AllMusic Review by

It's not quite the ultimate, but it's close. A Teena Marie album that doesn't include "Déjà Vu (I've Been Here Before)," "Dear Lover," and "Out on a Limb" doesn't merit the ultimate tag, but still, there are plenty of goodies. The soulful Lady T will bring you to tears on "Young Love," "My Dear Mr. Gaye," and "Irons in the Fire"; she remains as effective on upbeat rockers like "I Need Your Lovin'," "Work It," and "Square Biz." The album also includes her biggest charting single "Lovergirl," the exotic "Portuguese Love," and her career-blossoming hit with Rick James, "I'm a Sucker for Your Love."
