Comments:

Alana Cahoon's new effort is smooth and very easy on the ears. She has a strong voice that she puts to good use on these songs. The opening title song has some of Sade's polished warmth. The version of the oft-covered "Fever" sounds fresh and cool in her capable hands. "Suu Kyi" is a funky tribute to the heroic An San Suu Kyi that resonates deeply. Alana Cahoon has made a strong album. (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
