Review[edit]

John Lucas reviewed the album positively, saying this is “Nielsen's first album in English, it is also clearly aimed at a younger market” and “There's no reason why several songs on this album couldn't take flight well beyond the confines of the Swedish pop scene given the right push. A veteran at just 23 years of age, Nielsen has finally emerged as a star with significant potential.” [1]
