Great Singing, So-So Songs

"Joi wrote and produced this album herself. She sounds divine. Nearly every song, however, is a wafer-thin ballad. The album would have benefited from more instruments and energy. The arrangements are heavy on numbing R&B percussion. But oh, that voice! "Superstar," a cover of The Carpenters hit, is a pleasure. "Be My Baby" is lovely too, although it sounds like a buildup to some full-fledged anthem that never appears. Maybe Joi will remix it for her club audience; it's aching for a trance treatment. Speaking of remixing, the album's last track, "Last Chance for Love," gets an excellent remix on the maxisingle (also available on Logic Pride Vol. 2)."
