"This album was purchased as a casette; based on that this review will come in two parts.
Side One of the cassette can be best described as the Dance Side. The album has the Chicago Sound all through it (particularly on the Dance Side) and is smokin' right from the start. The title song (Track One) was an immediate hit for the independent Chicago label ID Records. Small wonder it was picked up by a major label. The "house train" keeps moving with "Take My Advice" which is a good follow-up tune. The one that really grabbed me was the next track. "A Lttle Bit More" is a slower tempo but is still a House tune and the feel of the song is phat! The same can be said of the very next track "Take Me To The Groove". These two songs have awesome background vocals by Kym as well as a couple of artists from the ID Records camp -- Donell Rush and Chante Savage. "One Look" is the closer of Side One and is dynamic as well.
The R&B Side is the description of Side Two and what a way to showcase Ms Sims' versatility. "I Found Love" and "Should Have Known Better" are uptempo jams that would likely be heard at an outdoor barbecue. "In My Eyes" is a good ballad as is "I Can't Stop", which was probably thrown in for good measure (having 2 slow jams is a good way to showcase talent). "Never Shoulda Let You Go" is another hot party jam. But, the best way to close out the album is with the title song (again). This time the title track gets a different spin with the Soul Mix.
A few footnotes regarding the architect of this album, Steve "Silk" Hurley:
- pioneering Chicago DJ who, along with Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, helped shape the House Music scene in the 80's
- accomplished DJ, artist, producer, remixer and songwriter
- one of a few Chicago-based DJs to strike a deal with a major label
Don't sleep on this album -- get in any format possible!"

"I discovered this girl a bit late but this album really still works today. Chantay Savage wrote plenty of the songs on it and it has an R&B feeling. Kym sings pretty well. It includes all her early 90s hits and also nice slow songs. Kym is still around. Check her out if you can :) Kym wrote songs for Tene Williams and Jamie Loring as well."
