Here is my track by track review:

1. Intro

Can't really rate the intro LoL

2. So Cool...Hollywood 10/10

Wow. This song is so good the beginning has such a strong impact. Very strong and very good flow. Her voice is really good on it and I just love it.

3. In It For The Money (F/ Snoop Dogg) 10/10

Hot flo. Perfect match. The beat is just sick one of them summer ridahs. Amazing.

4. Cute Boy 10/10

So smooth. Aww i wanna be under a palm tree. Smooth reggae track. Lyrics are nice. Just one of those songs you have to enjoy.

5. She's Like The Wind (F/ Tony Sunshine) 10/10

Lumidee has some really good flow on this song. The remake is the best one yet. This song is classic. Tony's voice is perfect and this is the first single from the album.

6. Feel Like Making Love (F/ Shaggy) 10/10

Another enjoyable reggae track. But this one has something special about it. I believe its the tone Lumidee has in her voice. It perfect and Shaggy just adds to the reggae effect. AMAZING.

7. Stuck On You 9/10

Lumidee takes it down a notch with this slow R&B joint. Very good track smooth and good meaning.

8. Caught Up 8/10

Fairly different. Beat is good but there is something missing. Still hot.

9. Crazy (F/ Pitbull) 10/10

Damn just get up and dance. With this fast dancehall riddim this joint will get you on your feet in no time. Then Pitbull comes in with his funny rhymes. Very hot.

10. Could Be Anything 9/10

I love her flow on this track. Lumidee gives us some of her rap on it but you get the same sense you get from her song thats on this c.d. "Caught Up".

11. You Got Me (F/ N.O.R.E.

As expected May 5 2007
By Amanda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This former one-hit wonder from Connecticut can now amend and extend her resume by one more hit with the first single from her second album. The single "She's Like the Wind" was originally performed by Patrick Swayze, and was also covered by David "The Hoff" Hasselhoff, but this version coverts a part of the song to rap and features vocals by Tony Sunshine.

Another song that I found interesting was the duet with Shaggy, covering the Roberta Flack hit "Feel Like Making Love", but with a reggae spin. Lumidee's vocals match well with Shaggy on this one, which I actually prefer to the first single. A good dance track is "Crazy" featuring Pitbull, and you might also like "The Whistle Song" featuring Wyclef Jean. Other fairly good tracks are "Cute Boy" and "Did You Imagine".

This album is okay, largely due to the guest artistes, but not exactly outstanding, which is precisely what we expected. Rated: 3.5 stars

Not so unexpected June 10 2007
By Anthony Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lumidee came out back in 2003 with a song called "Never Leave You". Although she really couldn't sing, the song became a hit anyway, possibly due to the fact that all songs featuring that beat were getting enormous airplay (Sean Paul's "Get Busy"; Wayne Wonder's "No Letting Go"). After her follow-up single "Crashin' a Party" went absolutely nowhere, she disappeared. But now she re-emerges with Unexpected.

Lumidee's singing is a tad better, but she still isn't quite there. But much of the time she RAPS on here, and she's not that great at THAT either. Actually, she doesn't sound terrible, but, well, she doesn't sound any different from any other female MC. This is especially shown on the disposable "So Cool...Hollywood".

The only song that really stands out to me is "Stuck On You" (except for in the chorus where she says: "It's true/I can't get past it too"; did we not get As in English class?). Most of the rest of the songs are forgettable, like "Passin' Thru", "He Told Me" and "Caught Up"; and "Cute Boy" is a song I wish I COULD forget. Guest rappers also fail to add life to the songs, like N.O.R.E. ("You Got Me"), Snoop Dogg ("In It For the Money"), and Jim Jones ("I'm Up"). There are also some badly done clubbish makeovers to classic songs, like Roberta Flack's "Feel Like Makin' Love" and Patrick Swayze's "She's Like the Wind" (featuring Shaggy and Tony Sunshine, respectively).

Speaking of that, there is an obligatory end-of-album Spanglish-version-of-the-first-single on here. I can't really call this sophomore album from Lumidee unexpected because that would suggest that I was anticipating it to be good. Yeah, it's better than Almost Famous, but that really ain't saying much.

she still sucks April 20 2007
By Nourisha K. Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
no offense but this girl has little talent and i don't understand why this album came out. uh ohh sucked too. don't understand why this age group can't grasp the concept of real music. they hear so much crap they take the less of all the evils and call it great.

i think people will still bump some of this cd because the beats are nice. but unless you can turn the beat up load enough to drown out her failed singing attempts, you'll be assaulting your ears needlessly. take my advice and stay away unless you feel the need to drown your sorrows in a pathetically, schizophrenic mix of music.

10. Could Be Anything 9/10

I love her flow on this track. Lumidee gives us some of her rap on it but you get the same sense you get from her song thats on this c.d. "Caught Up".

11. You Got Me (F/ N.O.R.E.) 10/10

One of my favorites on this track. It has "ABC, 123" flow. Love it. This whole song is amazing down till the last second. N.O.R.E. actually does really good on this one.

12. The Whistle Song (8/10)

Ya ok. Um the title kinda of gives us the effect of a really good track but its ok. Wyclef helps on this one. Its good but it just doesnt catch to me. If you like Wyclefs stuff you will definitly like this.

13. I'm Up (F/ Jim Jones) 10/10

Love the little kid-chipmunk voice. Love this gangsta joint. Jim Jones adds his "BALLIN" flow to this one and it works out. HOT

14. He Told Me 10/10

Yeah some more reggae. Lumidee is rapping on this one alot. Its so good, her flow is good and the chorus is perfect.

15. Did You Imagine 10/10

Now this is the song of the album. Reggaeton with a touch of smooth reggae. Perfect mix. Lumidee does such a good job singing this track. Anyone will like this track with its latin tinged guitar strings.

16. Passin' Thru 10/10

Love the feeling this song gives you. Lumidee sends a message across about people she has lost and how she is coaping with it. Just an uplifting song with a sweet beat.

Bonus: She's Like The Wind (F/ Tony Sunshine) (Spanglish Version) 10/10

Just like the original its so hot but with the spanish it gives it another awsome effect.

Over all Rating: 96/100

Defintily recommended. Go out and buy it its worth it.
a grab bag of what works in pop music July 30 2007
By Elevate Difference - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like many American women my age, I have a passion for the phenomenon that was Dirty Dancing. The style, the music and, of course, the dancing were all extremely influential on me and my fellow Catholic school girlfriends. We danced in the aisles of the movie theatre and recited the dialogue at countless slumber parties.

One sunny day this spring I was driving along and heard a pop-style R&B version of Patrick Swayze's "She's Like The Wind" blasting through my speakers! I rolled the window down and reminisced about summers of my youth. The cover, by Lumidee, who you may remember from last year's summer jam "Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)," is performed alongside Tony Sunshine. They both do a great job channeling the spirit of Johnny and Baby, and, while it includes several new rap sections, it's impossible to not sing along. I admit that I struggled for a minute with my instinct to love the song, thinking most young people who hear this won't even know that it's a cover. Realizing this way of thinking made me sound like an old timer, I went on to spread the word about this perfect summer jam.

Because I was so sold on the first single, I was excited to hear the entire album, but found it empty. Let's be real, it doesn't speak highly of a studio album when the best song on it is a cover. This is the epitome of what can be bad about commercial radio. It sounds like the producers randomly reached into a grab bag of what works in pop music: hot young woman, guest stars like Snoop Dogg and Shaggy, dependable, safe dance beats and overly produced and altered vocals. It has no artistic integrity and feels soulless, ironic for an R&B album. In the song, "In It For The Money," she goes on about how her main motivation is - yep, you guessed it! - Money. In the spirit of valuing your own dollars, take yours and invest them in real, original talent like Lil' Mama.
