…an album that in many ways is more rocky than the debut…Yet again Angel Air have done her proud.

…a timely reminder of the power and quality of the former Stone The Crows vocalist

Maggie Bell’s distinctive vocals, raw and lived in, are perfectly suited to this selection of songs.
Hartlepool Mail (March 2006)
While her debut was recorded with stellar session players, this album sees Bell’s touring band supporting her. Consequently, the album has a more liberated feel and more wholehearted contributions, including some delicate organ and guitar playing. It might lack consistency (in particular, leaving the Beatles cover out would have been a wise choice), but there is a good dose of soulful material here to please fans of mainstream 70′s rock. (7/10)

…What she lacked was the songs. At her best, as on the best tracks here, this was something she overcame with inspired cover versions like the wonderfully breathy take on Free’s ‘Wishing Well’, and the ballsy role-reversal of ‘I Saw Him Standing There.’ All this topped off by the addition of Jimmy Page on a couple of tracks.
