    Despite its raft of celebrity collaborators, this inspired album keeps the focus squarely on Faithfull's elegantly weathered voice while drawing lyrical inspiration from her dramatic history. [16 Aug 2002, p.72]
  2. Her best bunch of songs since--not Broken English, that's ridiculous, but Strange Weather or A Child's Adventure.
  3. An album rich in variety, good pop sense, and the unmistakable cool of someone like Faithfull.

    As a cross-generational experiment, Kissin' Time works. [Apr 2002, p.110]
  5. In her music, as in her life, everything revolves around sex - but unseemly as it is for a woman of a certain age to frug bawdily alongside Damon Albarn, Marianne gets away with it.
  6. At times smart, sometimes schlocky, and frequently both, there's an unmistakable hit-seeking aura to Kissin' Time that flirts with Tina Turner's Private Dancer career-resurrection formula without stooping to be conquered by it.

    These songs sound more like her collaborators' than hers. [Mar 2002, p.120]

    It's certainly no Broken English, but still a very good album.
