We gave it a B+

After a four-year break, Monica returns with an assured ?album that seems entirely unconcerned with staying current. Though Still Standing features circa-now hitmakers like Ne-Yo, the ?appealingly unflashy CD feels like a return to the mid-’90s heyday of acts such as Deborah Cox and Total. With its old-school Deniece Williams sample, single ”Everything to Me” looks back even further. A low-key delight. B+
