    No other artist combined such strong streetwise attitude with disarming warmth. She did it from start to finish.

    If some of Teena's mid-80s belters betrayed an eagerness to over-emote, her technique here is more restrained, which suits her voyage into Indo-tinged soul and a few delicious slow jamz. [Mar 2013, p.90]

    It's difficult to tell how much post-production has been done and how much the record truly reflects Marie's artistic vision. Even so, it's a good listen. [Apr 2013, p.90]

    Anyone introduced to her through Beautiful would be hard-pressed to figure out what all the fuss is about, since it reflects neither the vocal virtuosity nor the wide-ranging musical adventurousness of her best work
