Priceless

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Like her platinum debut, Soul of a Woman, and 2000's Mirror Mirror, Kelly Price's third disc addresses the universal themes of love, loss, romance, and marriage. But with a winning mix of up-tempo songs such as the club thumper "Take It to the Head," featuring rapper Keith Murray, and sweeping ballads such as "He Proposed," Priceless is the newly svelte diva's most intimate and musically diverse album to date. Other highlights include the Latin-tinged "Again," featuring the legendary Eric Clapton on guitar, and the mid-tempo groove "So Sweet," produced by and featuring Raphael Saadiq. And on the disc's final track, Price pays homage to her church roots with a 2003 rendition of the Clark Sisters' "You Brought the ...

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
She almost quit the industry a few years back, and fortunately she didn't, because Priceless is almost as good as her 1997 debut. Priceless features a multitude of guests ranging from Eric Clapton to fellow diva Faith Evans, but it's Price's voice that unquestionably stands out as the centerpiece. Equal parts powerful and sensual, Priceless reads from track to track almost like an autobiography of Price's life. Easily the highlight of the album is a powerful duet with Faith Evans that unquestionably steals the show. But Priceless is not without its faults, either. There are moments of self-indulgence that hinder Priceless from being great instead of "just good." Unnecessary skits about expensive cars and borrowing the melody of The Brady Bunch theme song just seem unoriginal and downright wrong. That aside, Priceless is a solid album and a much-needed return of a quality R&B vocalist in a genre over-saturated with mediocrity.
