  4. 7.4 |   Pitchfork

    Chilli and T-Boz have crafted a conscious epilogue to their catalog and a love letter to their fans. It hits every style in their vast range and dignifies their career

  5. 7.0 |   Prefix

    Iconic R&B act return with Kickstarter-funded album that largely proves to be money well-pledged

  6. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    The new songs here may not launch them back out into the commercial music stratosphere, but they definitely deserve to stay in orbit

    A familiar sound delivered with peak contemporary production

  8. 6.1 |   Paste Magazine

    TLC doesn’t take any creative risks and, in doing so, ends up lukewarm and average — two words that would have never been used to describe TLC in their heyday

  9. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    If TLC accomplishes one thing, it’s that it shows the distinction between being nostalgic and reliving the past

  12. 6.0 |   Q

    There's a cheesy feel to many tracks but it's good fun. Print edition only
