AllMusic Review by

Former theaudience frontgirl and Carol Williams-sampling Spiller star Sophie Ellis Bextor is well aware of what's required for beating the likes of Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton at their own game -- simply take Cher's "Take Me Home" and add one disco beat circa ABBA's "Fernando," being mindful to avoid its cocaine harmonies and the air of free love (so not really "Fernando" at all), techno-fy it with random fiddly bits, sing with the breathless detachment of someone getting a massage from a lumberjack, and chuck in some remixes just so everybody knows that you're not utterly out of step. Like Moloko's "Sing It Back," except without the intrigue.
