Angela Bofill never reached her pinnacle as an artist. While her talents as a writer, singer and producer were excellent, the forces directing her career made some questionable decisions, and this album is a good example. This album, more than any other, lacks quality production. Although Narada Michael Walden is known for producing great crossover tunes, he comes up short on this project. Every selection, save the ballad "I'm on Your Side," is uptempo, and an imitation of the next. The project is just shy of shoddy as the music inundates Bofill's attempts to vocally salvage some lackluster songs. "I'm on Your Side" is the only bright spot, and it sealed the Top 20 on the Billboard R&B charts. As it was upon its release, this song remains a standard within the R&B genre.
