    Weather reflects a bracingly tough-minded attitude toward love. [18 Nov 2011, p.103]

    Weather is a beautiful album and the most intimate project we've heard from Ndegeocello in the last few years.

    Ndegeocello is making some of the finest music of her life.

    She's always been an insightful and empathetic observer of the human condition, but Weather is such a heady album because of how unflinchingly Ndegeocello has turned her keen observational eyes toward herself.

    Weather is so deftly under-produced that you turn it up; so hazy and intimate you're drawn in close. [Jan 2012, p.98]

    Ultimately, this extremely curious album requires several airings to achieve an improved view, and a confirmation of its secretive charms.

    Weather presents a vastly sophisticated and mature songwriter who has managed to put aside her need to stand on the soap box and declare her political and social ideals.

    With Weather, Ndegeocello shows how she's poised to follow Animal Collective down the rabbit hole and into a promised land of greater musical freedom.

    It adds up to an album of left-field soul that's downcast but not at all a bummer.

    An audacious compilation of carefully arranged instrumentals under reflective lyrics.
  11. 80
    Weather is her most consistently strong album in some time, a product of vision and discipline.

    Every musical stroke is a concise yet instinctive caress.

    Ndegéocello's work has often been heavy with mood while elliptical of songcraft, but Weather contains her most direct material since the early 1990s

    This is a more low-key collection. [Feb 2012, p.94]
