  1. Just A Little Lovin' is a stark reminder of Lynne's empathetic skill as an interpreter.
  2. Lynne has crafted a disc that--while not exactly transcendent--still manages to go to emotional places that remain unattainable to your run-of-the-mill pop vocalists.

    Such a bad idea. Such a stunning result. [Mar 2008, p.114]
  4. Instead of paying tribute as concept, Lynne owns these songs, taking inspiration from the renowned blue-eyed soul singer to create her own sober renditions of indelible melodies from the '60s and '70s.
  5. Daring it's not, but it pays homage to a hero without getting indulgent or falling into rote imitation.
  6. Lynne doesn't mimic though, taking nine tunes Springfield sang, along with one original in the spirit, and interprets them in a manner that's elegant, if not always satisfying.
  7. It doesn't work, such superior pop items as 'Just A little Lovin'' and 'The Look Of Love' being reduced to an uninspired yawn. [Mar 2008, p.107]
