AllMusic Review by

Although there isn't much here in the form of stark originality, Denise Murray isn't one to shy away from a good melody between adult contemporary pop and today's urban country sound. "Heart Went Boom" and "I Could Get Used to You" appear to be the album's best numbers, but "End of the Line" would be equally as good if not for the slick harmonies on the chorus. None of the songs' content seems to stand apart from most country albums, but there appears to be enough musicianship to get them off the ground. Murray sometimes sounds as if she's torn between singing and speaking, but it's not enough to become annoying. Short and snappy, the only fault may lie in the fact Murray's pretty voice often hides in the background when she could be more dominating. A good sophomore effort but bigger things loom on the horizon.
