AllMusic 3.5/5 stars[1]

Stigma is the second studio album by English rock band EMF, released in 1992. "It's You" was actually called "It's You That Leaves Me Dry" but was re-titled to "It's You" and re-mixed for the single release.

Reception[edit]

Geoff Orens of AllMusic gave the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, feeling that the overall mood and lyrical themes of the album were different from what would have been expected by fans: "For a fan base ready for more "Unbelievable"'s however, Stigma was far from enticing and unfortunately sold less than hoped, leading to EMF's less-than-grand return to the foray of pop on Cha Cha Cha."[1]
