Detroit bred Terrence Parker can produce soulful house records as deep as his Chicago contemporaries. While most tracks on this record revolve around the theme of a repeating piano vamp (as do almost all of Parker's tracks), it contains several moments of inspiration, the most striking being the sleazy preacher vocals of "Jessica," where the narrator ask the young lady to "take you left leg/and wrap it right around here." Despite the redundancy of many of these selections, Parker is still at his strongest when producing these disco ball gems. The feel-good sentiments of "Love Got Me High" and "I've Got 2 Be Happy" are far more effective on the dancefloor than Parkers' attempts at boudoir music, "White Zinfandel" and "Dolphins," could ever be in the bedroom. Parker definitely has his own signature to write on house music, though it doesn't quite succeeding as a coherent album.
