  • Summary: Andre 3000, Sean Lennon and Cee Lo guest on the first album in seven years for Canadian singer Jen-Bea Englishman.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 8
  2. Negative: 1 out of 8
  1. Establishes her as the progenitor of what could be called electro-ethno-pop.
  2. Even more of a musical jumble than her first album.
  3. Lyrically feisty and stylistically expanded.
  4. Scattered. [8 Jul 2005, p.69]
  5. Wikked Lil' Grrrls occasionally gets lost between songwriting, thematics, and stylistic flow.
  6. She seems to be lost among her new surroundings, pulling in old styles and dated arrangements to seemingly express her dissatisfaction and confusion with where music is going.
  7. A towering monument to Esthero's overpowering sense of self satisfaction, this mess overstays its welcome and abuses whatever attention you're willing to spend on it. In short, it's not a career highlight.

    Amazing CD. I have been waiting for her second CD for a long time. It is definitely "mixed" in genres, but, that is part of the beauty of it all.

    this album was put together so smoothly and just has such a quality that no other artist could pull-off. I'm not really sure what the album didn't get such a good review by the critics, it bottles my mind. I LOVE this album and i LOVE Esthero!! Expand

    Esthero is everything that the mainstream pop artists should aspire to be. She was making the black Eyed Peas better long before anyone knew who Fergie was, and can easily sing circles around most of her contemporaries. However, Esthero does it HER way, which means she'll be obscure in her career, but will still be able to live with herself. Expand

    I've been looking for a new sound to embrace, and I've found it in Esthero! She's definatly merged several music styles into something provocative. Expand

    Can't say much for this album. Gwen Stefani wannabe songs, interspersed with self indulgent answering machine messages. Pass.
