All Music Guide - Matthew Chisling
In this new millennium music era, R&B stars are a dime a dozen, where thousands of great singers struggle for a piece of the fame pie. Ledisi, a New Orleans soul singer who has long struggled for fame, proves on her album Lost & Found that she deserves more than just a sliver. Lost & Found is a rare gem from 2007, a complex vocal masterpiece that shimmers and tantalizes with smooth beats, impressive songs, great mixes, and one incredible vocalist; Ledisi shreds this 18-track set and wrecks every single note with her jaw-dropping vocals. Tracks like "In the Morning," shattering ballads of love and so much more, glisten like chocolate-covered strawberries ...

All Music Guide - Matthew Chisling
In this new millennium music era, R&B stars are a dime a dozen, where thousands of great singers struggle for a piece of the fame pie. Ledisi, a New Orleans soul singer who has long struggled for fame, proves on her album Lost & Found that she deserves more than just a sliver. Lost & Found is a rare gem from 2007, a complex vocal masterpiece that shimmers and tantalizes with smooth beats, impressive songs, great mixes, and one incredible vocalist; Ledisi shreds this 18-track set and wrecks every single note with her jaw-dropping vocals. Tracks like "In the Morning," shattering ballads of love and so much more, glisten like chocolate-covered strawberries with every listen. The soulful dazzle that makes stars out of singers is heard in every beat, every note, and every word. The album, even at 18 tracks long, never loses its focus; it doesn't rely on the hook of one song to convince the shopper to buy it. It doesn't play up to the R&B hype of its era with computers and guest rappers to entertain the minds of the listeners. It brings listeners back to a time when all you had to do was sing well to garner attention and praise similar to the new queen of neo-soul, Amy Winehouse. Yet Ledisi doesn't simply rely on her vocals; along with the help of Colin Stanbeck, Ledisi, who co-produced Lost & Found as well as being a songwriter of nearly the entire album, doesn't promote a hollow disc like many of the wannabes of this decade. Packed with warming cheers and moving motifs, the album traps listeners with everything that a record possibly could. It's perfect for all sentiments and feelings; for those who feel excited, blue, or even in the mood, Lost & Found appeals to all who are fortunate to get their hands on a copy of it. It's an instant classic that should propel Ledisi to instant stardom, and is without question the only album that could rival Amy Winehouse's Back to Black in the past several years on quality, style, and sheer vocal capability, of which Ledisi has so much to spare. This is the new standard of R&B/soul; let's see who can match up to it now.
Billboard - Gail Mitchell
Now Ledisi's sassy vocals (think Minnie Riperton meets Sarah Vaughan) are poised to reach a wider arena with the release of her Verve debut. A fitting scenario, given that Ledisi's name means "to come forth" in Nigerian.

Her voice, her lyrics, her sound radiate all light...

    Wonderful Soul Addition

    I picked up Ledisi's album on a whim and boy, am I ever glad that I did! She was the best purchase of the day! This album is filled with relaxing, inspirational music that truly soothes the soul. In true Neo-Soul fashion, she has created an album that is great from start to finish! If you enjoy Rahsaan Patterson, Maxwell, classic Jill Scott and Amel Larrieux, then you will love this album! Be sure to add it to your collection, you won't be disappointed in the LEAST!

    Haven't heard talent like this since Chaka Khan in the 80's

    I must say that I recently went to a Ledisi concert with friends having just barely heard of her from a cousin and with no formal expectations. By the next morning every one of the people in my group of ten had bought her album and played it on repeat. Simply put, Ledisi is the answer to the prayers of those missing good quality music based on unprocessed vocal talent. I only wish that her first two albums would be re-released so that I can continue to support someone so deserving. BTW, I hope we don't have to wait long for a live album to be released. It would no doubt be my favorite CD since The Miseducation of Lauren Hill.

    beautiful

    I heard Ledisi one morning on the Steve Harvey Morning Show and I tell you she blow me away with her sound. Incrediable voice with a smooth and powerful tone, the CD is a must have.
