She's still only 19, but this is Krystal Meyers' third release. Having begun with more punky and Brit-pop stylings and marketed as a Christian rock chick it's a bit surprising to hear her now with a keyboard-led pop sound. Maybe it was her new producers Doubledutch who wanted the change, or maybe it was to appeal to the perceived Japanese market (where Krystal is already huge) but the move from rock to pop is a little odd particularly at a time when another big selling CCM act Superchick have moved from pop to rock. But what of the music here? Some tracks bear superficial resemblance to quality '80s synth-pop, such as Eurythmics. Others are more up-to-date, with a definite club/dance influence. Throughout, Doubledutch (Mat Kearney, TobyMac) do a great job in finding catchy arrangements and the songs have more hooks than an infant school cloak room with the tracks packed with energy. Also, Krystal's lyrics are still focussed on the concerns of teenage Christians. If her career continues like this, then everything she touches will turn to gold. Highly recommended, particularly if you're a teenage girl.
