    Awesome album! It's rare that I love every song on an album, but this is one of those albums. CM has a sensuous, melifluous, moving voice. All the melodies are gorgeous. "Fragile" is my #1 song - it's bangin'. I also love "Blame It On Me" and "Porcelain Doll." And all the others as well. I highly recommend this CD.

    As much as I love Chrisette Michelle, I just could not get a feel for her as a artist in this CD. With the album being produced by Ne-Yo, the modern R/B feel just does not fit Chrisette's soulful voice. Her first album stood out more because it was more neo-soul than the urban r/b and pop feel. It made her stand out. I believe that she should go back to the basics and make another As much as I love Chrisette Michelle, I just could not get a feel for her as a artist in this CD.

  1. Chrisette, naturally, sounds outstanding throughout, as a supernaturally talented vocalist whose songs are nonetheless easily relatable to anyone going through a breakup--or, to a significantly lesser extent here, newfound love--but the album could have really used more rhythmic punch than a token throwback strutter.
  2. Michele is more wry than most feel-good sisters, and never sentimental. She doesn't offer any solutions to the predicament of women caught up in sweet, rough love; like those blues queens of yore, she just takes you there. The journey is gift enough.
  3. As pianos flutter and faint bass lines pulse in these sultry mid-tempo gentlemen's ballads--written and co-produced by Ne-Yo, who also guests on 'What You Do'--she makes those kiss-offs go down easy.
