    Fourth Corner establishes Whitley as a sophisticated, mature songwriter and a passionate vocalist only beginning to realize her powers.

    The songs are riddled with so much cliché, musically and lyrically, you’ll be screaming for something, anything unexpected to happen.

    Whitley's is an unconventional neo-soul debut. [Apr 2013, p.98]

    It’s a confidently eccentric album, never quite settling on any one approach.

    For now, an engaging debut. [No. 95, p.60]

    Her mercurial, dramatic songs aren’t tied to the standard forms or plain rhetoric of the blues or pop. Her melodies hop and swoop asymmetrically, and most of them ride choppy patterns of distorted guitars, played and layered by Ms. Whitley.

    Fourth Corner is one of those rare releases that leaves its listeners wanting more.
  8. 80
    As sole songwriter, singer and co-producer, Whitely is astonishingly mature for her first album, but assistance from keyboardist Thomas Bartlett whose piano is featured on many of the soaring ballads that dominate the set brings depth and intensity.
