  1. 8.0 |   All Music

    Although very eclectic taste is required to appreciate in full, this is clearly Rowland’s brightest, most confident album yet

  2. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    She's unlikely to dislodge Queen B, but this album shows Rowland to be worthy of consideration in her own right

  3. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    While Mrs. Jay-Z settles into a life of respectability, her old bandmate is relishing her role as the fun single friend
    Read Review

  4. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    She's a strong, agile R&B vocalist who generates little excitement—adept, but not convincing

  5. 6.0 |   music OMH

    40 minutes of precision-tuned pre-club glossiness - without a doubt perfectly serviceable. The only trouble of course is that these days, simply being serviceable just isn’t good enough

  6. 6.0 |   BBC

    Clubbier cuts like Forever and a Day and current single Down for Whatever suggest that Rowland's future could lie as a kind of dance diva with street cred
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Much of the material is generic: bland Euro bangers such as the abjectly titled "Down for Whatever" abound
    Read Review

  8. 5.0 |   Slant Magazine

    The inherent blandness of Rowland's persona makes for too much roundly mediocre material
    Read Review

  9. 4.0 |   Evening Standard

    Even a cameo from the usually brilliant Lil Wayne fails to liven things up
    Read Review

  10. 4.0 |   The Independent

    The lack of inspiration here is nowhere better conveyed than on "Down for Whatever"
    Read Review

  11. 4.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    Rowlands’ mighty vocals would obliterate her Saturday evening charges’, but the music is sterile pro forma club r’n’b and steamy slow jams
    Read Review

  12. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

    She delivers a fierce vocal performance in places but undercuts this by trading in platitudes and anonymous dancefloor filler
    Read Review

  13. 4.0 |   The Digital Fix

    The whole affair has a phoned-in quality
