Rolling Stone
In fact, Robinson’s much touted abilities as a poetic lyricist aren’t very important here, the sexy directness of “Storm” and “Backatcha” notwithstanding. His production and singing carry the album. […]

The album opens like radio theater: an impossibly high-pitched synth-produced whistle– our soft warning siren– is paired with wind sound effects, which gradually give way to a loping bassline that could have been drawn from countless 60s Motown hits. […]

Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
Some of it is so lush and down-tempo that it threatens to be boring – “Happy (Love Theme From ‘Lady Sings The Blues’)” takes so long to build that you might pass out before the ecstatic finale. […]
