In “Conqueror” she sounded like female version of Sam Smith and even the melody and the way she sang the song it sounded like “I’m Not The Only One.” It’s nineties groove once again in “Something Good” and very inviting to sway it on the dance floor like the way Cece Peniston, Zhane, M People did during those days. “Make Her To Say(Beat It Up) is quite refreshing as it combines R and B, dance, and tribal music and there you go sexy female rapping has never been so good, take that Madonna.

Even in filler song like “Time Share,” Estelle managed to put certain character to the song, in this case, it projects sexiness to downplay the aggressive rap vocals provided by the male rapper in this song. “The Same” is one song that will eventually find its way to ambient music anthology; proving once again that Estelle is versatile in terms of vocal performance. “She Will Love” is one example of how to use reggae as musical background without being generic.

“Silly Girls” is not an attempt for Estelle to be like Diana Ross after she left The Supremes. This song just happens to have seventies groove and just works remarkably well with her voice. You will really love her voice in “Gotcha Love,” it has whisper quality but still powerful and rendered even more passionate with piano background.

With these good songs in this record, Estelle provided good reasons to buy or download her album. I rate this one 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.
