    Feel-good soul-pop, melodic grrrl-power rhymes, and lush love songs that make even gruff guest Rick Ross sound like a romantic.

    Estelle's thang may not be the most ear-catching or eyebrow-raising out there, but it's as likable as it is listenable.

    Unwanted Chris Brown presence aside, All Of Me is a coherent, concise album that--hearteningly--is most characterised by its creator's overflowing wells of confidence.

    A consistent-not-masterful album like All of Me would still do you some good to hear.

    The end result is a mish-mash of styles that leaves this LP somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean at the turn of the millennium.

    Much of what remains is pleasant and executed with finesse, yet not as memorable as the majority of The 18th Day or Shine.
  7. 40
    The homegrown characteristics of her distinctive style have been all but washed away in a flood of R&B clich├ęs on All of Me, a routine blend of fidgety grooves and tiresome ruminations on life and love.

    An descent album, but her previous album, Shine, was better. I love that she collaborated with Rick Ross and Janelle Monae. I also love the small skits. Probably not the best R&B album, but it's a descent album. Collapse

    The third album in the Estelle's career - "All Of Me" is a compilation of catchy songs. Aside from the fact of short musical interludes - which are more curiosity than actually a track - album contains four singles, half of which keeps high level. Soul "Thank You" and "Break My Heart", hip-hop "The Life" or extremely melodic "Speak Ya Mind" from the rest of the material are also remarkable compositions. Expand
