Come into My Life is the debut studio album[2] by Italian dance music singer Gala, released in November 1997. The album was recorded at the Planet Studio[3] in Milan, Italy. Four singles[4] were released: "Come into My Life", "Freed from Desire", "Suddenly" and "Let a Boy Cry".

Reception[edit]

The UK channel 4 teletext page 'Planet Sound' gave the album 3 out of 5, praising Gala for the "surprising variety". Of the few high-profile reviews available to read online, the Allmusic review by Dean Carlson awarded the album 1.5 stars stating "Gala was one of the first pop stars to graft a classical Italian outlook onto old-school acid techno. With a past including art school and a name taken from Salvador Dalí's wife, Gala's background contrasted sharply with the Dubstar dance-pop of hits like "Let a Boy Cry" and "Freed From Desire" as well as her slightly androgynous good looks and flat, nasal singing style.

The Gipsy Kings' Tonino Baliardo appeared on "Summer Eclipse", and the title track is a delightful second summer-of-love jam, but Gala lacked confidence and range.".[5]
