AllMusic Review by

The banal title fronts a disappointing debut from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, fusing Human League synth with beats and cinematic strings ("Take Me Home"/"Murder on the Dancefloor"). Nothing, though, really comes close to matching the shimmering highlight, "Murder on the Dancefloor," which guests bass genius Guy Pratt. "Final Move" is a more subdued version with similar kaleidoscope synth. Another notable is Ellis-Bextor's English accent, particularly on "By Chance."
