Jimmy Scott is 69, but he still possesses one of the most unusual vocal instruments in pop music. Due to a hormonal abnormality called Kallmann's Syndrome, Scott never lost his boy soprano, which has mellowed with the years into something resembling Lena Horne's alto but not exactly like anything else in the world. Combined with that peculiar timbre is a style of phrasing which is forever holding back the beat but never quite losing it. Scott has lost some of the bell-like purity of his voice, but his grainier singing on Dream still sounds sensational. --Geoffrey Himes

"If I were going to be stranded on a desert island and could only take 2 CD's, this would be one. (The other would be Kind of Blue). This is quintessential late nite jazz. A classic."

"This is a continuation of my collection. I am so delighted to have the priviledge of listening to the "Voice" once more in this lifetime. Jimmy Scott is the epitimy of the 'good times' when women wore high heels, flirty skirts and had manners!"

"This simply isn't as satisfying an album as Scott's previous one--"All the Way." Not only is the audio occasionally inferior but flutter is noticeable on some of the piano work, esp. "Don't Take Your Love." Still, there are some fine swinging moments on "I Cried for You," with exceptional work by Milt Jackson."
