(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has to be the most consistent of any I have heard in years. From the very first song, MY HEART WON'T LIE, you are compelled and amazed. Special moments are endless, but particularly stellar are her covers of JUST DON'T WANT TO BE LONELY and NEW YORK STATE OF MIND. Here, she displays the height and depth of her incredible range; thick like a milkshake, yet smooth as a Chardonay. The show stopper has GOT to be I JUST HAD TO HEAR YOUR VOICE. Testimony to the truest disposition of love gone but not quite forgotten. Dancers wil be drawn to EASIER TO SAY GOODBYE and the more mellow, LOVER'S HOLIDAY. EVOLUTION is a playful melody that begs us to reconsider everything. Just before she it brings home, she toasts true romance once again with THE DAY I STOP LOVING YOU. Lastly, Oleta inspires you with an uplifting gospel feel on WINDOW OF HOPE. This CD should leave you transfixed. Like a fine culinary experience, it gets better with each bite. BON APETITE!"

"Oleta Adams has one of those voices that reaches down into the depths of your being. She is uniquely talented in her song writing as well. Six songs on this cd are all hers! And if that isn't enough, she also masters the keyboards and piano on all but one of these numbers.

The opening song, "My Heart Won't Lie" is a gorgeous rich ballad that Oleta wrote and sings. Her vocal on "Hold Me For A While" is so gorgeous it will send shivers throughout. Oleta pulls out all of the stops on James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight". This song also features David Sanborn on the alto sax. "When Love Comes To The Rescue" is one of Oleta's best original compositions. There is a wonderful flugelhorn solo by Chuck Findley which is not to be missed! Oleta's original "Easier To Say Goodbye" is a hot cooking revival number that is over 6 1/2 minutes long! This number also features an outstanding guitar solo from Michael Landau (who appears on all songs but one on this cd). And as a bonus, there is a rhythm solo from bassist Freddie Washington and drummer Richie Stevens. "New York State of Mind" oozes with Oleta's sensual singing. And her keyboards smolder! The addition of Chuck Findley on trumpet and Tom Scott on tenor sax just bring the temperature up even further!!

Oleta Adams' brilliant talent shines throughout this cd. Originally recorded in '93, these songs are timeless! Very much a treasure for those who appreciate the finer music in life."
The best singer of soul since Shirley Bassey

"I am a spanish fan to Oleta since 1990 in the spiritual chorus to Tears For Fears's "woman in chains".More later the album "Circle of one" inspired me a lot of feelings - The version of Brenda Russells's "get here" made me cry-.But this album are incredible, all songs are specials, specially "my heart won't lie","when love comes to the rescue"...The production are PERFECT" - Thanks Stewart Levine and all the faboulous musicians -.One doubt:Oleta, Can you play in concert here at Madrid (Spain).-"Creatchy" David Garfield did it with Boz Scaggs.My admiration for you are greatest.
P.D: Sorry for my "bad english""
