  1. Through almost as many producers as Mary, this album has a single identity, a contour and a groove that suits its well-inhabited breakup concept.
  2. Mojo
    It is her most intense, but perhaps also her most pleasurable excursion yet. [Jan 2008, p.104]
  3. Uncut
    Upping the tempo-and libido of her Grammy-winning "Beautifully Human," here Scott lays the funky paramaters wide open. Jan 2008, p.100]
  4. Scott weaves through the music like a woman who's taken her time contemplating what feelings ought to sound like.
  5. These songs sound like they were written as she was fed chocolate-dipped strawberries while sprawled out on a bed cloaked with rose petals.
  6. Scott's music is more about groove and mood than song.
  7. Q Magazine
    It's a bedroom album, albeit an intelligent, challenging one. [Jan 2008, p.110]
