Magness gets her R&B groove going on "Twice As Strong," but gets back to her roots on the clap/stomp rhythm of "I Need A Man." She grooves to the sweet R&B flavor of "Everything Is Alright," before pouring her heart into climbing the slow blues of "Mountain." She ventures into the Americana feel of "Badass" with huge success, before closing with the emotionally filled "Standing."
