Promotional Singles

Critical reception

Mikael Wood from the Los Angeles Times gave the album a mixed review, saying that it "darts somewhat haphazardly from sleek dance-pop tunes ... to schmaltzy slow jams" but also that "it also feels like an honest showcase of the singer's voice ... its strength lives up to that of her collaborators."[3]

Allmusic's Andy Kellman gave it 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "As a showcase for a teenage powerhouse vocalist, Charice does succeed, but a more balanced mix of heart-heavy and upbeat material would have made the desired Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey comparisons more accurate".[4]

Billboard gave the album a generally positive review, noting that "the set's stylistic shifts--from teen-oriented pop to a touch of rock ("In Love So Deep") to anthemic ballads—ultimately leaves you wondering just which audience Charice is eyeing: her teen peers or their moms," before concluding that "Though it doesn't hit on all cylinders, the album leaves no doubt as to Charice's talent--and promising future."[5]

A review on Towleroad said: "Charice's Diane Warren-penned ballad "Note to God" is a real showstopper. And she throws down the gauntlet on the multi-octave spine tingler "Thank You." Watch your back, Mariah; you’re not the only angel scaling the heavenly heights anymore."[6]
