    Loved this Album back in the day.
    10 Years ago I remember Listening to this over the weekend then having it in my head all through the next week doing my Year 10 exams.

    Holly went really 'electro' influenced for this album and It remains one of my all time favourites (similar to Dannii Minogue's Neon Nights album released earlier in 2003) of that kindof genre.

    I was a big fan of hers and it would've been great to see her continue with music after this (I think she did a soundtrack song and stuff here and there but never back to the full on releasing an album), but I think maybe the whole court case with her former manager plus the album not really doing that well (The title track the only single released) mightve put her off and she started focusing more on going back to acting.

    I remember there being a radio comp to be an extra in her second single video, but it mustve been scrapped. I always thought Desire would've been the perfect choice as a follow up single, and imagined a nighttime clip in the sand dunes with cars for some reason.

    Anyway I think its an underrated pop album. Any of you guys fans?

    The State of Mind video was interesting too. Basically it was Holly being a badass singing at some club then going to be some voyeuristic model or something in the morning.

    I own the single! I listened to some of her stuff a few weeks ago and it wasn't good. Kiss Kiss just sounds like a mess.

    I remember clearly that Desire was slated as the second single and I think she even did some UK tv performances of it, but I assume that got canned because it was too similar to State Of Mind.

    Wikipedia says that Curious was the cancelled second single.

    However my favourite track by far and one of my fave songs of all time is Roll Over. No idea why that wasn't the single choice, I think it could have been huge.
    This ain't gon be easy

    This album is pop MASTERPIECE!!!! Here my favourites are: Everything I Hate, Desire, Roll Over and Curious.

    This deserved to be a monster seller, but she was definitely way ahead of the time. :(

    It's a crime this and "Come and Get It" by Rachel Stevens were huge flops. :x
