AllMusic Review by

Recorded in 1989, this wasn't released in the United States until 1996. Block sounds like she's trying to capture the AOR market on most of this all-original set, in somewhat the same vein as Bonnie Raitt, but less effectively so. Glimpses of her acoustic and blues roots are no more than fleeting, as on "Leavin' Here" or the acoustic guitar instrumental, "Down the Hiway." It's not arresting enough to capture the pop audience, and Block fans who like her bluesy stuff the best might find the slick approach downright alienating.
