Carly wanted to show a more sensual side to herself, and the cover and music do just that. With the track "Are You Ticklish" showing off a playful sensuality, "Look Me In the Eyes" is downright sexual in its turn of words. She dances about with "Attitude Dancing" and pokes fun at hubby James' roots in "Playing Possum." All in all, a highly recommended performance from a maturing artist of merit.
