Reviewed by Steve Best

First reviewed in CR58 and originally released back in 1999, this has now been taken on by Fierce!. And no wonder, for this is simply one of the best singer/songwriter records in recent years. One of Kendall's strengths is her honesty coupled with her uncanny ability to translate it to song. It would be hard to pick a standout, such is the quality on offer, but "Closer To Myself" and "Perfect By Thursday" (which all ladies will relate to) are delightful radio-friendly pop, "Supermodels" is brilliant, witty, Alanis-like fare and there are delicate vulnerable ballads such as "Honest" and "Fatherless At 14" to challenge and inspire. Basically, every cut a winner and an album to cherish.
