, bassist Barry Likumahuwa and the rest of the musicians. Having a solid layer enables Andien to sing freely and joyfully. And as the result, "Moving On" appears as a feel good song that is doing really well in the market right now. (Watch the video clip below). This song is indeed a winner. The second song is the evergreen from the Krakatau's collection from the 80′s, "Gemilang". This song that was written by Mira Lesmana and composed by Dwiki Dharmawan was a big hit back then with the lovely voice of Trie Utami. Andien brought the song back again by focusing on the sweetness of the melody. She's having it simple just with acoustic guitar treatment (played well by Nikita Dompas) and essential cello play by Dhimawan Krisnowo Adji. It's nice to have this song back again in the new outfit. Another cover from a famous hit of Trie Utami is next, "Keraguan". Back in 1988 this song was a major hit as it was featured in Lomba Cipta Lagu Remaja (LCLR) 1987-1988. So just like "Gemilang", this song is still popular to the adult listeners until now. This new version by Andien is interesting for still keeping the vintage flavor to fit the modern style, especially by stunning synth solo by Indra Lesmana. Indra Lesmana said that the synth solo part was all spontaneous. "I feel that a synth solo would be perfect to fill in that part, and I wanted to fill it myself." said Indra. In the end, eventhough the solo part is short, it gives more flavor to make this song standout as one of the best. Andien keeps the cuteness and catchy melodies found in the original, and give more modern groovy beat treatment in it. Again Andien did a great job on covering a classic.
