    While her wailing contemporaries go off the rails with exaggeration, Braxton merely tightens her groove and rides these mellow, meaty melodies. [#13, p.91]
  2. If there's any problem with More Than a Woman, Toni Braxton's fourth album, it's that its so consistent, so much a continuation of its predecessor, Heat, that it may be hard to pinpoint distinctive characteristics.
  3. Despite a late lapse into mediocrity, the good here far outshines the bland. [Feb 2003, p.96]
  4. But if she has sudden hip-hop pretensions, it's low=key hip-hop, th electronic throbs providing a surprisingly suitable bed for her controlled boudoir cooing. [22 Nov 2002, p.78]
  5. Braxton has gotten brave and ratcheted-up both the attitude and tempo.
  6. All this anger's not just therapeutic--it also makes her transition to hard hip-hop diva seem sensible, instead of just a marketing move, by grounding it in something real.
  7. In her bid to be a little bit of everything for everyone, some of the unique flavor that has made her a star is sadly diminished.
  8. It's so predictable and so painfully trendy that More Than a Woman might as well have a former Mouseketeer's face on the cover.
