The Sun Shines Again

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
During the 2000s, few R&B singers were put through the industry ringer like Sunshine Anderson. Her debut reached the Top Five of the Billboard 200, yet she fell victim to a label merger, a shelved album, and a severely delayed but ultimately released follow-up that was not given much of a promotional push. She also went through enough personal troubles to fill a novel.

Anderson co-wrote three of the album's highlights. "Life Back" is clearly autobiographical, too open and detailed -- and more matter-of-fact than embittered -- to be the least bit fabricated. The other two -- the album's last two tracks, both of which are as seductive as anything else she has recorded -- further demonstrate that the singer has clearly moved past her troubles. While the album is not likely to make Anderson more popular than ever, it's a triumph -- a fan-pleasing one, at that.
