This average and mostly forgettable synth-funk driven affair features the enduring mid-tempo ballad 'Kisses don't lie'. The Levert mixes of the song from the aborted single have also been included on this reissue as two of the five bonus tracks. The kicker is, they have been sourced from vinyl, instead of the (master tape derived) promo cd.

Like similar reissues of 'Expanded' albums in recent times, the so called 'remastering' only serves as an attempt to obscure vinyl sourced tracks. So it's not such as great reissue, when you listen on a pair of decent speakers instead of earbuds or computer speakers.
