The Time Album was produced, mixed and mastered by Darrell Bell.
« No personal curriculum can attest to the rarity of this voice of earth and ether which, as soon as Ilene unleashes its soft power, the serene magnitude makes us succumb to the idea that this woman is forcibly either man-eater or goddess, and probably both at once. In an ambiance a little less pagan, one can compare her superb contralto and her anatomy, to the unification of the Evangelist to the Cathedral.
« Time », her second album, thus evokes the same, sacred memory of Mahalia Jackson and the sulfuric sensuality of Joan Armatrading. Her beautiful, esthetic and poetic writing has a close uncomfortable and uncanny resemblance to that of Virginia Woolf, and her theatrical singing making David Bowie a good god father. »
