Compared to Christina Aguilera, another mentioned inspiration, Tinashe's voice is almost always quiet and soft, yet her ability is considerable, and she packs a wide variety of approaches.

At the age of 13, this was the first R&B album I've ever listened to.

I'll never forget the first time I listened to "Aquarius" & "Cold Sweat" (with earphones thankfully) They were like musical revelations to me & triggered something in my brain. The album truly made me appreciate music.

O potencial artístico que Tinashe tem é tão incrível, realmente uma pena ter sido contratada por uma gravadora tão medíocre para produzir e divulgar este álbum
