Raphael Saadiq: Instant Vintage
Marc Weingarten, Los Angeles Times, 9 June 2002
SAADIQ WOULD rather lay back than throw down. He's got a touch of Smokey Robinson's liquid satin in his phrasing and a complete absence of grit. His voice is a supple instrument that commands your attention because it insidiously draws you close and then envelops you.
