  • Summary: An eight-track solo compilation from Saint Etienne vocalist Sarah Cracknell.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 5
  2. Negative: 1 out of 5
  1. Alternative Press
    Wrap Cracknell's voice around a sweet, soulful confection and she remains the embodiment of all modern pop dreams and desires. [Dec 2000, p.94]
  2. New treats for established fans and a quick overview for the newly curious.
  3. This release is a bit more synth-driven, and songs like "Taking off for France" and "Taxi" exude a sophisticated disco flair that's naturally linked to Cracknell's sweet but smooth persona.
  4. 60
    It's a bit uneven, but you would be hard-pressed to find better runway music this year.
  5. Do I really wish to describe the pallid piano ballad that is "Judy, Don't You Worry," or the Euro-dance dreck that Cracknell calls "Taking Off for France?" Nico's Liquid Steel remix of "Anymore" adds a modicum of drum-n-bass excitement to the original but not enough to excuse the Vengaboys-for-Uptown-Soirees statement of vacuity, "Penthouse Girl, Basement Boy." How about if I skip the would-be anthemic were-it-not-so-Michael Bolton "How Far?"
