"Love & Lust shines with honesty, intensity and emotion. In fact, the Ontario artist seems to have reached the pinnacle of her career as a songwriter. She has a nice mix of folk and contemporary indie pop, as an amalgam of Patsy Cline and Feist."
"A record fully engrossed in the dark truths of infidelity, human frailty, and all of the darkest corners of the categories of Love and Lust, Kelly reveals herself in ways we've not yet seen from the Toronto songwriter."
"Standout songs include “Make it Easy,” a song with enough power that it could very well make Jadea Kelly a household name. The lyrics and soundscapes are transcendent with arrangements that would be perfect as a soundtrack to a big-budget film. Jadea’s voice transfixes the listener and sets the stage for the rest of the album."
