  1. She keeps shifting gears in an ill-advised attempt to please too broad an audience.
  2. Embarrassing.... It's hard to tell if [Ballard's] hyper-slick style is to blame, or if Lynne has simply hung herself. [16 Nov 2001, p.172]
  3. The disc's 10 tracks blur into a dispiriting, middle-of-the-road mishmash of lite pop, lite country, lite rock, and lite adult-contemporary.

    I was disappointed in this when it came out, but listening again recently I was surprised at how good it is.

    It's not the wonderfully soulful music of "I Am Shelby Lynne," but it is a good slick pop album. It's just disappointing knowing how much better Shelby can be. Full Review »
