We gave it a B+

The street-wise Philly ? soulstress has spent more time lately on acting than on music. (She ? traveled to Botswana to play the lead on HBO’s The No. 1 ? Ladies’ Detective Agency.) Here, though, she returns to R&B like she never left: With its earnest introspection and earthy ? textures — not to mention guest spots by Eve and Anthony Hamilton — The Light of the Sun has a distinctly early-aughties vibe, recalling an era when tempos were slower and voices less Auto-Tuney. It’s a welcome flashback. B+
