AllMusic Review by

Mary Griffin's debut album, For the First Time, is a well-crafted collection of urban contemporary R&B and adult contemporary pop that showcases her dynamic vocals to fine effect, even when the songwriting is less than stellar. In fact, Griffin often outshines her material -- given the right songs, she could be something else -- but when she has a good song, such as the sultry "Just No Other Way" or the grooving "Make It Up to You," she makes it her own and establishes that she's a singer with some real potential.
