    It is not reinventing the pop wheel but everything is done with an appealing combination of taste and passion.

    The soul chanteuse unspools 11 gorgeous tracks. [1/8 Jun 2012, p.117]

    An album, that restores to R&B some of the adult concerns that powered the genre through its '70s golden era.

    Tugging profoundly on bittersweet 60s soul and Motown, Heaven is a fine album.

    Ferguson is no innovator, but her voice makes the world a slightly nicer place.

    [An] impressive debut album.
  7. Ferguson's smoky tones recall the young Aretha Franklin at her more restrained, [but] it's all ever so slightly boring.

    This album just sounds so great. It's like so hard for me to choose a single track that I don't like. Flawless, even better than Adele or Amy Winehouse IMO. :D Expand

    A nice debut album from Rebecca with some really nice tracks. 'Nothing's Real But Love' lead the album but surprisngly there are better songs on there, as well as on the deluxe edition also. Expand

    All of these new R&B artists don't have the same soul feeling like early Stevie Wonder or Anita Baker. None of them have any stand out hits . I feel a certain weakness in their R&B where there should be solid hits. I have a yearning to want to like this music, but they are coming up just a bit short. Sorry... Collapse
