Well this may be an album I will need to listen in it's entirety. Judging from the samples though, I don't think this album will push her into the forefront of pop music again. In fact, from the samples, it seems disappointing in that most of the songs are not written to take benefit of her unique sound and range...like her earlier work did. Plus the album doesn't seem to have enough character in general. There are two covers ("Under the Bridge" and "Kissing You"), a Shakira sound-alike ("I'm Over My Head"), and a strange reggae tune ("She Don't Love You"). Nothing sounds horrible though...it just seems as if Taylor wasn't fully utilized.
That editorial review was really bad though. He erroneously described the song with the reggae-beat as "calypso" (not sure why...calypso accents beat 1&2 while reggae accents 1&3...they are kinda hard to confuse with one another) and says she is the first woman (well in so many words) to cover "Under the Bridge" (nah...All Saints did it on their album). And the album cover is weird...looks like Leona Lewis's cover...but way worse.
I think Taylor Dayne is a once in a lifetime singer...I may have to treat myself to this album regardless.
