Review: With finely-honed vocal chops channeled through some compelling compositions of her own and a few distinctively-performed covers, Kendrick is a complete artist. Kendrick has an equal fondness for jazz, pop and R&B, and what's most noteworthy about Kendrick's music is how seamlessly her disparate musical interests flow together.
