    One of those albums which is only have good, some great singles but the rest of the album is kinda flat and a lot of the acoustic style she brings to her live performances seems lost in the recording. She has many better b sides which could have replaced some of the lesser songs on this album. Shame.

    Awfully dull. She paid a studio to record that ? Good moments but not an album you`d listen more than once a month.

    A couple of good tracks (suddenly I see, other side of the world), but ultimatly this is a collection of songs that she wrote over a long period of time whilst trying to make it, and if this is the result of years of work, I doubt her next album will be very good

    I think she tried to prove she could write deep lyrics... but she didn't... catchy songs, but definetly wouldn't last more than 1 month listening to it... nice effort though...

    It's got okay hooks and catchy melodies, but the music feels tired and lacking life in many of her songs.

    A delicious blend of acoustic guitar, raw grooves and sublime melodies. [11 Feb 2006]
  2. The disc is made up mostly by mid-tempo classic rockers and sweet nothing ballads. Disappointing? Well, yes.
  3. A promising, satisfying debut.
