This album has a very early 90's R&B/'Hip-pop' feel to it. Think Salt N Pepa and Bobby Brown. The material is, for the most part, not very original, however it does't stop this being a great album. It's one you'll have on repeat for sure. Highlights include the title track, and lead single, 'What Comes Naturally', 'If You Wanna Keep Me' and 'Forever Friends'. Sheena even writes a track herself, a great little closing gem called 'To Anyone'. The album is mainly of interest to fans of Sheena, New Jack Swing and cheesy pop. Recommended.

Very fun dance-heavy album from Sheena! 6 May 2005
By Preston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I played this Sheena Easton album a lot back in 1991! I liked What Comes Naturally, but it's no contest to the album's more funkier songs, such as You Can Swing It (very Bell Biv Devoe-ish), Manic Panic, Time Bomb, Somebody, If You Wanna Keep Me (one of Vassal Benford's earlier songs) and so forth. It was a surprising shift since I had always known Sheena as a pop singer that had many nice '80s hits. But this album challenges even Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson's dance heavy albums! The new jack swing sound that was popular back then worked well for Sheena too. And while Sheena's time with this music was short lived, it was very chance taking. One of my favorite albums by her.

Sheena Easton Doing What Comes Naturally Indeed! 7 Jan. 2013
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You won't get any argument from me that 1988's The Lover in Me is quite an impressive album,zeroing right in on Sheena Easton's talents as a funky soul vocalist and including songs again written by creative collaborator and (allegedly) one time romantic interest Prince. The period immediately after that album was released marked a very pointed change not only in R&B/funk but dance music in general. Basically it came down between the disco inspired house styled dance music pioneered throughout the decade,or the hip-hop/sample heavy new jack swing style of funk. Fact is,it wasn't really possible to survive commercially at the time if the artist wasn't able to go with the flow of things. With creative collaborators such as musician/producers Jeff Lorber and David Frank (of The System) helping out,Sheena Easton found herself in a good position to make a go of it herself.

The album starts out with three high power new-jack inspired funk tracks in the title song,"If You Wanna Keep Me" and "You Can Swing It". She co-writes the the energetic funky house/pop of "The First Touch Of Love",one of my favorites numbers here as well as the epic ballad "The Next Time". Two other favorites of mine here are the Southern soul influenced epics "Forever Friends" and the closer "To Anyone",both of which come to life from her incomparable pipes. David Frank and Heatwave's Derek Bramble come into play on two more excellent new-jack flavored funk on "Time Bomb" and "Half A Heart" respectively. There's also "Manic Panic"-fierce,bassy mid 80's style dance-funk that comes straight out of her previous album. There's also more of that sound to be heard,though mildly lower in tempo on "Somebody" as well.

From beginning to end,this is every bit as wonderful an album as it's predecessor,with not a bad song in the bunch. At a time when a lot of female artists working in the pop/R&B/funk world were beginning to present themselves as being somewhat sexually predatory in attitude,Easton maintained her own character by presenting herself as someone who was analytical and investigative of the interpersonal ups and downs which she sang about-rather than just acting haughty and indifferent. Also what is done with the different modern dance/funk production styles of the era has a lot of value too. Though very much up to date,musically on every level this entire album could just as easily have been recorded and released a year after it's predecessor,at the end of the 1980's,as it was four years after it. That says a lot right there.

Do You Want To Dance With Sheena? 15 July 2002
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you want to dance to Sheena Easton's music, this is the CD for you. "What Comes Naturally" features Sheena performing upbeat dance music that may not have been that "natural" for her to perform and record. The music is her response to the changing musical trends of the time, continuing in the direction she had taken on her previous release, "The Lover In Me". Listening to it today, you might not realize that this was originally released over a decade ago. The music is so full of energy.
Unlike her early releases, which featured many soft ballads, with keyboards and strings, the emphasis here is on the beat, and having Sheena vocally swing with it. If you liked her primary for lovely emotional songs like "Almost Over You", this music is not for you. The closest songs to that style are "To Anyone", "The Next Time" and "Forever Friends". The remaining tracks are upbeat numbers that are more suitable for active dancing. Very aerobic, workout music.
It is interesting to hear Sheena bringing her unique vocal style to this type of music. The album's single, "What Comes Naturally" kicks things off, and even features Sheena doing a bit of rap. "Half A Heart" is a tune that kind of updates her 80's rock sound. "Somebody" could be a Britney Spears song. "Manic Panic" is a bouncy rhythmic number. "Time Bomb" and "You Can Swing It" sound a lot like hip-hop to me. "The First Touch Of Love" is rhythmic tune with a more "electronic" sound. It's hard to keep still, listening to these tunes. Somehow your hips just want to start moving.
The sound of the songs may have been influenced by the success of artists like Paula Abdul. Listening to "If You Wanna Keep Me", you may notice a similarity in style. Unfortunately the audience for this CD was not particularly large. You won't find a timeless love song that brings a tear to the eye, but if you want to bump and grind, this is not bad at all. Purists should have no fear, this style of music is really not what Ms. Easton is about. If you want to hear Sheena singing the standards, check out her wonderful "No Strings" CD, which interestingly was her next release after "Naturally".
More than just a talented singer with a beautiful voice, the lady is a survivor. Having just seen Sheena Easton performing her classics in Vegas, I can say that she still puts great passion and fire into her music, but also has the maturity not to take herself too seriously. Seeing her in person, has caused me to give this CD a second chance, and I'm really glad I did because I enjoy it now more than ever.

Almost as Good as "The Lover in Me" But Not Quite 17 Aug. 2010
By Kasey G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sheena Easton's "What Comes Naturally" album was originally released in 1991, following her successful, dance-heavy LP "The Lover in Me".

At the time, I heard a DJ comment that this was like "a female Bobby Brown" album, and I would say that's an accurate description. This album has more of a hip-hop influence than its predecessor, which was more influenced by the Minneapolis sound.

The first three tracks "What Comes Naturally," "If You Wanna Keep Me" and "You Can Swing It" all have the influence of Pebbles or even Bel-Biv-Devoe, who were huge at the time.

For a white Scottish lass, Sheena is surprisingly able to pull off the hip-hop material and sounds much better and not as glossy and artificial as say, Lisa Stansfield. Can you name another female artist with the versatility to do country AND hip-hop?

"The First Touch of Love" is a slightly more laid-back cut.

The piano-intro of "Forever Friends" slows things down slightly, but it has a steady beat; "The Next Time" is slightly slower even still. Both tracks are ok but not outstanding.

"Manic Panic" is a hyperactive jolt that picks things up again and lives up to its fitting title.

"Somebody" is a sexy, slightly slower number and one of the better tracks. It almost has an S.O.S. Band sound to it.

"Time Bomb" literally starts off ticking and tries to be this album's "101" but is nowhere near as good, though it's great to hear Sheena's vocals at their most unrestrained here.

Thankfully, Sheena saves the best for last on this album and one of the best tracks is the fast-paced "Half a Heart". This one really swings and is a perfect blend of the Minneapolis sound and hip-hop. It has interesting processed background vocals, clever "wipes" and an almost carnival-like atmosphere throughout.

The closer is a haunting ballad called "To Anyone" which reminds me of Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" except it's much better and the tempo is less lethargic. Sheena's vocals soar on this song.

Sheena is now in full-diva mode on this album, but the problem is that none of the songs really stand out like many of them did on "The Lover in Me". This album really has no "Lover", "101", "One Love", or even "Days Like This". Still, it's an enjoyable listen and a great workout album if nothing else.

Sheena Does Music Naturally with this audacious set of songs! 12 Dec. 2008
By koolrico - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have wanted to purchase this album for quite some time. I finally made the order than received it with two other Sheena albums. Sheena proved she is not your ordinary secular music artist. "What Comes Naturally" is her second album in where she performs songs with a harder edge. This change began several years before with the "A Private Heaven" album. Here Sheena sings songs similar to her 1990's contemporaries such as Vanessa L. Williams, Jody Watley, Tara Kemp, Karyn White, Pebbles, Jasmine Guy, Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul among others. She does it as well as well as them all!
Here is my rating of each song:

1. "What Comes Naturally" 10/10
2. "If You Wanna Keep Me" 10/10
3. "You Can Swing It" 10/10
4. "The First Touch Of Love" 10/10
5. "Forever Friends" 9/10
6. "The Next Time" 10/10
7. "Manic Panic" 10/10
8. "Somebody" 10/10
9. "Time Bomb" 10/10
10. "Half A Half" 10/10
11. "To Anyone" 10/10

The album opens with the sensual Dance-pop song "What Comes Naturally." It became a Top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hit, peaking at #19. The music video is one of her best yet! Lyrically it is straight forward about what she wants from the man she desires. Without a doubt she was sexy but classy in it. I love the lyrics. "If You Wanna Keep Me" is a song Paula Abdul could have made a major hit at the time, still I am glad Sheena got it. She rocked it! She tell her man to keep doing the things he did at the start of their relationship. It became an immediate favourite of mine. "You Can Swing It" was a wise choice as a second single, unfortunately it did not get the song push for radio airplay. There was no video for it either. So, this fabulous song did not hit the mark for those reason. It has aged well as it stand as one of the best forgotten New Jack Swing songs released to radio. "The First Touch Of Love" is a more electronic pop with parse beats and a nice bassline. A solid song. "Forever Friends" is a pleasant song about not letting go and keeping a friendship going. "The Next Time" is the first ballad on the album. It is about how she wish she did not have to break up with him. She hopes he will reconsider ending their relationship. Sheena sings it well. Her vocal approach suits it. The production of the song bares a slight resemblance to "Where Do Broken Hearts Go?." "Manic Panic" is one that has aged well. The problem is excellent! I love how she uses her lower register in the verses. It is about a man that her senses cannot ignore. "Somebody" is one of the most memorable songs here, musically. It the smoothest and funkiest mid tempo song here. Again it sung her lower register in the verses. Lyrically, you have to listen to it a few times before it gets caught up in your head. She tells her man to get it together because there is a new man who came into her life. He now wants to take her current boyfriend's place. While this song would also suit Britney, she could have done it good version of it on her first two album. However, she would ruin it now! "Time Bomb" is a New Jack Swing song with a bit of Hip-Hop to it. She warns a man not to waste his life on things like anonymous sex (it hidden in the subtext of the song) because we are only here for a limited time. It one of the catchiest songs on the album. "Half A Half" a the fastest song here. It is more Dance-pop and New Jack Swing, but it is just good! The is about the start of a relationship with a man that started well. As time goes on she saw he was not as true as she thought. The album concludes with dramatic keyboard balld, "To Anyone." At a time when these ballads were beginning to dominate the upper regions of the Billboard Hot 100 and Mainstream format radio stations, "To Anyone" should have become at least Top 30 on either the Pop or A/C charts. It still has strong potential to become a hit as it as aged very well. Sheena sings it will just the right amount of emotion. It is the only truly bittersweet song on the album.

Overall, "What Comes Naturally" is a A+ effort that obiviously was created and made with care and passion. It stands as one of the best albums most people do not have but should. This is especially true for anyone who enjoys the Pop/R&B/AC sound most popular albums at the time and for a long time after that possess. The album includes all the song lyrics, all the credits. It also has a few well chose photographs of Sheena at her most beautiful. The centrefold headshot photograph where she looks fabulous! It is an album I will treasure along with all of the Sheena albums. I hope she comes back to the upper regions of the albums and singles charts again, this time to stay!
