Gala was one of the first pop stars to graft a classical Italian outlook onto old-school acid techno. With a past including art school and a name taken from Salvador Dali's wife, her background contrasted sharply with the Dubstar dance-pop of hits like "Let a Boy Cry" and "Freed from Desire" as well as her slightly androgynous good looks and flat, nasal singing style. The Gipsy Kings' Tonino Baliardo appeared on "Summer Eclipse," and the title track is a delightful second summer-of-love jam, but Gala lacked confidence and range.
