Editorial Reviews

Seldom has the name of an album been more apt: Minnie Riperton possessed a perfectly angelic voice. This utterly entrancing 1974 set generated Minnie s breakthrough to mainstream stardom, its gold record status fueled in large part by its mammoth hit 'Lovin You.' Cut at the Record Plant in L.A. with Stevie Wonder s band (anchored by bassist Reggie McBride and drummer Ollie Brown) in succulent support, 'Perfect Angel' was an altogether enchanting vehicle for Riperton s five-and-a-half-octave vocal range. She could effortlessly float all the way up into Yma Sumac territory while retaining a singular spine-chilling soulfulness.

5.0 out of 5 stars "A "PERFECT" MAJOR LABEL DEBUT..." November 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD
was this album back in 1974. With the hit single "Lovin' You" leading the way, Minnie put together an album that exposed the world to this fine singer-songwriter. It's an original work, one that could be called "Neo-Soul" for its time. Minnie touches on a wide range of influences with this project. The rockin' "Everytime He Comes Around," the jazzy "Take a Little Trip," the "Stevie Wonderish" "Perfect Angel." All the tunes are interpreted in a unique, special way and Minnie touches your soul through her amazing voice, the voice of an angel. Those who thought Minnie was a one hit wonder found out otherwise with her second album, "Adventures in Paradise" which further showcased her original talent, a talent we still miss to this day. "Perfect Angel" is just that: PERFECT IN EVERY WAY and a CLASSIC!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best work! July 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Minnie's voice is always so pure and clear as to defy description, but Stevie Wonder's arrangements make this album the best of all her work. Literally, the songs are so beautiful, they will bring you to tears. If you haven't heard this music since you got rid of your record collection, treat yourself to the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars when a Album Meant something May 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
this Album is something else.Minnie Riperton has Deniece Williams another Dynomite Singer,Michael Sembello a Solid Session Musician who was a part of Stevie Wonder's Band&Who later went on to do Songs for Films&a ton of other Session work. then there is Stevie who Musically clicked really strongly with Minnie&Her range.the title cut alone is pure Magic.the arrangements,harmonys&Musicianship are all Strong to's the kind of Album where things all fell into place really well.Minnie Riperton was a Great Vocalist&Writer.I'd take Her over anything that is out now without thinking twice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovin Minnie October 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was only a little pup when she died, but even then I knew and loved her classic "Lovin You". Years later,after I went through my teeny pop days (NKOTB) and my rap days (NWA) and neither really made me feel good or inspired me. I needed something more. Something more lasting. Something more real. That's when I found Minnie after someone introduced me to jazz and classic R&B. And for the past two years, I have been searching for all her cds and materials. I really hope her label release her last 3 cds. But let me just say, Mariah or Chante can't touch Minnie. If you want proof, get this cd. 30 years later, NO R&B cd release in the 90s have come close to the greatest of "Perfect Angel". This cd is too perfect. Get it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minnie Was The Best. :'( July 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Perfect Angel is a 2010 CD re-issue of the 1975 debut album by the late Minnie Ripperton. This CD album has all the tracks re-mastered, including the classic and beloved "Loving You". Minnie had paved the way for many female pop artists from the mid-1970's to today. It is heartbreaking that Miss Ripperton did not live long enough to see her musical talents praised by a new generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Songs by a Perfect Songtress August 26, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you love the mesmerizing beautiful voice of Minnie Riperton, you will adore this album of music on CD that introduced us to Ms. Riperton via solo. Oh, the wonderful songs and lyrics carry a deep coherent message that we don't always get today. The words really mean something as deeply as the music is beautiful. A must have in your collection if you're a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect representation of the 70's
Sound quality and arrangements were better than I remember. In addition Stevie Wonder's influence and contribution while at the top of his career really made a difference.
