3 stars If you listen to this album and her first ones from 1978, there is such a huge difference. Moved from songwriter pop with piano and vocals dominating characteristics to slightly more electronic sounds and less expressive vocal and more variety in arrangements.

Being original and creative is the common denominator, though.

The title track is a quite a laid-back track with Celtic influences whereas "Love and Anger" has a worldbeat/African rhythms. "The fog" is rich orchestral elements; the melody is quite subtle and of secondary importance.

"Reaching out" is a dramatic track with finally having vocal as the main contributor. I immediately liked "Heads we're dancing" due to the expressive electronic drums and jazzy guitar chords. "Never be mine" is a great ballad.

Good album with a few progressive rock touches.
