    There are several milestones in Kidjo's nearly 30-year recording career; Eve is certainly one of them.

    The songs are crisp, uptempo, concise.

    Bold, visionary and, in places, spine-tingling. [Mar 2014, p.78]

    Consistent from start to finish, Eve capably delivers the goods.

    Inveterate collaborators Dr John and Kairos 4tet also add variety to a somewhat one-paced set.

    Kidjo is in scintillating form. [Mar 2014, p.93]

    If the flavor is international, the beef is still all hers, her skyscraper of a voice dominating all around it. [Mar 2014, p.114]
