We gave it a B+

Most dance-music debut albums are one-hit blunders. Not Kristine W’s. Clubgoers have already embraced Land of the Living‘s infectious anthems ”Feel What You Want” and ”One More Try.” Now they can work up a sweat to the ebullient title track and ”Let Me In.” When she isn’t packing a soulful wallop, the singer quietly seduces, conjuring up a gospel-tinged slow groove on ”Sweet Mercy Me.” She gets bonus points for cowriting her material. Watch your back, Madonna. B+
