    Muldrow’s wonderfully flighty reverberations allow the listener to grow, to mature with her, to continually learn and blossom and thrive through the music.
  2. Kings Ballad doesn’t have quite as many killer tracks [as "Umsindo"], but it may ultimately be a more entertaining experience.
  3. The energy is, as ever, uniformly positive, albeit with a spirit that is more commonly playful, as on “Simple Advice” (loaded with so much kinetic percussion that it resembles a go-go band’s warm-up session), “Summer Love” (a lighthearted duet with Perkins over crawling, “Cutie Pie”-like machine funk), and “Room Punk!” (45 seconds of happily throwaway pop-punk).

    Kings Ballad marks the natural progression of a remarkable artist-in-residency.
  5. Kings Ballad still doesn't meet all the expectations Muldrow may have initially inspired, but it's a positive, measured sign that there's more to come.
