A SHARP debut from Angela Winbush!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Angela Winbush's solo debut SHARP, is indeed a sharp piece of work. One half of the Rene & Angela duo, Ms. Winbush is an accomplished writer, producer, arranger, and an excellent vocalist. Her writing is R&B at it's best. Her later work with The Isley Brothers will prove that. On this excellent debut, the stand outs are the masterful ballads. On first listen, you'll be transfixed with the gut-wrenching ballads on the "Quiet Storm Side." You Had A Good Girl, No One Has Cared (Like You), Hello Beloved, and the hit, Angel, provide the steam needed for any romantic evening. Though the funky cuts on the "Slammin' Side" sound dated, Sensual Lover still holds up as a smooth R&B jewel. The other cuts were very good indeed for their time. This is a worthy debut from a lady as talented as they come. She's proven this on her two susequent releases as well."
One of the most underrated artists of our time..

"As a previous reviewer stated, Ms. Winbush is way beyond just being a singer. She can produce, write arrange and sing! She is the total package. Although I didn't really care for the dated sound of the fast songs as much, the slow songs more than made up for them. Classics like Angel and Hello are worth the price of the CD alone! I have all of her CDs. Her writing and music seemed to get better with each album. I wish she would produce some more music. Her voice is truly missed in what the music industry is passing off as R&B these days." say the least!

"No one has a grasp on contemporary adult R&B like Angela Winbush. On her fist solo album she creates an ambiance of self-assuredness, devotion, and warmth, which is quite a feat with the relatively cold, synth-heavy production that covers the album. The Isley Brothers-type steamy "quiet storm" ballads are the least dated tracks, although the faster songs on the first half of the album have a funky edge. If you want quality pre-New Jack Swing R&B from on of the '80s (and'90s) greats, buy this album"
