"Syleena Johnson has proven time and time again that she has what's missing in the music scene today. Syleena has the look, the skill, and, most importantly, the voice. Her music has been such an inspiration in my life and I highly recommend this album to everyone.
If only Jive Records could promote her more, Syleena would be one of the biggest artists right now. GET THIS ALBUM!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!
Syleena: Amazing and Powerful

"I was not a huge fan of Syleena Johnson when her first album was released. I liked the song "Guess What?" which was the first single from her second album. "Tonight, I'm Gonna Let Go featuring Flipmode Squad" made me take notice. I kept seeing this album everywhere: In friend's collections, Record Stores, Online, etc... so I decided to buy it! I'm so glad I did. Every song is amazing in my opinion. One of the rare albums I can play from beginning to end without skipping. She is simply amazing! Her voice is like silk the way it wraps around the music, so beautifully and effortlessly. A great and true soul singer! The production is top notch. Syleena is one of the rare singers who knows exactly what fits her voice instead of working with famous producers in hope of trying to appeal to a broader audience. This is an album for anyone who is a fan of Great Music!"
Great album with more versatility.

"Like Jill Scott's "Beautifully Human", Syleena Johnson shows a lot more versatility with her voice than she had in the last 2 albums. Just because you can SANG doesn't mean you have to belt every song out. She's using that soft supple side of her voice to make a point. On the intro alone she uses her breathiness to make you feel her urgency. On "Another Relationship" and "Apartment For Rent" she uses the strength in her voice to make you feel the pain.
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! It kills me that the copy protect prevents me from listening to the CD at work. It's the first thing in my CD player, followed by Dwele's "Some Kinda" Charlie Wilson, EWF's "Illumination" and now Jaime Foxx and (I'll admit it) Ray J."
