Cheryl Bliss' second album strikes me as being less ethereal than her debut and more grounded. It's still utterly gorgeous and her voice is angelic. "Last Chance" is impressively layered and the chorus is just beautiful. "Wild Wild World" is a fine example of her new, more wide screen approach. It's got a big, lush sound and is still dreamy and sweet. "Ultrabrite" is assertive and sunny in an Aimee Mann fashion. The lovely "Sleep Well Tonight" is just a wonderful song. This is a fabulous record. (email@example.com)
