    Characterised by both an ill-advised flirtation with cutting-edge electronics and an overabundance of rather washed-out reggae. [Jun 2003, p.98]

    Another pop perfect release. Chrissie has never sounded in better voice. This CD gets stronger with every listen.

    A real return to form. Most consistent effort since "Learning to Crawl".
