The album is already receiving rave reviews:
"There are few artists that release output with the consistency of Shantell Ogden. "Outrun My Faith” has one of the most infectious uptempo choruses you'll come across all year.” says Chris Farlie of w21Music.
"Shantell Ogden ticks every box we have here at RMHQ, not least her distinctive and rather lovely voice; but the way she weaves magic into the construction of her songs, of which no two ever sound the same…” adds Alan Harrison of Rocking Magpie.
