(5 out of 5 stars)

"Randy Crawford lets loose on this recording and that is a welcomed suprise. From the gripping "I stand accused" to the sad ballad "Nobody" you'll find her in great form and power! This soulful release will have you begging for more. At 11 songs it is simply not enough.

Another standout is the optimistic and upbeat "Declaration of love". Randy is known for being a subtle vocalist at times, but she lets it all hang out on the wrenching "Blue mood" and bitter "I hope you'll be very unhappy without me".

The true gem is her version of Marvin Gaye's "Just to keep you satisfied". What starts out as a low key romantic pleading Randy Crawford turns into a soulful mourn. This gives the original a run for its money. She stays true to the arrangement but gives it a female twist that cannot be rivaled. Well done!"
