To a "nelly-virgin" like myself (I had half heard, I'm like a bird (twice) before listening to this album)the first few tracks set you thinking that you are going to get a not-too-bad clone of Jewel/Alannis but after a while you can sense that there is a whole lot more happening here. There are strains of Destiny's child/All Saints( at their best)with a bit of Basia thrown in for good measure - a real R n B influence in the middle part of the CD. It then finishes off with a very much Gloria Estefan style of Latin music for the last few songs. My description may sound like a mish-mash of different styles but IT WORKS. The songs flow into each other and the overall feel is lyrically adept and musically very competant. This is one of the freshest sounding CDs that I have heard for a long time! A REALLY NICE album and one that only the really pretentious could criticise. Go hungry, stuff the credit card bill and buy this with the last tenner that you own - you will not be disappointed.
