    Canadian version with one bonus track.
    He's updated both his trademark big hair and his sound, which now includes hip hop beats and samples, but Lionel Ritchie's first album of the 21st century still sounds as melodic, and as harmonically complex, as anything he's done before, and the lyrics are just as heartfelt. "Angel," the album's single, for example, sounds right at home (particularly rhythmically) with anything else on the radio in 2001, but if you really listen you'll hear a classic Ritchie ballad that would have worked equally well during his '80s heyday.
    Elsewhere, there's a pronounced Latin influence on several of the songs such as "Cinderella," "Dance the Night Away," and "Don't You Ever Go Away." The album ends rousingly with the anthemic "Don't Stop the Music."
