From the acoustic guitar and synth opening, it is obvious that this is not a normal pop dance album. The rhythms, which are not the normal western pop but much more influenced by eastern music, and the clever use of programming result in a varied and refreshing sound that keeps the listeners' interest throughout. Cherrie Anderson's alternatively dreamy and powerpacked vocal delivery expertly adds to the production giving a full and rounded sound with some wonderful hooks, particularly "Little Flower" and "Love Stupid Love" but in reality every song has a gem in it somewhere. Dropped into the middle of this is a beautifully idiosyncratic rendition of the Cure's "The Lovecats" which manages to both be faithful to the original and about as different as it is possible to get - quite a feat. At the other extreme is "Heart's Cry", chosen as the youth anthem for the Pope's 2010 visit to the UK and includes samples from one of the Pope's messages and would not be out of place in the summer charts. All in all a top class pop dance album which is thoroughly recommended.
