    She's still a class act. [Jul 2003, p.118]

    It recollects emotion with a raging tranquillity, artistic objectivity overruling self-pity. [Jul 2003, p.110]
  3. Unfortunately, the album is a bit of a downer from a lyrical standpoint, making something like Jackson Browne's Late For The Sky seem almost upbeat in comparison.
  4. Unfortunately, her melodies are frequently too similar. [13 Jun 2003, p.96]
  5. She has claimed a brand of stylish, postmodern soul singing -- pained but detached; theatrical yet spare -- as uniquely her own, and she presents it here with all the confidence her experience has earned.
  6. Whatever her technical gifts as a vocalist, there remains something chilly and self-satisfied about the woman's brand of soul-baring that makes it awfully hard to swallow. [Jul 2003, p.108]
