Benjamin Diamond's first album is a fairly successful Disco-Pop album that gives him his own definitive sound, away from the French House sound of Stardust's huge hit "Music Sounds Better With You". All the tracks have an electro-disco feel and are fairly well-composed. Not everything is a hit here and none of the tracks aside from maybe Little Scare REALLY stand out, but all the songs are composed in the same style, which is good. The best tracks on the original album are Little Scare, Strange Attitude, and Playin' With Myself. They're very danceable, and yet relaxing. This is an album you can dance to and still chill out to in your living room, very versatile. There is also a hidden track, after Read in Your Mind, a softer guitar-based pop song. Overall a fairly solid album. It's not amazing, but it gave Benjamin Diamond a rather distinctive sound.

The second CD in this Limited Edition is filled with some really great goodies as well. Fit Your Heart is one of my favorite Benjamin Diamond songs, and I feel it should have been on the original album rather than just be a single. Outsider is a pretty good tune as well. And Todd Edwards' remix of Little Scare is simply great fare from him as usual. And the real gem of a remix here is Joey Negro's remix of "In Your Arms (We Gonna Make It) which turns the fairly bland track from the original album into an AWESOME disco house track.

Overall, a great album, definitely pick it up. It's not going to sound like "Music Sounds Better With You" or any other French House fare, rather it's a very unique Disco pop album by a great vocalist.
