5.0 out of 5 stars Can I Get A Refill? August 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I have loved Elle Varner's voice every since I heard her song "Only Wanna Give it to You. That's exactly the way I feel about this guy I had feelings for! I can relate to all of her songs.Elle Varner is not only an amazing singer,she is an amazing song writer..much like her parents of course. Alot of artist don't write their own music these's really rare sometimes.Elle seems to paint a picture in all of her songs, and their is always some type of meaning to all of them. She is one of my favorite female singers out right now.

I got her mixtape a couple of months ago and I was SO excited to hear that her debut album was coming out. I knew it was gonna be Fly. I bought as soon as it hit Itunes last Tuesday.

I'll just break down all the songs.

1.) :::::::::Only Wanna Give it to You:::::::::
-Well I already said I love this song to death.I think every girl feels this way about that one special guy. "No room in my bed for another lover."


I loved this song when I first heard it. The hook;"Reee-eeeee" was just so beautiful. I think she's talking about how she doesn't wanna stop talking to this guy on the phone or wherever they are. Even though "I've never had game,no never..don't wanna sound like a broken record." She still doesn't wanna get off the phone with him. Their was also a track on her mixtape "Conversational Lush." It's the album version of "Refill" and it's really slow and beautiful. It's only about a min long, but in the beginning of it,she is talking to a guy. She says things like "I don't why every time i talk to you..I don't know what to say." I can relate to this song alot too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop listening to this.. August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with Elle when I downloaded her mixtape Conversational Lust. I love this cd just as much as the mixtape. Her cd is a feel good R&B/POP album. I can't stop listening to Not Tonight, but love every song on her album. Great job and never change your music.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Like Perfectly Perfect August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Elle Varner's Perfectly Imperfect is an amazing experience! I'm a long-time R&B fan and I have been severely disappointed by the direction of the genre, but Ms. Varner has given me much hope! Her lyrics are open, honest, and filled with meaning. Her delivery is always on point. The production is a consistently creative mixture of R&B, Soul, Hip hop, funk, rock, and pop that will either make your head nod or have you sitting back in nostalgia. Perfectly Imperfect is a perfect (pun intended) debut project that has to be a sure thing come Grammy night.

I have heard a few people express their caution in buy Perfectly Imperfect because their dislike of her single Refill. While I love Refill, no two songs on the album sound alike so DO NOT let your distaste for one song prevent you from enjoying a fantastic project! At least listen to a stream first!

4.0 out of 5 stars Miss Varner. May I call you Miss Varner? August 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Let me just say that I am a new fan of Elle's. I had heard samples of singles here and there, and I was less than impressed, especially with "Refill." Which is a reason the album gets 4 stars, because of it and I'm not a big fan of "Welcome Home." Yet, listening to all the other lovely samples convinced me to go ahead and press download. NO REGRETS! I don't typically leave reviews, so an album has to significantly stand out for me to even consider it.

I've had the album on repeat all day. "Only Wanna Give It To You" is sassy and fun, and J. Cole adds a nice hip-hop touch to it. "Leaf" is beautiful. "Oh What a Night" is a story. But "I Don't Care", hands down, is my favorite track on the album. And I can't pinpoint one element of why I love it, I just do!

I was so intrigued by Miss Varner's music that in reading up on her, I found out she'd released a mixtape earlier this year. Downloaded it, too! Loved it!

Yes, her voice has hints of Chrisette Michele jazz vocals in it, but she is truly all Elle. I hope she does well and goes far so that she can continue making more music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely album except one song. August 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The only song that is not my cup of tea is the Sound Proof Room; still a pretty sexy song, but the arrangement is odd. Outside of that the album is diverse and rich. I did not waste my money. Her voice is just a pretty as her look, vain I know, but hard to miss. I listened to her mixtape at least once a day when it came out so having a full version of Refill is really nice.

My final thought it I wanna hug Elle and "..say girl you are So Fly you don't have to wish it..". I plan on making sure my baby girl realizes how pretty she is as well.

Perfectly Imperfect my ass, more like Just Perfect the way God made you...:-)

3.0 out of 5 stars better than the mixtape. . . August 12, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Yes I am going to say this. . .I am not the biggest fan of her voice. . .her conversational lust mixtape annoyed me as something was off about her voice. . .however this debut proves to be better. I still do not care for the high pitch scratchiness of her voice but she has talent. She's refreshing and fun and I like that about her. He music does not sound like the same shit every other chick puts out. She actually stands apart from many and to come out and do that is impressive. Her voice will have to grow on me but I mainly brought this album because I support real talent and hard working up and coming artists and thats what she is to me. . .I see her having a spot in the spotlight regardless of how awful I think her voice can sound at times. She makes me contradict myself but oh well. . .kudos to her

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid
Solid album for the new chick. I was surprised but it's what R&B is missing. Someone that will take a chance and put out an album that is actually their own body of work!

3.0 out of 5 stars "...eleven separate album concepts."
The album is titled appropriately; It's not the worst, it's not the best. It's as if each song is the beginning or pieces of eleven separate album concepts. Read more
