Critical Reception[edit]

Considered by many to be their best work to date, Les Nubians released their debut album in 1999 to wide fanfare. Writing for Time that year, Christopher John Farley said of this album that it "blends smooth jazz, soft pop and warm R&B with a dash of danceable hip-hop" and that the album had an "emotional generosity and a spiritual depth" that came through on every track.
