All Music Guide - Kelvin Hayes
The banal title fronts a disappointing debut from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, fusing Human League synth with beats and cinematic strings ("Take Me Home"/"Murder on the Dancefloor"). Nothing, though, really comes close to matching the shimmering highlight, "Murder on the Dancefloor," which guests bass genius Guy Pratt. "Final Move" is a more subdued version with similar kaleidoscope synth. Another notable is Ellis-Bextor's English accent, particularly on "By Chance."

    A MUST BUY !

    Brilliant talent has arrived. Yes Ms Baxter has shone amongst the stars. This great album makes you happy. She has a tantalizing voice that makes my heart fly like a butterfly.

    Ever since I first heard Murder on the Dancefloor I have been searching for her CD. Her CD is a mix of emotions. Some of her songs makes you happy while some other makes you confused or even sad. There's no correct way to describe her talent but sure enough her music is inspirational.
