Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (9/2/99, p.110) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...superstar-packed.... Mary is moving away from the...sound of her earlier albums into a sound that's...more soulful, singing over a large live band or alongside Eric Clapton's guitar or Elton's piano. But she remains the queen of hip-hop soul..."

Q (9/99, p.101) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...Whether freestyling over skipping, Timbaland-influenced beats on 'Beautiful One' or the straightforward swing of 'Your Child', Blige can turn from sassy to agonized to vulnerable in the space of a single phrase....The Queen Of Hip Hop Soul remains classy and invincible."

The Source (10/99, p.240) - "...when you take Mary's pure emotion...and place it over its rightful medium, something incredible is bound to happen....she dares to break the hip-hop soul template she helped create, and do something different. Something our loop-weary souls need."

Rap Pages (10/99, pp.144-5) - "...It's sweet. It's consistent. It's personable. It's mature....A field trip of energy relative to all. And of course, each track is blessed with the influence of Hip-Hop soul, jazz and blues. Hail Mary!" - Rating: B
