The Japanese version of the album contains some of DJ Raps biggest Drum and Bass tracks that were played on dubplate by the top DJs, around 1997-98, yet were never released on vinyl. For some reason only the Japanese version has these tracks. Tracks such as Beats Like This, Hardcore and Spiritual Aura...Contd showcase Raps talent for crafting dancefloor monsters. The rest of the album is DJ Rap showing her songwriting and vocal abilities across a range of styles.

What a dissapointment!
After years of being lured by her spacey drum n' bass and ragga, DJ Rap's first album release in North America churns out pop-rock-radio hit attempts but fails misserably. There's only one song that feels "electronic" but it's more like MTV-style "electronica" mixed with a bit of Methods of Mayhem *shudder*. Mind you, having said that, if you're into The Crystal Method (and I mean you REALLY adore them) then you may enjoy this album. Just dont expect it to move you like her earlier tracks did.
Honey, the California makeover doesnt suit you.

What actually happened with the US release of this album, is that some recordbiz people decided that the US is not up for the heavy Jungle side of Miss Rap. So they replaced the original 4 jungle tracks on this album for some poppier tricks. It didn't really help much and after this DJ Rap wisely returned to her hardcore Jungle style both as recording artist and DJ.

Great Crossover Album!!! Just good pure breakbeat......."Fuck With Your Head" is an amazing track. As a drum & bass/jungle artist her work is no less than amazing, but Learning Curve is a great attempt at "pop/breakbeat". But for her die-hard fans THIS IS NOT DRUM & BASS. If you live in the land of drum and bass, and you can't connect with other forms of electronic music....this album is NOT for you.

The album is mainstream pop/breakbeat, not jungle (or drum'n'bass) like her former releases. Truly the demise of her career.
