    Excellent. Coppola usually hops from genre to genre but here she settles down on one sound and it works very well. I do hope her next album is something completely different, though.

    This album has a great flow. Upbeat, lots of old school throwbacks, good beats.

  1. On this excellent debut by her new duo with programmer Adam Pallin, Imani Coppola sounds no more interested in sticking to a single style than she usually does.

    She’s more geeky than queenly anyway, ­jazzily singing and breezily rapping over buoyant reggae and soul throwback beats sculpted by a guy named Adam who previously worked with American Idol finalist Elliott Yamin.

    Her attitide is occasionally a touch too self-satisfied, but tthat's a small price to pay for such an abundance of sparkling snark. [18 Jul 2008, p.65]
