Waters never managed to build on the crossover success of her first single, "Gypsy Woman," though her efforts this time around suggest she's still up to the challenge. The sing-song, nursery rhyme-patterned "Mamma Told Me" is a catchy tune, and the lingering buzz in the clubs from her Dennis Rodman collaboration "Just a Freak" (included here) could be extended to "Body Music." A too-literal cover of Prince's "Uptown" isn't a high point, but her NBA At 50 anthem "Say ... If You Feel Alright" is a blast. --Jeff Bateman

"Crystal is a good artist and unfortunately so much underrated. Here you find a good dance album with much more than "la da dee"(gypsy woman) tracks. She did a great new version of Dead or Alive's "You spin me around". The known singles are Just a Freak and Say...If You Feel Alright . It's a good CD e.g. for you car - it keeps you awake :)"
That "difficult" third album syndrome...

"Although this is not Crystal Waters' best offering to date, I think
the previous reviews have been a bit harsh. Her first album, "Surprise", was an interesting introduction to her talents
where as her 2nd, "Storyteller" showed her natural progression
as a songwriter with various catchy, yet thoughtful tracks. I agree
her voice isn't the best but at least Crystal tells it like it is!! when it
comes to life or love and i'd rather listen to Crystal than say,
Whitney,Celine or the dreaded (gulp!) Mariah, all squeaking like
mice and a screamin' and a hollerin' down the microphone. Back
to this album, As I said before not her best but Crystal has
at least made Prince's old "Uptown" her own (one of the better
Prince cover versions of recent years). What on earth Dennis
Rodman is doing on this however is a mystery best left uncovered
but there you go. I like "Spin me" and "Easy" (this latter track is
dead funky). If you like Crystal Waters then this is still a must as at
least she has tried to move on with each album. It's what she's
going to do next that's gonna be really interesting..."
Just a freak.

"much like rock's favorite icelandic diva, björk, crystal waters is often misunderstood and, therefore, dismissed. at times, her vocals are slightly flat and/or off key, they're almost always repetitive, and lyrics cover topics as disperate as homelessness, sex and parties. the youngest person to ever be inducted into the poetry society of america, crystal waters knows exactly what she's doing, both lyrically and vocally. for those still uncomfortable with her unusually vocal stylings and production techniques, _crystal waters_ is a wonderful introduction to this diva's work. less idiosyncratic than previous albums, _crystal waters_ has a slightly more polished and party-oriented feel, making it more accessible to the average listener. highlights include "say...if you feel alright" and "easy"."
