    ''Dirty Little Secret'' is an honest pleasure

    After experiencing Stella Soleil as candy raver in her debut album, ''Drown Me in You'', and as glitter angel with an attitude in her second, ''Soularium'', it is refreshing and pleasantly unsettling to witness another self-transformation...Surprise! Now this changeling is cool platinum. These songs are graceful, inspired, clean, clear and succeed in piercing the heart. Stella is a natural who performs seemingly without effort, a fish in water. Sexy and brazen, she shoots straight from the hip. Infectious, danceable rhythms fit like your favorite shirt. Street wise without being cynical, erotic and mysterious, Stella's ''Dirty Little Secret'' is an honest pleasure.

    Move out of the way Christina and Britney.....

    Dirty Little Secret is an amazing album. I love it, it hasn't left my CD player. I have had all of my friends listen to it and they love it. I love Stella's songs, I really feel I can relate to them and her music has always helped me cope, from her album Drown Me In You to Soularium, and now to Dirty Little Secret. She has an amazing outlook on life and you can see that through her songs, through her personality on this album. I am very pleased with the album and I advise if you are thinking about buying the album, don't think about it, just do it, you will be glad you did.

    Stella's Secrets out...

    and its amazing!!!! its definitely pop, but its a not like anything i've heard before. 'You' is absolutly beautiful, and completely unique. ''Angel Face'' and ''Pretty Young Thing'' are an anmasing combination of creative lyrics and music. this is one of the most emotional albums i have ever heard, and the best part is that everything is true. the things that she is talking about are things that everyone knows about. its perfect for relaxing, and great for picking you up when your down.
