  1. Curtis Mayfield would be proud of both lyrics and her throwback sound.
  2. 'Honey's' squiggly bass line and cute but inane sentiments (''Honey, you so sweet/Sugar got a long way to catch you'') are perhaps the safest, least interesting efforts on the album. Thankfully, Badu spent 10 other tracks showing us exactly what she can do.
  3. Badu's spare, pointillist lyrics are almost constantly folded deep within dense, heavy arrangements
