"Having known and loved Renaissance's music for quite some time, I was uncertain what to expect from Annie on her own. I shouldn't have worried. Beauty, feeling, her amazing voice, everything is still there. The music is a little less classical/folk-influenced and more diverse. "Love Lies Love Dies" annoys me a little.. probably because the word "love" pops up in almost every line. The same is true of "A New Life" - possibly the most cliched song Annie has ever done. But these are minor complaints. When you're in the right mood, this music is simply perfect."
Annie goes down the elevator

"This was one of the biggest disappointments in my music buying history. The first track is acapella which proves she can sing, but we already knew that; can we have some real rock music please! Without rock influences around her Annie drifted into some kind of new age lounge act. It sounds like elevator music. There are about 3 songs I liked which is why I gave it 2 stars.I have never been able to listen to the whole CD in one sitting since I bought it. The word Renaissance on the cover is misleading. That is not what you will get here."

"Annie has always had an angelic voice,is still fabulous,but who are the other members of this "Renaissance"(it is actually credited to Annie Haslam's Renaissance,not as a pure solo effort. While her voice soars,is soothing and this makes for a great meditational piece of music,the musical backing lacks what vintage Renaissance had(chops I guess are out of style). This is more new agey than prog,which is good and bad (for old Renaissance fans).She was never a writer;I don't think she plays any instruments,and I don't see any songwriting credit on this (my copy is a promo). So, who is really behind all this ?"
