Editors’ Notes Perfect Angel glows with Minnie Riperton’s captivating blend of easy pop, folk rock, soul, and funk. Her commanding, five-octave range is rich with color and warmth, whether channeling undimmed optimism on the ballad “The Edge of a Dream” or conjuring lazy evenings with the softly rocking “It’s So Nice (To See Old Friends).” “Lovin’ You,” a sugary-sweet lullaby inspired by the birth of her daughter, features a trembling coo rendered in whistle register. But it’s the title track—swaying between sun-kissed pop rock and funky grooves—that best defines this versatile icon.
