AllMusic Review by

Perfect Angel is the best Minnie Riperton album, and still the closest she came to stardom. Stevie Wonder chipped in on drums, keyboards, and other instruments, and also wrote several tracks. "Reasons" was her finest uptempo tune, while the title track was a wonderful change-of-pace number. She also got her biggest hit, "Lovin' You," which became a signature tune. [In 2017, following numerous reissues that quickly went out of print, original label Capitol released a definitive Deluxe Edition, expanded with extended versions mixed by John Morales.]
