    I should confess - at first, I wasn't very fond of this album either. But after a couple of listens, Ellis-Bextor won me over (again). It's pure dance-pop perfection and I don't see how anyone could deny it. Minus the disappointing "Homewrecker", the album is one of her best works.

    I think this album is worst Sophie Ellis-Bextor album. Strange that half of album songs was released as singles but just few of them deserve to be a single. I think this album could have been better, if it would have less electronic sounds which in some songs sounds annoyingly. Then I hear songs Heartbreak, Can't fight this feeling, Under Your Touch and Bittersweet i thought this albumI think this album is worst Sophie Ellis-Bextor album.

    Make a Scene still provides a couple of gems, but it's hard to shake the feeling that she's now milked the whole dance-pop ice-maiden schtick well and truly dry.

    For this album she as worked with a breathtaking array of collaborators, with varied results. [Jul 2011, p.115]

    Despite the contemporary co-writes, in an age where Take That work with Stuart Price and Nicola Roberts embraces Diplo's electro cool, this album comes across as a selection of competent B sides surrounding the fantastic Starlight.
