AllMusic Review by

Working off the critical success of her 1992 album Full Time Love, with this 1996 effort Ann Peebles proves that Full Time Love was no fluke. With a voice that has lost none of the power or seduction of her glory days at Hi Records, Peebles blasts through uptempo numbers such as "I'm Yours" and the title track, a duet with the great Mavis Staples. Even more amazing is the seven-song medley that comprises the middle of the album. Filled with her old hits ("Walk Away"), brilliant cover renditions ("I Pity the Fool") and new compositions ("Ninety-Nine Pounds"), the medley is a testament not only to husband Don Bryant's production skills, but to the artistry and talent of the assembled musicians (most of all Peebles).
