    As good as the first

    This album is overlooked. Cruizin' for Bruzin gets a lot of airplay on KWJZ in Seattle. When I am feeling down and working hard, I pull up all of the Basia music and the stress of work falls away.
    Her new CD just arrived and it will be great to do a review on it.

    Not the Best

    I love Basia, but I did not like this CD. It didn't pull me in like Time & Tide did.
