Billboard - June 26, 1993

New album marks Lauper's metamorphosis from the fun-loving, she-bopping squealer who broke through in the early '80s to a mature artist with admirable range and depth. Echoes of early hit "Time After Time" ring through ballads such as first single "Who Let In The Rain." Other highlights are "A Past Hate," an uplifting torch song featuring Hugh Masekela on flugelhorn and chants; "Lies," a new-wave cut redolent of early Siouxsie & the Banshees; "Feels Like Christmas," a rocker with a Celtic feel, and one of a few tracks co-written with members of the Hooters; and "Like I Used To," a hybrid of Madonna-style pop and vintage Motown.
