On her second album, Michelle Gaye backs away from the sultry dance-pop stylings of her debut to concentrate on a calm, mature variation on laidback soul for Sensational. While Gaye is in strong voice throughout the record and the album has an alluring, classy production, the material is generally colorless, relying more on style than substance. And while that makes for good background music, it doesn't necessarily make Sensational the seductive mood music it intends to be.
