Though this CD isn't in a class with Pizzazz or Posh, sleek R&B/pop tunes like "I Do," "My Heart, Your Heart" and "Tell Me" showed that the L.A. native could still hold her own as a singer, composer and producer. Rushen experiments with hip-hop influences on a few selections, but on the whole, the disc is quite similar to her Elektra output. While Anything didn't return Rushen to the top of the R&B charts, her more devoted fans were glad to see her back in the studio.
