The ballad “Blood Rushin' Thru My Veins” is again laced with a Spanish guitar of the serenading sort. The deep bass and haunting keys and shuffling beats act as a dramatic backdrop for Nikita to really give us a strong vocal performance. This is a Lady who can really, truly sing and it's on these cuts that she shines brighter than a supernova. The dancer “Enough Is Enough” is one of the highlights. Again, her superb voice is totally in control over the slap bass and steppers groove. I could imagine this popping up on a Togetherness compilation as it definitely should appeal to connoisseurs of this kind of groove. I have to also heap praise on another tasty uptempo number called “Mmm”; a funkier effort and sassier in delivery too. Savour this, then move onto the GORGEOUS ballad “Because Of You”. The finger-clicking beats, synth, Spanish guitar and sheer warmth that emanates from the backing vocals do everything to win me over. I am very, very please to see this Lady return on top form and I shall be digging out her Motown CD very soon to soak up more of this wonderfully talented Lady.
