  • Summary: The singer's second solo disc includes six tracks co-written with Linda Perry as well as a cover of Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry."
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. While it's undeniably polished, it's a bit too dark, a bit too quirky, and a bit too individualistic to be part of the mainstream, while being too slick and professional to be on the fringe, but the album is all the more ingratiating for being caught between two worlds.
  2. The whole affair is overly polished, strangely detached and contains a thoroughly unnecessary cover of Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry."
  3. Her Sheryl Crow-like growl can't win the battle against the disc's glossy production. [8 Apr 2005, p.64]
  4. Doesn't stray far from the formula that brought her moderate success her first time out.
  5. None of it sounds better than capable.
  6. Despite hitmaker Linda Perry co-writing half of the album's original tracks, something is missing.

    The big '80s-style production highlights her breathy-sexy vulnerability, but Presley's better when she rocks. [May 2005, p.123]
