In her slippery, velvety tone, Randy Crawford blossoms on this diverse cast of songs, which includes jazz, dance, pop, and a little bit of boogie. She does nothing fancy or unique other than address these lyrically sound numbers with good old-fashioned singing. Crawford softly croons through the lead track "I'm Glad There Is You" accompanied by only a piano. She follows suit on songs like "Can We Bring It Back" and "Year After Year." They too are tranquil numbers that prey upon the tenderness of the heart. Her up-tempo numbers like "Keep Me Loving You" and "Elusive Boogie" expose Crawford's spirited side. Not flamboyant with her vocals, her mellow yet illuminating style is pleasing, as is the album's lyrical content.
