Before you Rachel Lampa fans rush out to the shops to snatch up this latest release from one of CCM's hottest talents, be warned. For this is yet another, of a long line of, remix albums floating off the shelves of American pop. Yes, it's all there, 10 tracks from her last two outings, each with a snazzy remix name attached and all produced by top notch names in the business. And guess what, it works! Rachel has provided us with a treat. Each track feels much fresher and danceable. Standout track being Souljahz's take of "I'm All Yours", guaranteed to get anyone grooving. There is a well-defined R&B/rap sound on many of the tracks, which makes this a must for those who like to party. I am personally not too keen on one or two of the remixes, notably that of "Live For You", which has a depressingly fast dance beat. However, this does not detract from the overall fun the rest of the album emits. A worthy album to pick up, even if you already own the originals.
