San Francisco native Jocelyn Enriquez released her debut Tommy Boy Records release Jocelyn in 1997. Enriquez's Paula Abdul-like voice is pleasant enough to carry the mostly unremarkable dance-pop tunes on the album, but a few moments truly shine. The Latin-style "Lovely People" is a keeper, the dance club hit "Do You Miss Me" is irresistibly catchy, and she turns the Yazoo ballad "Only You" into engaging house music. The club hit "A Little Bit of Ecstasy" is by far the best track here. The sultry vocal, naughty lyrics, and unpredictable tempo changes make "A Little Bit of Ecstasy" a dancefloor classic along the lines of Donna Summer's "Love to Love You Baby." Unfortunately, Jocelyn is marred by too many schmaltzy ballads. But Jocelyn is generally an entertaining and often captivating listen, as long as the music is directed toward the dancefloor. © William Cooper /TiVo

The title cut rolls out "I Will Survive"'s scenario for a younger woman uncoupling, probably, a shorter-lasting (first?) romance from which Enriquez's protagonist more firmly, with more confidence for the future, tells her honey to step off. "No Way No How," the surest-fire hit (honored with a remix) bumps the equally-youthful pledge of eternal love along a riff to tinge Erasure mildly green."It's No Wonder" carries the startling admission of "I'm not an easy girl to please/Fantasies can be extreme" made all the more curious through the warm, offland delivery and an image of her man as the "Beautiful/Butterfly/Spreads his wings and flies so high..." Track by subsequent track, though, those early distinctive edges peel away leaving pleasant but hardly essential electronic dance music for the club floor under the disco ball or the living room with the lights out; confident, spritely, and likeable, but lacking the urgency, or the transcendent vocal swoops, of, say, Jimmy Sommerville or Erasure's Andy Bell. © Andrew Hamlin /TiVo
