  1. Bottom line: the album is one of the stronger pop-R&B releases of the last few years.
  2. With its smooth melodies ("Just Right"), fresh beats ("Diamond Girl") and effortlessly suave lyrics ("Quicksand"), the album satisfies from beginning to end.
  3. The tracks are tuneful and bounce in all the right fluffy ways. But the songs--most are three minutes--are unmemorable, and Leslie, who comfortably shifts from lower register to a sweet falsetto, isn't a commanding vocalist.
