Rachael Lampa is only 19 and this is her fourth album! Even though she is still a teenager her experience of the world is growing and shows through in the songwriting and delivery, which Rachael has much more of a hand in than on the earlier albums. Fans of her previous works will not be disappointed with the quieter and more reflective tracks like "No Other One" and "You Never Know". But this album is more noticeable for the way Rachael branches out into other styles. From pop/ska sounds reminiscent of No Doubt to the funk and hip-hop rap of "Rubberhouse", the styles cover a lot of ground without Rachael's voice ever seeming out of place. The quality of the production is outstanding as one would expect from Tommy Simms who has worked with the likes of Amy Grant and CeCe Winans. If you are looking for something that could stack up to Christina Aguilera or No Doubt this is the album you have been looking for.
