Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 8/6/92, p.59
3 Stars - Good - "..this album [has] a richer, mellower sound and seems calculated to erase the prefix "Ice Cube protegee" from Yo Yo's name.."
Entertainment Weekly - 8/7/92, p.61
"...a much-needed reassertion of feminine dignity from the all-too-misogynistic West Coast rap scene.." - Rating: B+
Musician - 7/92, p.98
"...what makes this album a jewel is the way Yo-Yo not only balances feminist pride with no-nonsense sexual politics, but ties it all to the funkiest beats this side of James Brown..."

Yo-Yo's positive (but not simplistic or naive) messages regarding female sexuality, self-esteem and achievement were grounded in hard raps and thudding beats on this album, still her most complete, and effective production. Unfortunately, it seemed that only cutesy material like "You Can't Play with My Yo-Yo" from her first release could get the widespread support and attention necessary for a hit. ~ Ron Wynn
