    A worthy addition to any neo-soul set. [4 Apr 2003, p.100]

    They did it again! Now, I am sure the first albim was slept on. This album is so good, it now becomes a problem if you do not get the lyrics. They did it again! Now, I am sure the first albim was slept on.

And that is quite an acomplishment. Merci Celia et Helene. Expand
