Debby has one of those distinctive, radio friendly voices which here glides across strong self penned material. As If's Phil Goss is at the production helm and he's done a splendid job both with arrangements and also with his deft guitar and keyboard work. His contribution to the proceedings neatly underpins Debby's songwriting and vocal talents and the whole album contains a variety of styles. There's the understated grown up funky pop of "Three In One" and "Come Get The Love". There's the beautiful piano ballad "Bless" and then there's the poppier songs like "Fall Down Go Boom", "You Are The Lord" and the catchy title song. Overall a good album that neatly showcases Debby's skills as a songwriter and singer.
