This album features a variety of Motown covers as well as a few tunes that aren’t covers. The “Knife” LP finds the singer (who has a girlishly soulful style of singing la Deniece Williams) putting her spin on several Motown favorites, including the Jackson Five's "Dancing Machine," Michael Jackson's "I'll Be There," Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," and Smokey Robinson's "Don't Mess With Bill."

"Never Can Say Goodbye" was a hit for the Jackson Five and was also embraced by Isaac Hayes and Gloria Gaynor. Original songs such as the reggae-tinged "Sweet Remedy" and the exuberant "Bust My Bubble" -- display Young’s vocals at her best.
