  1. There may be very little here that is truly innovative, but Thicke proves that new dogs do old tricks pretty well.
  2. Though his sources remain numerous, this is his most focused, least scattered, and least dilettantish set, and it benefits greatly from its brevity relative to "The Evolution."
  3. He's got an exceptionally stylish and more importantly, sellable album to back it up.
  4. Amid the attempts at sexual healing and cosmic, eco-soul unity, Thicke crafts some beautiful atmospheres.
  5. A modern '70s Motown pastiche, that makes him a serious rival to John Legend. [Dec 2008, p.133]
  6. As a utilitarian background soundtrack, it'll do nicely.
  7. 50
    Every white soul traditionalist from Hall & Oates to Duffy demands catchy, impactful songs, yet that’s where Thicke is thinnest.
