When it comes to straight wailing power, there aren't many more ferocious than Kelly Price. The only vocalist to emerge in recent years who actually deserves to be compared to Aretha, Price does nothing less than electrify when her magnificent instrument wraps around the right material. Problem is, these serendipitous moments don't happen nearly as much as they should on Mirror Mirror, her sophomore effort. The best tracks--the stunning remake of Shirley Murdock's "As We Lay," "Can't Run Away," a low-down, no-diggety-style funk, and "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow," a showstopping gospel number--display the diva at the top her game--poised, passionate, and potent. Yet the remaining tunes never rise above standard minor-key ballad fare, and find Price belting monotonous melodies that shortchange both her as an artist, and us as listeners. --Sylvia W. Chan

"Kelly Price has come back with a new attitude on her second project, Mirror Mirror. She comes across more of a self-assured, confident woman on this cd than she did on Soul of A Woman. Guest appearances on this cd include R.Kelly, Method Man, Gerald Levert, K-Ci, and even Jeff Jr. and Jonia (her children). Definite hits include:She Wants You- Acknowledgement of the scheming woman who her man says is just a "friend"3 Strikes- For the man who has just messed up too many timesMarried Man- Confronting her lover who obviously 'forgot' to tell her he was marriedAll I Want Is You- A confession of infidelity **As We Lay**- A remake of the 80's Shirley Murdock hit (My favorite)**I Know Who Holds Tomorrow**- A gospel song that simply overflows with Kelly Price's gift of soul and voice. (Another favorite)I definitely give this 5 stars because it displays her growth, not only as an artist but a woman. Pick this one up. Its' hot!"

"Just when you thought her debut album Scent Of A Woman was superb .. She is back with another SUPERB effort .. She really came back with an album that surpasses her debut.. All the tunes are great one of the most touching songs on this disc is The Lullaby this is a beautiful touching song to her children ..The song also features her two children Jeffrey Jr and Jonia.. The other song on this disc that really moved me the gospel song I Know Who Holds Tomorrow,this song really blew me away worth the price of the CD alone.. Her remarkable remake of the Shirley Murdock tune As A We Lay is simply great.. I usually dont particular care for a lot of remakes but she does on great job pretty much true to the orginial version.. Other noteworthy tunes Cant Run Away, the incredible duet All I Want is You Featuring K-Ci & Gerald Levert, She Wants You, At Least( The Little Things), Mirror Mirror .. This is truly a great effort from one of the premire singers.. It is worth every dollar, If you enjoyed her first album you will simply love this one .."

"Kelly Price returns with Mirror Mirror, her sophmore effort. It leads up to its expectations, and even more! She is a wonderful singer and has a beautiful voice. You feel like she is singing just for you, like she was your friend or something. My favorites include the title track (AWESOME). I Know Who Holds Tommorow and As We Lay, you can just feel the power and emotion in her voice. Another touching song is The Lullaby, which is dedicated to her children, who sing with her. I think Kelly should duet with Mary J Blige. They would sound great together. If you like R&B/soul type music, this is a great cd for you!"
