The only album released by Nozomi Takao aka Candee, a talented singer who has worked with top musicians such as Tatsuro Yamashita, Mariya Takeuchi, and Masaki Matsubara. Arrangers include TOM Sugiyama, Issei Noro, Kenjiro Sakiya, and Nobuo Kurata. The album features a wide range of songs from city pop to urban funk to mellow ballads, among them, the synth urban funk "Water Front Express", city boogie style"For You", the driving "Break Out" which is typical of Kenjiro Sakiya, and the mellow ballad "Family" are particularly recommended. Original.

山下達郎、竹内まりや、松原正樹などトップミュージシャンと活動してきた実力派シンガー高尾のぞみがリリースした唯一のアルバム。アレンジャーには杉山TOM、野呂一生、崎谷健次郎、倉田信雄などが参加。シティポップ~アーバン・ファンク~メロウ・バラードまで幅広く収録していますが、中でもシンセ・アーバン・ファンク”Water Front Express”、シティ・ブギー”For You”、崎谷健次郎らしいドライヴィンな”Break Out”、メロウ・バラード”Family”、はオススメ。人気も納得の良作です。
