CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Most illuminating are the slow jams that, like a few songs off the debut, either repurpose or evoke mellow R&B and jazz grooves from the late '70s.

Exclaim!

Overall, hardcore R&B fans will appreciate age/sex/location most, but this is an album made for cuffing season and should probably be listened to by lovesick single people still figuring it out.

I don’t know what you guys are talking about but this record is GREAT and a huge improvement from Shea Butter Baby imo. That one was enjoyable too but it had a lot of ups and downs, while this is extremely consistent from top to bottom. The production is nearly flawless throughout the entire album. It’s sensual and groovy but also delicate and pleasant enough to let Ari's undeniable voice shine. The instruments are really well mixed and I love how the bass is very upfront, ... read more
