Notes: Ex-member of All Saints, Louise Nurding with an unremarkable set of standard pop love songs, the best being the vaguely raunchy title track. Engineer Ren Swan also worked on The Glam Metal Detectives' 'Everybody Up!' and there's no getting away from Luis Jardim (cf. Aura and numerous albums with Horn). (HP, 15 Sep 01)
