Reviews:

"Over a decade on it still sounds classy, an amalgam of Latin beat and European machine grooves, like New Order accosting Sade on a jazz cruise. The title track may sound like a joyous salsa ride, but lyrically it's a vehicle for Carroll to express her disillusionment with her homeland. This combination of salsa and sadness is a compelling one" (Q, 09/2002)

"Just about flawless" (Time Out New York, 12/2002)

"Gentle grooves and a voice to melt your heart" (Chicago Sun Times, 09/2002)

"A cunning work of slinky, sinister pop and ghostly electronics - prefigures the sort of female-fronted dance pop popularized by groups like St Etienne" (All Music Guide, 10/2002)

"Add together some punchy remixes and we have a forgotten gem of an album" (Leonard's Lair, 08/2002)

"Hey - ten years ago I really did miss out on a great record. Stand-out tracks are the more dance-orientated tracks like Send Me Over, Subtitled and the fabulous opener Moves Like You. It's really that good" (Tangents, 07/2002)

"Her music is a farrago of curious influences - Brazilian dance pop, the Manhattan Transfer, Herb Alpert maybe, and (mostly because of her potent low-volume vocalizing) Sade. She found a genuinely new frontier - underground MOR" (The Chicago Reader, 1993)

"An album worthy of obsession - a rainy-day afternoon pop-lite affair that is really rather enjoyable" (mundanesounds.com, 2002)
