Editorial Reviews

New York Times
One of the most determinedly virtuous songwriters in R&B or pop, India.Arie strives to make faith, goodness and positive thinking seductive...As usual most of the songs feature India.Arie’s acoustic guitar and her forthright but still girlish voice, with its Stevie Wonder phrasing.
Billboard - Gail Mitchell
Reinvigorated after the painful breakup chronicled in 2006's "Testimony: Vol. 1, Love & Relationship," Arie provides a multicultural dialogue about love and human politics.
USA Today
Whether dealing with heartache, reveling in newfound love or pondering the human condition, her songs resound with keen insight and warm passion. It gives her Testimony a ring of truth.

This album is indeed different from all her others, but there is something about this one that I can¿t stop listening to. True, there are some songs that stand out more than others like Chocolate High and Yellow, but in general the album is worth the buy. I Love India Arie and people should support her and her music!

Although I have Billy Joel, Jimmy Buffett, and Garth Brooks in my library favorites to go along with U2 and Jack Johnson, this CD is relaxing and fun, with one radio hit possible with 'Therapy'. You will not be disappointed with this addition to your music library. There are many songs that are outstanding, making this one to purchase.

India Arie continues to show her humanity and love for all, especially women on this album. Her voice is soothing and beautiful. He Heals Me is a song mothers should play for their daughters everywhere.

There wre only a couple of songs from listening to the samples that I would want to listen to. She has a big fan base, so they'll go buy this...me, I download maybe 1 or 2 songs from Itunes. whole album not worth $14 bucks.
