  1. Upon first listen Little Honey is quite jarring for all of its textural and production shifts and dodges, but in time it settles into the listener as a mixed collection of decent songs that pack some punch, but no jaw-dropping wallops.
  2. Williams does sound inspired, and there’s an energetic current running through Little Honey that was missing on previous records.

    Little Honey is, then, a something for everyone offering. And a few will be disappointed. [Nov 2008, p.104]
  4. The happy-in-love rockers are doggedly inessential, but ballads such as 'The Knowing' and 'Plan to Marry' redress the balance beautifully.
  5. While Williams generally sticks to her strengths and suppresses most of her more unsavory musical habits, she maintains her curious reliance on tacky AABB rhyme schemes and lyrical clichés.
  6. When she’s hurting, she can still sear. [But] too often here, though, Ms. Williams gets bogged down turning her magnifying glass back on music making.
  7. For an artist whose reputation for painstaking perfectionism and poetic acumen is legendary, Little Honey is too much saccharine and not enough substance.

    For such a distinctive voice, disappointingly run of the mill. [Nov 2008, p.123]
