AllMusic Review by

Worst part about this album? The cover art. The title doesn't help much either: too generic. The good news is that Ilona's music is exciting and energetic, and while it's not groundbreaking, it does have a quirk of its own. Ilona's delivery is interesting, smoky, and run through filters that chop, dice, and slice to perfection. The way her voice is presented is the creative flip side to the artwork and the great hook of the album; check the moody "Anticipation" for proof. The music doesn't break any Euro-dance rules, keeping it simple and the message positive, but the effort and ambition keep the album fresh throughout.
