Nigerian-born singer/songwriter TolumiDE (pronounced toe-LU-mee-day) has gone all out to make her debut full length release as musically varied as possible by employing the services of a plethora of different producers to help her stride a number of musical genres. Naturally, TolumiDE is most at home when she is referencing her African roots in the likes of "Ekabo" and "Because You Know" but she confidently pulls off some chart-worthy R&B in "What I'd Like To Be" that successfully marries some slick funk with honest spiritual lyrical content. Elsewhere, TolumiDE sensitively handles the age old problem of measuring desire for a love relationship against God's will in "For Me" which showcases some adept songwriting skills. Unfortunately, songs such as the title track, the Latin-tinged "Speed Of Life" and the flimsy "All Cell Phones" are fairly insubstantial offerings and fail to meet the standard set elsewhere.
